Defeating Athletic 19-17 after being down 17-3 at half time, the third B enjoyed their second consecutive win of the season. This team was none too successful at the beginning of the year but extraordinary keenness and splendid team spirit allied to enthusiastic coaching by Ken Hoy has worked wonders. The Side should have its share of success from now on.
In the forwards Dix has proved a capable hooker while Jessep's weight and experience has effected a big improvement. Scott too is playing well. Martin, half or five-eighths, is showing promise and Power, a hard-running three-quarter with a splendid boot—he scored 16 points on Saturday—should be heard of again.
Of the remaining teams, Junior B defeated Institute 16-6, but the Social team had to lower its colours to Petone to the tune of 19-6. The Colts found to opposition at Silverstream, losing to College 13-6.
