Marist Defeated

Marist Defeated

The Senior A Rugby team scored an unimpressive win over Marist, one of the teams promoted from Senior B.

In spite of the absence of Meads ad Burke through injury, the forwards played quite satisfactorily but received little support from the backs. Hansen was the outstanding forward. Playing a lively game, and McNicol and Russell were also prominent. The pack as a whole worked hard, securing a fair share of the ball in the set scrums and staging many effective dribbling rushes. Eade seems to be losing his good form and did a lot of aimless running about.

The backs were not impressive and in the second spell especially, indulged in a lot of misdirected passing. Bunddle returned to his position at half-back after several weeks absence through injury, but his service from the scrum was slow. Larkin also had an off day, his handling and passing being poor, briers, at second five-eights, showed excellent handling in picking up poor passes and played soundly.
