The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937

Senior "A."

Senior "A."

The past season can be reviewed with a great deal of satisfaction, in spite of the fact that no outstanding honours were obtained. Commendable keenness and well-attended weekly practices, however, resulted in good team play and later in promotion half-way through the season to the First Division. Perhaps the most pleasing feature of the team's play was the fine showing by the forwards. Good scrummaging, combined with Burke's effective hooking, enabled the forwards to more than hold their own in all matches. Blacker proved a good leader, and Eade, Hansen, Meade and Russell all showed to advantage. Wild was the outstanding back and played splendidly right through. Although the team will probably start off next season in the Second Division, there is every prospect that with all of this year's players again available, the 1938 season will find the 1st XV. again firmly established as one of Wellington's strongest Rugby teams.
