Vic's reps who finishd second at Dunedin last year did not perform so well this year and could only manage fourth placing behind Otago, Canterbury and Auckland.
The absence of some members through work commitments, the slow recovery of others from attacks of the "bot" and the attractions of Arts Festival meant that Vic could not field its best team.
