'Varsity V. Wellington

'Varsity V. Wellington.

Wellington met 'Varsity at Prince of Wales Park last Saturday for the first game in the second round of the Senior A Second Division Championship. Wellington being one of the leaders in Senior B at the end of the first round, were promoted to Senior A Second Division, and justified their promotion by defeating 'Varsity by 14-6.

The match started with some fast rushes, and the defence on both sides was sound until Wild snapped up a misjudged clearing kick and handed on to Overton, who ran round to score wide out. The kick failed.

'Varsity 3, Wellington 0.

A short while later 'Varsity improved the score when Tricklebank found the uprights form a difficult penalty kick.

'Varsity 6, Wellington 0.

The 'Varsity backs, though not getting their share of the ball from the scrums, were now moving brightly and with co-ordination. However, Wellington's backs were standing right up to their men and passing movements did not gain much ground.
