The Spike or Victoria College Review, June 1903

First Team

First Team.

V.C. v. Old Boys II. Lost, 11—3. College played a hard though disorganised game. Lack of practice and training told its tale, but the game was not without promise. Ostler scored a well-earned try.

V.C. v. Petone II, Lost, 17—0. The forwards lacked dash, and the three-quarter line, which suffered from the loss of two men of the previous Saturday, did not get together.

V.C. v. Wellington II. Lost, 13—0. A keenly contested game. Eight points were scored in the last few minutes; otherwise the game was even. The forwards got more work in, but the back line had no defence. G. Bogle at half-back played a sound game.

V.C. v. Southern I. Lost, 6—0. College played a hard defensive game, in which Hay, Bogle, and Taylor did excellent work.
