The Star Performers

The Star Performers.

A feature of the Dannevirke event (and a great surprise incidentally) was the defeat of Clem Hawke by John Eccles. It was some compensation for Hawke to be a fifth of a second behind Eccles.

Hawke was frankly disappointing in the Dorne Cup Race. Hawke knows how to run all right, but when Hutt Valley's Taylor applied the pressure there wasn't quite the snap about the Varsity man's work that might have been expected.

Taylor beat Hawke by 130 yards, but Hawke's performance was conceivably affected by the appalling conditions.

Hawke shaped incomparably better, however, in the first lap of the Wellington-Masterton Relay earlier in the season.
