On Saturday Wairewa met TeKofcahitanga in tbe second round of tbe FJag matches, The ground was not in very good condition owing to the wet weather the day before, which made it very slippery, and consequently it was difficult to keep one's feet when trying to dodge. Neither side had a strong team out, TeKotabitanga being the worse off of the two, being only able to muster fourteen players. <

Wairewa kicked off, playing down the field, and* play was taken to Te Kotabitanga's twenty five. However, the TeKotahitanga forwards made a rash taking the ball down to Wai rewa's twenty five, where H. Karetai getting tbe ball, made a good run and crossed. J. Karetai, however, failed to convert. Play was then confined to the middle of tbe ground for some time, when the Wairewa forwards worked the ball down towards Te Ko tahitanga's twenty five, where Hemingway, getting the ball, made a short run and dropped a goal. TeKotahitango backs made several good passing rushes, showing good combination, They, however, did not manage to cross, and on half time being called the score stood—Wairewa 4, Te Kotahitanga 3. On play being resumed, Wairewa kept TeKotahitanga on the defensive, tbe latter having to force twice. Te Kotahitanga forwards then made a rush, carrying the play into the Wairewa twenty-five. Wairewa, however, gradually brought the play back, putting Te Kotahitanga on the defensive, where S. Pepper, getting the ball, slipped across tbe line. C. Reed, however, failed to convert. Just after this Hawke hurt his ankle and had to

reiire, G. Wright taking bis place. Te EbtahifcaDga then made another forward move, and getting the ball out to the backs did good passing, bringing the ball down to Wairewa twenty five where more good play by tbe backs ended in Kini crossing tbe

line. T. Skipper converted. Wairewa made several forward rushes', but never managed to get much over the halfway line. On time beirg called the score was—TeKotahitanga 8, Wairewa 7. Id was undoubtedly owing to the combination and good play of the Te Kotahitanga backs that although -they were the weaker team of the two they were able to score a victory.
