At the end of the Qualifying round the senior team, with nine points, is second equal to T.O.G. with 12. Thus the team is certain of playing Senior A after regarding. This is a real achievement on which the team is to be congratulated. It is years since a Varsity team played in this grade, and still more since one as good as the present was fielded. It has improved steadily and is showing the benefit gained from practices in much improved combination, especially among the forwards. Myra Baker has shown herself an outstanding goalkeeper in the games she has played.

The juniors finished the round about half-way up the grade, which is creditable considering the inexperience of its players. Elsie Bannister, Brenda Perry and Rosemary Watt are playing well in this team.

The intermediate never field the same team twice, but they have won two games out of four. The team needs more coaching, as many of the players know little of the game. Doreen Dore, who has been playing for this team, is obviously too good for this grade.

Last Saturday two fairly even teams were entered in the seven-a-side tournament. The A's won two games and lost one in their section, and the B's won one and lost two, neither qualifying for the semi-final.
