A DISSATISFIED UNION,
Auckland, June 8 The notion of the New Zealand Eugby Union m selecting a coach to accompany the New Zealand team to England, instead of another man as twenty-sixth player, hns not at all been favourably received m Auckland. The Rugby Union, through its management Committee, carried a resolution as follows :—" That the management committee of the Auckland Rugby Union has heard with deep regret that the New Zealand Rugby Union has decided to send acoaoh with the New Zealand football team to Great Britain j this committee is emphatically of opinion that such a step is totally unnecessary, and does not warrant the expenditure involved ;in its opinion the experienced players composing the team are quite capable of coaching themselves, further it considers that the extra cost would be better expended m sending another player."
Another match has yet to be played to complete the first round of the flag competition viz., Southern Cross v. Rakaia. This will ba decided next Thursday, weathei permitting. The draw for the second round will be made next Monday evening.
