TO THH EDITOR. Silt,—l notice by your issue of last eight that the Otago Rugby Union have arranged a trial match for Saturday next. How is this ? One of the inter-club matches (Taieri v. Kaikorai) that has been most looked forward to was arranged for that day, and I can safely say that lovers of football looked to this match with far more interest than some of the interprovincial fixturep. It cannot possibly bo that the Match Committee require more knowledge of the players than they have already acquired. Surely they do not want to find out if Keogh is worthy of a place in the team. I have heard it whispered that it is simply a matter of gate money, but this I do not for a moment believe, and I am sure it only wants to be pointed out to the Rugby Union officials that lovers of football will be thoroughly disappointedifwhatlrnaycallone of the most interesting fixtures of the season is prevented from taking place by what the Selection Committee themselves must look on as quite an unnecessary test as to who should be our representatives in the forthcoming interprovincial matches.—l am, etc., ENTHUSIAST. Dnncditi, August 21.
