SUGGESTED TEAM FOR ENGLAND.
tPEB PBBBS ASSOCIATION.! Wanganui, April 26. Advices received here from England by the last mail state that the Northern Union of Rugby Clubs has received a communication suggesting that New Zealand should send a team home next year to play clubs under the Northern Union rules. The leading clubs have been asked what support can be promised. The London Daily Telegraph, commenting on the proposal, states that replies have not yet been sent, but leading clubs favour the project and it is regarded as certain that a New Zealand team will visit England next season. Wellington, April 26. With reference to a telegram from Wanganui that a team of Rugby footballers is likely to visit England next season to compete against the Northern Union Rugby clubs there, Mr E. Wylie, secretary of the New Zealand Rugby Union states: "I have had no official communication from the Northern Unions on the subject of visiting them. As we subscribe to the English Rugby Union (strictly amateur) it is impossible for any New Zealand players to play against the Northern Union men without coming under the ban of our professional laws (meaning life disqualification). Any tour arranged must be purely on professional lines, and would not, I feel sure, have the sanction of the New Zealand Union." He added that no doubt if a team goes Home it will be a private venture or a speculation.
