Warbrick coon afterwards got Id, an<* a goal was kicked by Ellison ; and then Keogh got m, and another goal was kicked. Just before the end of ihe spell the Natives again scored a try and another goal resulted, Otago m the first portion of the spoil appeared to be thoroughly demoralised, but warmed to their work, and , during the next ten minutes Montgomery scored a try for Otago, but nothing further resulted, acd immediately afterwards Downos potted a goal amidot great applause. At the end of the spell ths ecores were : Natives, ten points, and Otago four pmti.
