RESERVE GRADE [Newspaper Article] — Western Star — 10 May 1949

RESERVE GRADE (By J. Moynihan) In the Reserve Grade match, Wat tles proved too good for Wallabies Reserves, and won at 19-3, scoring three ties. Fulwood proved very elusive and made some very, pood runs but was Inclined to hang on to the ball too long. We may hear more of this player later on. It Is a shame Indeed to see teams at this time of the season take the field with or or two men short . I am against the practice now. of clubs sending out a man to play two matches In the one afternoon. If possible the League and Parents should stop this sort of thing. ■Referee was Mr. Len Woodcock. The Wattles Juniors after leading 2 nil at half time were not impres sive to defeat their rivals Cities at 5 nil at the flnal bell. Cities had only 11 men for the full session. I congratulate every one of these Citlns Juniors. They put up a very cood showing. Thr referee ill this match was Mr "Blue" Donnelly.
