Here and There

Here and There

"Burke is a good captain—he doesn't talk too much"—"Evening Post" in discussing University Rugby players.

Playing good football for the seniors is Roy Hansen, who is also one of V.U.C.'s best Tournament oarsmen. A fit, hard-working forward, his chances of gaining representative honours improve with every game.

Stan. [unclear: Braithwaite] is back in Wellington after spending several days in hospital in Christchurch and later at Hanmer. He sustained concussion through colliding with an opponent at the Hockey Tournament a fortnight ago.

Kirkham played particularly well at left full-back when the Senior Reserve hockey team defeated Wesley 2-1 on Saturday. [unclear: Kingi Tahiuri], at right fullback, also played well. With Till, Long and Dr. Campbell as halves, the team is well served in this department, also. Two wins and four losses is the record to date. It seems likely that the seniors, who lost to Huia 3-6, will be relegated to the Second Division at the end of the round.

[unclear: Gu[gap — reason: illegible]"Blise] is another hockey player recovering from injuries. A cheekbone was fractured in a game about a month ago. Guy plays for Training College and in view of the risk of another knock and possible serious consequences, may not turn out again this season.
