Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 25, No. 7. 1962.

[introduction]

For a team that started as a beer-and-biscuits social outing about ten years ago, the Weir House Rugby XV has scaled the I heights. The halcyon days of flagons broken out at half-time, have been replaced by regular practices twice weekly and a commendable record in recent years. Last year the team tied first, equal with Hutt for the Junior Second championship, incidentally scoring more championship points than any other Varsity team. John Armstrong and Barry Finch, this year's captain and vice-captain were selected for the Junior representative team.

This year the team started well, winning its first three games comfortably, before dropping its first two points last Saturday. Two Weir Old Boys' teams have been formed, both playing in the Junior Third Grade, and these two stick more closely to the old format of "relaxed" training.

Lloyd Clarke and Jock Donovan are both playing senior football for Varsity this year. Jock took the place of Weir Old Boy the redoubtable Neil Wolfe.
