Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 9. June 25, 1947



Fine displays by the Senior A team against Old Boys, the Senior B's against Eastbourne, and the Third B's against Plimmerton are the only events of note since the last set of notes was written.

Two events of the future, however, should be noted: the North v. South Varsities match and the game NZU v. Canterbury College, to be played at Christchurch on July 16 and 19 respectively.

The Senior side, after giving a very fine display of wet weather football to beat Old Boys, fell away last Saturday and were beaten by Athletic by 15-5, after a most uninspiring game. The forwards in particular were not nearly up to their best form.

It was a pity that the Senior B side lacked the little finesse necessary to finish their advantage against Eastbourne, a very strong team, and lost 3-10. The forwards, in particular, played their best game of the season.

The Junior A side got home from Mangaroa by 6-5 and from Te Tau Aroha by default, which leaves the; team with the creditable record of four wins, two losses and a draw.

The Junior B side has made great strides and on Saturday, playing, according to all reports, "the kind of football the crowds like," beat Marist by 8-3.

The Third A side has yet to be beaten, though a depleted team could only manage a 3-all draw against Wellington, a powerful combination on Saturday. It is hoped that the fair name of the side will not be sullied by a recurrence of this incident.

The Third B grade had an excellent win against Plimmerton, till then unbeaten, by 14-3 last Saturday.

The Third C side, although rather severely depleted the other Saturday, is suffering somewhat severely from the raids of the higher grades and has lost some of its players to other teams, but should nevertheless be capable of good things.
