Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 4 March 29, 1939


The decision of the Wellington Rugby Union at its Annual Meeting recently to increase the number of Senior A teams to 12 means that the first fifteen will almost certainly be playing once again in the First Division.

Of last year's team Bob Thomas (London) and Alex. Armour (Master-ton) will be missing, but at present Dick-Wild and Joe Dryers are doubtful.

Acquisitions Include G. ("Fat") Rae, half-back for V.U.C. 1934-36 and for the N.Z.U. team in Japan: Frank Donovan, a V.U.C. winger in 1936; Young, from Duntroon Military College. Australia, five-eighths; Parker. St. Pat's O.B. seniors, five-eighths; Borrie, Otago Varsity "A." forward; and Anderson, Napier High School Old Boys Senior, forward, In addition there are a number of ex-members of first fifteens of secondary schools in the Wellington district. It is the club's policy to play the best of these freshers in the Third "A" team under the able guidance of Henry Moore.
