The Association have again adopted the same methods of business as ensured sui-h a highly successful season last year, and have formed various sub-commit- . tics, while with Mr. Tattley as secretary, no stone will be left unturned to ■ ensure success. I have to tender my congratulations i to Messrs. Denuison aud Osborne, of the ' ; Referees' Association, who have joined ithe ranks of the Benedicts. | The Referees' Association have suffer- • i ed a loss by the removal to Taranaki of Mr. D. L. Goldwater, and players will no doubt miss bis valuable painstaking efforts. All the clubs have held their meetings, 1 and will be out at Remuera practising in earnest next Saturday week. ' University contemplate erecting their - dressing shed during the Easter week. ' Auckland intend enlarging their shed, 1 and will find accommodation for the ! newlv-formcd Grafton Club under their . roof.*

The Grafton Club, which consists mostly of members of the Auckland B team, and who have played in the senior ranks for the past four seasons, intend placing a team in the senior competition, and with several promising recruits, should render an excellent account of themselves.

United will place a strong eleven in the field to battle for senior championship honours.

Several new members of note have signified their intention of throwing in their lot with the club. Swinburne, from Hnwera, and I hear one of the Wellington rep. halves, will find a place in hack division, and Tlesketh. the crark College Rifle forward, transfers to the club.

The Auckland A team, with a couple of exceptions, will be practically the same as last year. They have lost Spears, and Brooke Smith will not be available every Saturday.

Several new clubs have been formed besides the Grafton. St. Mary's and Epiphany have both applied for affiliation. There will in all probability be five teams competing for the Thames' championship this year. Several ex-rep. footballers have decided to take up the game in the mining town.
