Several friends will accompany the Auckland representatives on their Southern tour, going down on the same footing as the members of the team, except that they pay their own expenses. Mr J. D. Clayton, treasurer of the A.R.F.U., accompanies the team as manager. THE OTAGO REPRESENTATIVES. The following team has been chosen by the Committee of the O.R.P.U. to represent Otago in the match against Southland, whioh will be played at the Carisbrook ground next Saturday : Pull-back—Thomas (Union). Three-quarters.— Noel(Alhamtra),Lynoh(Dunedln)' and Davie (Kaikorai). Halves. —Keogh (Kaikorai) and Restleiux (Alhambra). Forwards. Torrance (captain) and J. Duncan (Kaikorai), Isaacs (Monteoillo), Ralllneshaw (Zing&rlRichmond), Tatteraall and M'Rirlane (Union), Montgomery (High School), Sonntag and Stephenson (BtincJin), The team is considered a fairly strong one, the backs especially being fast and reliable men. Noel thoroughly deserves his place in the team, having improved considerably in his style of play. He tackles much better than formerly, although there is still room for improvement, punts fairly well, and possesses a rare turn of speed. Davie is a fast and strong player, and should give his opponents some trouble. The halves Keogh and Restieaux could not be improved on, the Alhambra player being a sterling worker. The new forward is Rallingshaw (Zingari-Richmond Club), and he is about as good a man as could be picked to fill Morris's place. Strong and fast, he can do good work in the loose, while he does not shirk scrum work. He plays with judgment, and can work the ball well in a dribbling rush. The remaining forwards have already played for their province this season, so it is unnecessary to describe their style of play. TUB SOUTHLAND REPRESENTATIVES. The Southland team is constituted as follows ; Full-back.—H Rodgere. Three qoartirs. Ekensteen, De Joux, and Wallis. Halves.—Cuff and Tapper. Forwards.—A. Galbmlth, Hudson, Jenkins, Mentlplay, Murphy, R. and N. M'Oroble, Tfeseder, and Twemlow. Reserves.—Jarvis and Dalton.
