Sir,—Last week I referred to the unfair action of the referees. This week I have great pleasure in bearing out that for fairness and integrity of a referee's conduct it was witnessed at Tahuna Park, where a most fair game was played, and the referee gave great satisfaction. This is as it should be if we want good sport. I wish I could say that I was pleased with the Blues' conduct at play. We expect when we hear of them coming from the University to see gentlemanly conduit; unfortunately it was not so with one or two, who, losing their tempers, showed very rough play. Harris (of the Monte's) had to retire through, no doubt, an accident; but the young man who caught Stenhouse by the arm and swung him round in such a ruffianly manner should certainly be asked to play more carof ally, or else leave the Club. A few of us present remarked how his temper got the better of him several times during the game. Were it not for that, and the tendency of the Blues to hold on to the ball too long, the game was a very pleasant one.—l am, etc., Footballer. Dunedin, May 28.
