PONSONBY AGAIN

GALLAHER SHIELD. GRAFTON AND MANUKAU WIN Ponsonby maintained its unbeaten record in the Gallaher Shield competition on Saturday with an impressive win over Otahuhu at Eden Park. Otahuhu fielded a weakened team, but even so Ponsonby clearly indicated that it has probably the best-balanced fifteen in the competition. Fielding a greatly improved team, Grafton created something of a surprise by the manner in which it beat Marist. Manukau made the most of its scoring chances to defeat Navy, while University won by a narrow margin from Grammar Old Boys. Grafton 12, beat Marist 6. Ponsonby 17, beat Otahuhu 8. University 8, beat Grammar 3. Manukau 16, beat Navy 9. Sacred Heart Beaten.—Sacred Heart College first fifteen was defeated for the first time in the secondary school Rugby competition on Saturday, King's College winning by 16 points to 6 at Middlemore. Nothing was at stake as far as the championship was concerned, Sacred Heart having already assured itself of this. Sacred Heart was unable to match King's either in the forwards or backs, the lighter King's pack winning a majority or the scrums and giving the elusive home backs many chances. Sacred Heart led off With a penalty goal by Gardiner, but lost the lead when Gilmour broke through to score and convert the only try of the game. The King's centre three-quarter added three more points before half-time with a penalty goal. After Hing had goaled with a penalty for Sacred Heart in the second spell. King's went on to almost continual attack. Two spectacular field goals put the decision beyond doubt, Caughey putting one over from in front, while Hay kicked a brilliant goal from an angle, nearly 25 yards out. BAY OF PLENTY TEAM O.C.
