Visitors given wet welcome

Visitors given wet welcome

Visitors to Wellington for Easter Tournament were given a wet welcome on Good Friday. It was not long, however, before shirts were off and skirts were up in acknowledgement of the return of weather Wellingtonians are so used to.

Saturday was fine, but the blustery conditions caused the postponement of most of Saturday's yachting. Other sports were not greatly affected by the wind although several times the cricketers lost their bails and times were unable to be considered for records in the sprints at the athletics.

Otago retained the tournament shield, amassing a weekend total of 50 points. Second was Victoria with 40, third Canterbury with 30, Auckland collected 24 points and Massey 6.
