Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 5. 1967.
Mr. I. H. Boyd. Student Union Managing - Secretary, and Sports administrator at both Victoria and NZU level: "I do not see why graduates should not be allowed to continue playing for the University Rugby Club. That is the practice in the other university clubs such as Hockey. Cricket and Athletics. I do feel, however, that this is a matter which the Rugby Club could, and should, decide for themselves."
Mr.D. B. Barrowman. VUW Rugby Club Club-Captain, told Salient "on several counts the editorial in the last issue of Salient was misleading. It would have been nearer the truth if it had stated that only two or three senior A players were not at present studying at Victoria. Secondly, Otago University do play graduates. A player is allowed to continue playing for his club in the year following his graduation. It should also be realised that the club receives much support from the Medical School to which a student is attached for six or so years.
