A match, under the auspices of the Otago Rugby Union, and for the benefit of Maxwell and Davidson, two disabled players, will take place on the Caledonian Ground to morrow afternoon, a team chosen from the Kaikorai and Pirates Clubs meeting a combined fifteen selected by the Match Com. mittee of the O.R.F.U. The teams will be Kaikorai-Pirates : 'Backs—Matheson, Armit, Wood, Gregg. Duncan, Thomson, Sinclair; forwardr—Ronald, Farquharson, J. Torrance, M‘Leod, Murphy, Priest, Burt, Maclean ; emergencies—Cunningham, Cross, Kingston. Combined Team; Backs—Lawry, Stephenson, Ross, Fell, Mason, M‘Ara* Burgess ; forwards—Hobeon, Given, Munro| Stewart, Rogereou, ■ M‘Farlane (captain), Spence, M'Kewah ; emergencies—Williams, Mackenzie, Olsen, Cavanagh, Gregg. Mr D. Torrance will act as referee. Captains Duncan and Matheson, of the Kaikorai and Pirates Clubs respectively, have spent a goo 1 deal of time in arranging this fixture, and it is to be hoped that the football-loving public will realise the object of the match and turn out in large numbers. The annual match between All Saints’ and St. John’s Clubs will be played on the Asylum Ground to-morrow. Judging by the cheers that were accorded Mr D. Torrance by the Southland and Canterbury teams on leaving Invercargill and on arriving at Dunedin, his refereeing in the Southern city must have given unanimom satisfaction to the players. This is not the first time that a similar compliment has been paid Mr Torrance, and it speaks volumes for hia rulings when he can so earn the confidence of the men under his control. As the football season is now drawing to a close we desire to thank Mrs H. Rose of Carisbrook, Mr Blaney, of the Caledonian Hotel, and Mr Courtis, of the gasworks, for the kind use of their telephones throughout the season. The game between the North End Boating Club and the Otago Rowing Club has been postponed for a week on account of the benefit match to-morrow,
