Weaknesses in the senior team were shown up strikingly in its last match against T.O.G. In the forwards the worst fault was a tendency to pass practically straight across the field instead of gaining ground by forward hits. Understanding among the backs was not much in evidence. The full backs did not play far enough up the field so that if the halves were drawn out of position the opposing forwards had a clear run in front of them. This was partly due to a change over in positions owing to the absence of one of the usual players.

The Juniors were unfortunate in being two short, which probably accounted for their losing 2-0 to Wellington Tech. The forward line in particular was affected so that the game was mainly defensive in the first spell. In the second half the ball was in Tech.'s territory most of the time and our team was unlucky not to score.

The intermediate won its last match by default, only 6 of St. Joseph's turning up.
