[Introduction to Tournament, Vol. 3, No. 1. 1940]
This year's Tournament promises to the one of the brightest held for many years, because of the fact that it will probably be the last one until after the war. So far as we are concerned, the only two sports which have been affected are tennis and shooting. The tennis team has lost Norm Morrison, who has played brilliantly through the season, and the Rifle Club's activities have been restricted through shortage of ammunition and inability to obtain a range handy to Wellington.
In spite of this, Victoria's tournament team should be better balanced than that of last year. From performances the Athletic team is stronger in both field and track events, and should give a good account of itself, but we expect serious opposition from Otago. The Basketball team, on its present showing, appears to be as good as ever, though Auckland's team, unchanged since last year, promises some stiff opposition. Following are the teams, with brief commentaries on each. Go to, Wikitoria!
