In this he was partnered by A. Mahon for a first wicket stand of 236. This provided a solid basis for the final total of 308 for 1 declared.

Bill Clarke. better known for Rugby [unclear: ability]. capture 5 wickets for 11 in a third grade match lost Saturday.

R. Brine, who played for the Second Grade team in the pre-Christmas period has been chosen for the North Island Minor Associations' team, participating in the trials for the New Zealand team touring South Africa next season. His slow medium off-spinner proved too much for many of the batsmen in the colts' tourney at New Plymouth.

Owen Kimberly. who has been among the most consistent batsmen for the Second Grade XI scored a lively century against Wellington. One hundred and twenty-five runs in 115 minutes is certainly interesting cricket.
