The Committee of the O.R.F.U. met last night, when there were present—Dr Coughtrey (president), Messrs R. Chisholm (vicepresident), Martin, Morrison, Waters, Milne, Chapman, and the hon. secretary. The hon. secretary of the Canterbury Union wrote enclosing copies of the resolutions passed by them in reference to the disqualification of R. Taiaroa and W. Wynyard. It was unanimously resolved: “ That this Union support the action of the Canterbury Rugby Union with reference to the suspension of R. Taiaroa and W. Wynyard, and that these players be suspended during the present season from playing in the district of the Otago Rugby Union.” The secretary was instructed to communicate the above resolution to the Canterbury Union, and inform them that R. Taiaroa is not residing in Otago at present. The secretary was further instructed to send a copy of the resolution to the Auckland Union.

A Wellington telegram states that “ the W.R.U. had under consideration yesterday evening the suspension of Wynyard and Taiaroa by the Canterbury Union. It was decided that in the absence of any direction from the English Union no action be taken.” There is evidently some mistake in the above paragraph, as the English Union know nothing whatever about the facts. Perhaps the telegram refers to the absence of any direction contained in the rules of the English Union, but the wording of the message certainly does not give one that impression.
