The receipts at Saturday’s match ut Auckland amounted to L 276. After paying expenses L2OO will remain to be divided amongst the Natives and the local union, Mr Hutchinson, captain of the Union Second, writes: —“ Permit me to correct an error which appeared in. the report of the match Pirates v. Union Second. It is stated in the report that the referee had blown his whistle previous to the ball being touched down. Such is not the case. The ball had been on the ground fully ton seconds before the whistle sounded, and neither umpire had his flag up. The try was allowed by both.”
