Rugby Politics

Sirs,—I notice with some amusement that certain members of the NZUSA executive are likely to contravene the NZUSA constitution.

There have been rumours floating around that NZUSA executive is going to try to pressure the New Zealand Universities rugby team in regard to the Springboks.

I draw the executive's attention to s.3 of the NZUSA constitution, which defines the objects of NZUSA. s3(d) reads "... to encourage and assist in the promotion of sport within the universities of New Zealand."

Later, s.10 (d) provides "... provided always that if any act, order, appointment, or anything whatsoever done or made by the executive is repugnant to this constitution, such act. order, appointment, or other thing shall be null and void."
