North v. South Varsities and NZU Games
North v. South Varsities and NZU Games.
These were played at Christchurch on July 16 and 19 respectively.
The inter-island match was convincingly won by South by 17 points to 3 (a penalty goal by Walter). The five Victoria representatives all played well, and four were selected for the NZU team, which beat Canterbury Reps, by 21 points to nil. These were A. S. Macleod, R. Jacob, R. T. Shannon and O. S. Meads, the last three all previously having gained NZU Rugby Blues. The representative standard of the Universities this year appears particularly high, and hopes of games against touring international teams should have been enhanced by last Saturday's performance.
