Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 5, No. 7. September 24, 1942


The Club finished its outside games with a special match against Air Force, winners of the Hardham Cup in the Senior Second Division, and came out victorious 17—16, after one of the best games of the year. The forwards were somewhat lethargic, but after Murphy, who played a great game, retired injured, the pack, led by MacLennan, played with much dash, and solid work by Skelley and Patrick in the backs, together with McKnight's great goal-kicking, turned the game our way. Richmond, replacing Swinburn at centre, was brilliant both on attack and defence, and the manner in which he outclassed the Air Force skipper and Wellington Rep., Clark, was a revelation after his somewhat inconsistent form throughout the year. Green, playing his last game for the Club in his proper position at full-back, gave a polished display. A very satisfactory finish to a most difficult season's sport.
