The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1913

Third Fifteen

Third Fifteen.

v. Wellington. Lost, 0—32.

No details of this match are forthcoming, but under the circumstances they seem hardly necessary.

v. Petone. Lost, 3—6.

A marked improvement all round, and this against one of the leading teams in the competition, Ellis was our scorer.

v. Berhampore. Lost, 9—24.

The score at half-time was 9—0 in our favour, thanks to Robinson, Tarrant, and Hudson. The final score would therefore seem to call for some explanation, but as we have received none ourselves, we can only leave our readers to conjecture; for our part, suspicion falls on "condition," that old foe of Victoria College teams, or perchance a superabundance of self-satisfaction had something to do with it.

v. Y. M. C. A. Lost, 6—19.

A piece of stop-press news that might as well have been left unrecorded. Rodwell scored a try, and an unknown kinked a penalty goal.
