THE MAORIS v. OTAGO.
TO THK KTJITOK. SIR,—AII lovers of football will be greatly disappointed if the Maoris leave here without playing our men again. A better contested or better played gamp than Saturday's we have never had in Dunedin. Is it not possible to have a match on Wednesday afternoon? I understand the steamer will Btay to allow of this being done, and Mr J. R. Scott can be sure of a large attendance. The Dunedin men would be at a disadvantage after playing on Tuesday, but two short spells of half an hour each could be played, and then Tuesday's game would not affect them much, especially as two or three good fresh forwards can be put in without weakening the team. I trust the authorities will see their way to give us another exhibition of a real game.—l am, etc., SrKC'TATOR. Dunedin, August 12.
