R. Kerr: Goalie a new face at Tournament. With our [unclear: haddin] faith in the team we don't think that he will have much to do Better take a couple of good novels with you, Robin.

E. Jackson: Full-back [unclear: ve-]captain although playing regularly for the club seniors for some time Eric hasn't been to Tournament since 1951. when he made the N.ZU team. On current form he has every chance of repeating this [unclear: beacuse] this vear.

C Brinsley: Full-back despite all efforts by the selectors Clive has made it again, and for the fifth time will be able to inspire the team with his mis-trapping, fty-hitting and slowness to the ball

K. Mohammed: Full-back or hall-back playing in his second Tournament Kelly should be a decided asset to the team On the field he is one of those unspectacular but highly reliable types who do the work of three ordinary men.

J. F. Mann: Half-back (captain), the daddy of the team Jack has a distinguished record on the hockey world An N.Z.U player vet and N.Z.C Blue numerous times and a Canterbury rep and captain for several seasons, also South Island captain He will have a hard time controlling the boys, but he should maintain his habit of getting into the N.Z.U team

P. Vautier: Half-back this will be Pete's second Winter Tournament, as he was once more successful in getting past the selectors Should make his presence felt in Wellington.

A. Shaw: Half-back another first-timer at Tournament. Plays variously at right-inside and right-half thereby disconcerting his opponents his team-mates, the umpires and the onlookers Can be relied upon to do his share of work.

D. King: Wing forward had no trouble in making the team this year as he is one of the [unclear: selecto] Don will be playing in his four Tournament so opposing player are warned to beware.

B. Bilham: Inside fonvard—has represented C.U.C for the last two years and was a reserve for last year's N.Z.U. team. Brian is playing as well as ever now and will be a dangerous man at left inside

G. Latimer: Inside-forward—Graeme first played for C.U.C in 1951 and we have been unable to got rid of him ever since. He must be approaching his very best form as he scored his first goal of the season last week, congratulations. Graeme!

P. Cotton: Centre-forward—after playing the last few seasons for Woolston Pete has finally seen the light and joined up with a docent club again. This will be his first page 7 Tournament since 1950, and he is our secret weapon. On the field he is only slightly less deadly than an Atom bomb. Has been a Canterbury representative from time to time.

W. Haskell: Inside-forward—still another Tournament first-timer, he is expected to be one of our star players. He has been playing consistently well for the seniors this season.

I. McDougall: Inside-forward—our fifth Tournament newcomer. He has been playing it steady game in the senior reserve team and he should acquit himself well in Wellington.
