Brunswick had first use of agood wicket, scoring 156, which is not an out-of-the-w.ay score for that ground. At one stage of the game it looked as if they would not reach the hundred, but owing to the forceful batting of Norman Bridges, who hit one six anti five fours, the score mounted up until his carrer was cut short by a splendid catch taken by Pat Gleeson one handed.
