RANFURLY SHIELD MATCH,
TARANAKI DEFEATS WAIRARAPA. pI B> Telegraph—(-"n-s? Association.) ! STRATFORD, Thursday. Taranaki met Wairarapa to-day on a very wet ground, but notwithstanding this, there was a very line, spectacular game. Taranaki gained the victory by 22 points to 3. This is the seventh consecutive win for Taranaki, and it is somewhat of a coincidence that eleven points were scored in each spell. Rain had fallen for about an hour before the match, and the ground was in a very slippery condition.: The hero of i the game was Coleman, who made most ■of the openings. Young, playing on the ; three-quarter line, scored four tries, and Whittington and Paterson one each. Stohr goaled twice, and Redmond scored the only try for tho visitors, in the second half. The scores do not
seem to guage tho average strength of the teams, as they were the result of brilliant play individually. The visitors obtained the ball more often from the scrum, but did not seem to bo able to get their backs going. Two of the Taranaki playors, Dewar and Young, go to tho front to-morrow. Mr W. "J. Meredith, of Wellington, was the referee.
