Senior B Rugby

Senior B Rugby

Handicapped by having no regular coach, and by a consequent lack of enthusiasm among its members, the Senior B team has done well to win three of its five matches to date, losing the other two by small margins. This team on paper is just about as good as the A's, it contains many players wild Senior A experience and with due attention to training and proper coaching could easily head the grade. Injuries, too, have played a part in this team's rather disorganised state. However, two players Harpur and Armour, earned selection in the Senior B reps., with Cunliffe also selected as emergency. The latter has been playing good football in the front row of the scrum, while the rest of the forwards are a pretty even lot, with plenty of weight and some speed. With regular mulches and training they would make a first-class pack. The backs are very sound with Brock the mainstay at half and McCowan a tower of strength at full-back. There are two fast and experienced wingers in Harpur, and O'Regan, hut those need to get more of the ball if the team wants to win its future matches.

It cannot be too strongly urges onthe members of this team that they should turn out regularly to practice. Even if they haven't a coach on practice nights, it will benefit them immensely to have the whole team together once at least during the week. With the facilities available on Kelburn Park, facilities the Club has never had before, there should be no reason for failing to turn up. Sacrifice going out with the girl friend and come to practice—take our tip, the Senior B champ, is yours if you want it.
