Results of Matches.

v. Wellington. Lost 16-8. The Wellington forwards worked well together. In the second spell we livened up and penned Wellington down on their line; but the defence of their backs was too good. Finally Bram well marked and Beard converted. Later a passing bout resulted in Churchill scoring for 'Varsity. Beard converted.

v. Petone. Lost 22-10. A fast but somewhat ragged game. Both sides scored alternately, and right up to the whistle it was anybody's game. Our men were in the aggregate very much smaller than the Petoneites. Riley at fullback played very well. O'Sullivan's speed came in useful when he scored a good try from a pass near his own 25-line.

v. Poneke. Lost 41-6. Poneke's backs too good. Our team is too young for tried opponents. Determined efforts by the forwards resulted in O'Sullivan scoring between the posts. No goal! Beard secured from the kick-out, and ran down the line and scored. He failed with the kick.
