NORTH-SOUTH MATCH The charges announced at the meeting of the Auckland Ilugby Union this week for the North and South Island match, to be played at Eden Park on August 25, have caused considerable comment. A correspondent writes as follows: — As a keen Rugby supporter for the last 20 years and, as the boys say, "married" to the code, I was amazed to read the proposed charges for admission to Eden Park for the North v. South Island match. I am still wondering whether the charges have been approved by the Price Tribunal or are we and the future players, the schoolboys of Auckland, to be made "shareholders" of Eden Park While we supporters are doing our best to further the game as far as our sons and their schoolboy friends are concerned, we are asked to pay 2/6 adults and 1/ for our boys to get on the terraces. If we decide to go in the stand enclosure we have to pay in addition 2/ standing room. or 3/ seated. The latter seats have to be booked. Is this a fair go? The chairman of the Auckland Rucby Union. Mr.- A. A. Baker, pointed out to-day that the admission charges for the inter-Island match were Bet down by the New Zealand Rus;by Unlcn They were the usual scale of fee. , ; irrespective of where the North v. Sou'h match was nlayfi. plthoiiirh the expenses wo\iH be considerably heavier this year on account of having to bring players all the way to Aticklp.nd.
