Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 11. August 12, 1954
This year's team is the strongest (on paper) that Victoria has ever fielded. Its prospects for Tournament appear to be very bright. Our two top players. TONY DARROCH and ALAN ROBINSON, have a large amount of match and tournament experience behind them. Both have played A grade for the last three seasons and there is nothing to pick between them. Tony is a Wellington representative this year for the third season running. He is a left hand attacker who hits hard from both wings. Alan has achieved considerable success Ka tournament play during the last four seasons. He was a finalist, Tournament '53 and won the Wanganal men's singles last year.
Hod Grubi and Roly Woods, the third and fourth members of the team, are by no means over-shadowed They will be hard to beat, either in singles or together in the doubles Both are predominantly defensive players.
The girls. Viv. Fleming and Elizabeth Lesser are expected to win the women's doubles and combined doubles. Both have done very well in the singles in part Tournaments and we hope that they will surpass themselves this year.
