VALLEY DEFEATS WAIKATO WAIHI PLAYERS DO WELL MATCHES FOR NEXT SATURDAY

In its report on the Thames Valley-Waikato Rugby match at Hamilton last Saturday the “Waikato Times” makes the following comments: “In outplaying Waikato to the tune of 17 points to nil the Thames Valley representatives created the major surprise of the Rugby season in Hamilton. Thames Valley established an all-round superiority and its victory was well merited. The listless showing of the Waikato team came as a disappointment to many Rugby followers. Waikato’s meritorious draw with Taranaki only a fortnight ago was encouraging and generally it was expected that although the side differed in a few instances from that of the New Plymouth game it would account for Thames Valley.

The visiting team was clearly superior and the 17 points margin a good indication of the run of the play. Thames Valley’s players may not have had much representative experience, but they were fit, keen and with youth on their side they should do well in future seasons. In the last 20 minutes or so they were right on top and on the comparatively few occasions on which Waikato launched promising movements it was not uncommon for Thames Valley to conand to good effect. The five-eighths, the scene of the play to the other end of the field.

Thames Valley’s backs showed a good combination. They were enterprising and threw the ball about attractively and to good effect. The five-eighths J. Woodland and J. Mitchell, were particularly impressive, playing clean games and imparting considerable thrust to the attack. Woodland, who captained the team, once inaugurated a very dangerous movement when after receiving following a scrum and making a good run, he inpassed to breakaway forward Moses the movement almost resulting in a try. Mitchell thrilled the crowd when he carved a way through most of the Waikato team 19 minutes after the start, Bremer ending his efforts with a solid tackle. Mitchell’s elusive qualities were again evident when he paved the way for the last try.

Nevin, a solidly built forward from Paeroa, was the pick of the Thames Valley pack. N.McMasters (Katikati), a member of the front row, chased the ball tirelessly throughout and deserved his two tries. Moses and Cornes (Waihi) were always in the picture.

For Thames Valley
N. McMaster (Katikati2, R. Otter (Waitakaruru), and D. Spiers tries.
R Hayward (Ngatea) 1 conversion and 1 penalty.
