The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, 1939
Although the efforts of this team were not crowned with much success their play on the whole showed A gradual improvement as the season progressed. An all-round weakness in tackling was difficult to strengthen and some system of coaching in orthodox low tackling must be kept in mind for next season.
The pack for the most part was good, especially in the loose, but several really good rushes were marred by raggedness, and consequent lack of finish led to failure of attacks to be pressed home on many occasions.
However, each Saturday saw fifteen on the field in spite of a procession of losses and keenness waxed rather than waned with each defeat.
