DIFFERENCES IN THE METHOD OF PLAYING. [press association.] (Received Juno 16, 10.5 a.m.) / Sydney, This Day. The Rev. R. Mullineux, manager of the English football team which is now on tour in the colonies, has been interviewed in roferenco to his observations of the colonial game. / Mr. Mullineux said ho had discovered that tho Australian Rugby game differs on several points from the game played in England. There the players are not allowed to take the ball from a man when he is down. In kicking for goal a man is not allowed in England to take tho ball "out to place. Another point is that when a man is injured they never replace him, but take the injuries as the fortunes of tho game and play shorthanded. Mr. Mullineux .hopes to havo an understanding on these points before his team plays in Sydney.
