Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 9. June 7, 1939
Mr. Jim Parker has put in a lot of valuable time coaching the side and there is no doubt that his work is making a great difference in the play of the team. It is to be regretted that the vital weakness in the five- eighths has caused the results to appear less favourable than they deserve to be.
Members of the side who gained places in the North island University team were Burke. Meads, McNicol and Hansen—forwards; and Rae and Kissel—backs. They are to be congratulated. Eastwood, the Victorian wing, was not available.
