Retirement of Coach
At the AGM of the Rugby Club regret was expressed at the temporary retirement of Mr. R. B. Burke as coach of the Senior team and the meeting recorded a vote of appreciation from the club for the work which Mr. Burke has done for the last six years.
Our congratulations go to I. Lissi-enko of the VUC Athletic Club for his fine performance in taking second place in the discus throw at the New Zealand Championships at Auckland.
Also in the athletic world we congratulate Clem Hawke on his recent appointment as manager of the Wellington representatives at the N.Z. Junior and Women's Championships, a position which, we hear, he filled in his usual capable way.
VUC Rugby Club members will be pleased to note that their committee has now, after much negotiation, actually got the club tie in the process of manufacture and it is hoped it will be available in the next few weeks.
Selection of Nzu Rugby Teams
Mr Jeff's, the Rugby Clubs delegate to the NZURFC. pointed out to his AGM that it had been a number of years since the club had been represented on the Selection Committee for NZU teams. Acting on his suggestion the club members present resolved: "That it be a recommendation to the incoming committee that they recommend to the VUC delegate on the NZURFC the appointment of a NZU selector from the club."
