Senior B Teams again Lose
Senior B Teams again Lose.
With only eight men, the Senior B [unclear: D] team again lost. This team is unfortunate in that it has to act as a [unclear: leeder] to the senior eleven. In the circumstances effective combition is difficult to [unclear: attain]. Chisholm. Pitt and Camp played quite well in a [unclear: forlogn] cause on Saturday.
A draw would have been a better reflection of the play in the match between the Senior B (2) team and Huia at Nai Nai. Despite the heavy ground, the game was surprisingly fast and open. F. Walker, left fullback, was forced to leave the field with a knee injury ten minutes after play started, but with ten men 'Varsity did surprisingly well. At half time the score was 2-all, and for much of the second half we held a [unclear: territorial advantage] Unfortunately the infrequent sorties of Huia into V'Varsity territory were capped by goals, although Olive effected several courageous and well-judged saves. Again Whittam, at left half, was outstanding. His stick work and mobility are consistently good, the other halves, worked hard, and England, in the forwards, displayed nippiness and good stick work. Packing the circle provided sound tactics for Huia.
