Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 7. June 13, 1945
3A has put up two very fine performances. Against College "B" the team drew 2-2, and last week defeated Rongotai 3-2. This team appears to be very well-balanced, combining well, with each player keeping his proper position. Lack of real hard hitting is one point which should be noticed and remedied, particularly in the backs. The personnel of this team should also be congratulated for turning out in full numbers each week. If they keep it up, they will do even better.
3B, the "Hard Luck" team, has, alas, lost on both Saturdays. This was expected. On the first Saturday seven men turned up. On the second, Four turned up. It is hoped the team will not make a habit of it. In all falrness to the chaps who do turn up regularly, the personnel of this team should make a reasonable attempt to turn out in full numbers in future. It is hard luck for the members of the diminutive "team" who are prepared to play that a decent full-sized game cannot be played and enjoyed, not only by Varsity, but by their opponents. An earnest appeal is made to players to rally around and see that the College is represented fully on future Saturdays. The performances which were put up at the beginning of the season indicate that with a full team, 3B can really play fine hockey.
