Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 9. June 7, 1939
Rugby — Form Reviewed
After a good opening against Eastbourne and hard and close game against Marist, who have remained undefeated to date, the University side slumped against Poneke, giving on that occasion one of their worst exhibitions for years. This game was a shocking display of football and it was therefore pleasing to see an improvement shown in the subsequent games against Massey College. Wellington and Athletic. On the games played it call be said without fear or contradiction that the Varsity fifteen possesses one of the best packs or forwards that the Club has bad for several years. They are virile and dashing in the loose and, unlike most Varsity packs, they tackle well.
