Defeat at Home Success Abroad For VUC Rugby

Defeat at Home Success Abroad For VUC Rugby

A moderate gloom must unfortunately darken this issue's account of recent Rugby, for there is a solitary win to record during the last fortnight.

The First XV has had two losses, the Senior B and Junior B sides two narrow defeats, the Third A one win and one loss, and the third B and C teams two losses each. The Third A's, however, made amends for their 8-0 loss to Silver stream by defeating Marist, hitherto unbeaten, by 3 points to nil, thus earning the distinction of playing the early game at Athletic Park on July 26.

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.
