Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 10. 1965.
The Victoria Judo team will be chosen from the following:
Warwick White—yellow belt, the only member of the 1964 team, which came second equal at Auckland Tournament. In the deciding match Warwick defeated the reigning green belt champion of Auckland, who was the only member of the NZD team to force a draw with the Auckland black belt team.
Richard Dench—orange belt, and club captain.
Pat Keane—yellow belt.
Peter Hannah—green belt.
Lindsay Vaughan—white belt.
Bruce Furze, graded only this year, has shown great promise and may cause surprises next year. Alan West bury, yellow belt, has been a gain for the club. Peter Cleghorn is another very active member.
The club may have to call upon the services of other members who have not been able to attend regularly.
Last year, Vic's team had two greens and one blue, but this year the team will have only one green belt member.
Reports from other clubs suggest very strong opposition. Canterbury still has the very strong Davis and skilled Painter. Murray Mathieson from Otago is now a brown belt, and Larsen from Massey, who sensationally defeated the NZU champion in one bout is still on the scene.
Morama Sterling, a black belt, has been taking part in hard and regular workouts with the team, which should consequently be very fit.
