WEST COAST TEAM
MATCH WITH AUCKLAND
Paying its first visit since 1933, the West Coast Rugby League representative team, which will meet Auckland at Park on Saturday, arrived in Auckland this morning. The visitors are reputed to be a speedy, well-balanced combination, and it is anticipated that Auckland will be fully tested. West Coast gave proof of its scoring ability when it defeated Canterbury by (iO points lo 5 last week, and, with one exception, the same team will be fielded against Auckland. Well-known personality in the visiting side is W. Glenn, a solid type of forward, who has" represented New Zealand and the South Island. Glenn is the sole remaining representative of the last West Coast loam to visit Auckland. Included In the visiting thirteen are seven members of the Blackball team, which gave a fine exhibition against Manukau two years ago. The three Mount ford brothers will again be seen in action, and particular interest will centre in the performance of C. Mountford at live eighth. He has built up a splendid reputation in the South Island as an especially fast and clever back. M. Orde, the half-back, has also represented the South Island, and is reported to be a smart, versatile player. The visitors, who trained at Carlaw Park this afternoon, will play South Auckland and possibly Wellington on the return journey.
