Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 5. 1967.


There seems to be a growing resentment within some quarters of the university at the apparent non-restrictive membership of the University Rugby Club.

Following an editorial opinion in the last issue of this paper, I made some inquiries into the situation and found that there is a constitutional restriction on those wishing to play for the club.

The effects of this restriction is that membership is open only to those who do or have attended a university and who are or have been members of a Students Association. Those who are not current members of the Victoria Students Association are required to pay to the club a subscription of £1/1/-. With fourteen university teams entered in the Wellington competition it has only been necessary this year to collect a total of £15/15/- in subscription money from players.
