Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 9. June 7, 1939
Burke the hooker has been showing good form and played his best game against Athletic. His hooking, is up to his own high standard. Meads and McNicol have been very solid and most consistent. Their selection for the North Island Varsity side is well deserved. Hansen is another who has maintained a high standard and McVeagh has confirmed opinions formed of him in the opening match. He is heady and solid, the type that would do well in a representative side. Eade seems to have struck form now and his game against Wellington was splendid. The two Shannons have been showing dash and are very keen.
