Hockey at Dunedin

Hockey at Dunedin

This week a men's team and a women's team of V.U.C. hockey players are in Dunedin, fighting through the annual inter-College hockey tournament. The men are led by F. L. Newcombe, centre-half, captain of the Wellington representatives in the recent match with the Indians. His team should have a moderately good chance of success, although little is known of this season's standard of hockey at the other colleges. Little notice need be taken of the decisive defeat of the senior team by the second Karori team on Saturday, for players on the eve of an important tournament and splendid trip are unlikely to throw themselves into an ordinary club game with their usual zest and disregard of consequences. The prospects of the women's team cannot be regarded hopefully. Very severe club defeats have been their lot this season.
