FOOTBALL.

THE OTAGO REPRESENTATIVE TEAM will probably be picked this evening. It is not expected that any important change will be made in the personnel of the team, although Esquilant (Zingari-Richmond) and Matheson (Taieri) will very likely be in eluded in the forwards. Thomas has not proved a success at three-quarter, and he will doubtless be placed in his old position as full-back. The three-quarters, with the exception of a wing man, are certain to be thesameas played against Auckland. Should Davie be excluded, a number favor Keogh being played at three-quarter, with Restieaux and Owen as halves; while others think that three halves should be played, Lynch, Lang, and Noel at three-quarter, with Restieaux, Keogh, and Owen as halves. We certainly want a fast man to watch Surman, who is said to be the best back in the Canterbury team. He showed that he possessed speed when the Merivale team visited us, and is a dangerous man in every respect. The forwards who find most favor with footballers are—Torrance, Tattersall, Montgomery, Esquilant, Matheson, Duncan, Isaacs, M'Farlane, Stephenson, Rallingshaw, and Sonntag, and a very good team could be picked from the players mentioned above.
