Tatong-Thoona League &nbsp; ALL BLACKS EASY WIN OVER THOONA The All Blacks had a. very com- &nbsp; fortable win over Thoona on the Friendly Societies ground on Satur- day.It was owing to their superi- &nbsp; ority in every department of the game that made victory easy. By the ab- sence of several of their prominent players, Thoona's task proved a hopeless one. By good team work All Blacks gained a big lead in the first half of the game, and as the match progressed they displayed greater brilliancy and ran out the winners by a big majority, All Blacks dis- played better form than on many previous occasions and if they are able to maintain such form In the final stages, they should have no dif- ficulty in winning the premiership. &nbsp; The teams were:- &nbsp; &nbsp; All Blacks-W.
