Men's Hockey

Men's Hockey.

We admit quite frankly that the mode of selection adopted with regared to the Senior Hockey reps. baffles us completely. There are seven teams in the competition from three of whom the rep. team was drawn-seven players from one, four from another, and one from the third. That one team, which has been defeated once and held to a draw, should possess seven members of rep. standard and four of its opponents none, seems rather ridiculous.

Although the First Eleven is still lying fifth in the Senior competition it is always a formidable combination and can hold its own against any team in the competition. Surely some of its players are worthy of rep. honours! We think so. Having won the Seddon Stick, it is virtually the champion University hockey team of New Zealand. Its brother clubs get members into their rep. teams, but V.U.C. does not. Again, we had two members in the N.Z.U. team which met and defeated the Wellington representatives on the King's Birthday.

The position is absurd and some revision of selection methods is obviously necessary.
