Rugby League

A Look to the Future

Where do we go from here? This is the obvious question when one takes a look at the Victoria University League Team. With an ever changing population at the University, the composition of any sport teams creates problems. To actually play in any sport team, a person has to be interested and it is the lack of interest in the game that creates the problem of fielding a league team.

However, over the past three years the Victoria Univeristy Rugby League Team has managed to overcome this problem. With a "hard core" of members who first played in 1973 the club has built up a tremendously successful record. In all of the three years that the club has existed, the team has only lost two of the twenty three games that it has played. These were to:
a.St. George Premiers (26-24) and
b.Auckland Univeristy (at the 1976 tournament 15-9).
It is the first time in three years that Auckland University have beaten Victoria, and they, as a team, play regular club league. An indication of the strength of the 1976 team can perhaps be gauged by the fact that eight of our players made the New Zealand Universities team;
  • namely
  • Waltor Walker
  • Alistair Mc Beth
  • Sakiusa Rabuka
  • Tu Wyllie
  • Taiki Apu
  • Bruce Horsfall
  • Mike Smith
  • Kelly Walker

Also, another of our players, Doug Sleeman, made the North Island Universities but withdrew through injury.

The situation seems good for next year, because the tournament is in Auckland. Most of this year's team is returning next which puts Victoria in good stead in so far as 'experience' goes. So to you interested people who want to enjoy yourselves in the realms of sport and social activities come along and join Rugby League. The team is managed purely on a social basis and is not involved in the local competition. The Vic team usually plays on Sundays against other Universities or against other minor league associations. The major objective of the club is to win at tournament. A notice about Rugby League will appear in the 1977 Student Handbook where contact names and addresses will be given.

There are several people to whom the Vic Team owes many thanks. Firstly, to the boys. He needs no mention and his names is Bud Lisle, the coach. Bud and Ted Campbell (the assistant coach) have put a lot of time and effort into coaching the team. But it is with sad regret that the Vic Team say goodbye to this stalewart of Rugby League. Bud has now moved to Auckland.

Secondly, special thanks must go to Ted Campbell and his wife Rosemary, Taiki Apu, Walton Walker, Tu Wyllie, Whai Dewes and "radio Victoria" disc jockey, Amo, for their tremendous help in the preparation of food and entertainment. And one must not forget the captain, Mike Smith or the President, Martin England.

Finally, the Vic Club is holding a windup social on Friday 8th at the Rugby Club Rooms. A few presentations are to be made, so with your support it could be a good chance to blow your minds before finals.
