Thomson, and as a consequence the whole team left the field with him, the Whangarei Hockey Association held an inquiry last night. The player admitted using the language overheard by the umpire, and he and the captain of the Mangapai team, Mr. C. Holland, alleged victimisation of the club by the umpire over a period. This was denied by members of the Umpires'- Association present. The player was suspended for two weeks and the Mangapai team was reprimanded for its action.
