Received July 17, 9.56 a.m. Sydney, July 17

The "Herald" says that after previous matches the result came as a great surprise, and everyone was amazod but none more so tban the visitors. The play was never uninteresting and was frequently brilliant and ali agreed that it was a very great match. If there was any advantage at all it waa ■with New Zealand who twice crossed the home line while New South Wales did not cross at all.

Tha " Daily Telegraph " states that the results of the games on the previous Saturday and Wednesday very naturally created an impression that there was only one side in ib but before the match had been in pro» gress many minutes it was realised that the New South Wales men were playing the game of their life-time. The question was whether it would lastj but as the match proceeded it was found to be no spasmodic effort. In a word the New South Wales forwards, fast, dashing, and fearless, played New Zealand at their own game and beat them at it and to them the triumph, for it was a triumph,, was due. When the New Zealanders scored at the finish the New South Wales forwards stood still like graven images, the exasperatinglNew South Wales fashion, whilst Roberts weaved his way in and out among them with his backs following at top speed. It was a brilliant, rush but it was the fault of New South Wales that it succeeded so thoroughly. In the first place Roberts should not have been allowed to make the opening he did and in the second there should have been no difficulty is blocking McGregor.
