Water polo took up the major part of the weekend's programme since two full rounds were held for the first time. This step proved to be quite successful and very popular with competitors. Canterbury proved to be the strongest side overall and went through without a loss. Their closest games came from Victoria who fought a pitched battle for second place with Otago. They lost the first game 6-5 and drew the second 3 all. Massey end Auckland were not generally in the seme class as the other three. Star player of the tournament was the Victoria centre forward Barry Brittena current N.Z. Representative - who was unfortunately unavailable for the North Island or N.Z.U. teems. Other Victoria players to shine were N.Z. trialist Robert Borgies end Tournament Controller Warwyck Dewe who both were selected for North Island Universities end N.Z. Universities. Other players to make the North Island teem were Mike McKinley end Paul Kent. Overall a successful end enjoyable tournament.
