BOWRAL V. MOSS VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 15 July 1924

BOWRAL V. MOSS VALE. The large attendance at Centen nial Park, Bowral, on Saturday, ex pecting to see a good game between Bowral ?jind Mosij Vale were in no way disappointed. Right from the jump, it was fast, exciting and bril liant, with that short, nippy, passing which enthusiasts and followers en joy. Besides, it was vigorously con tested to the end, and the players on both sides had had quite enough by the time the final whistle sounded. The home team obtained a creditable win by 7 points to nil. Moss Vale defended the western touch line, and the kick-off sent the oval out half way. From the serum which soon followed Bowral emerged, but a good kick by Moss Vale's full back trans ferred the scene of operations to mid field again. From this position Moss Vale fought their -way onward, and eventually booted over the line, and the race for supremacy ended in O'Brien forcing. . Again in play the visitors appeared to be forcing thp game, and came to the Bowral end; this time their ove...

BARGO V. ROBERTSON. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 15 July 1924

BARGO V. ROBERTSON. j This was a hard-fought contest, Robertson winning by the very nar row margin of 2 to nil. Early in the game Murray piloted a penalty kick over the bar. Apparently both teams had decided on similar tactics, nair;ly, smothering the ball in close in play, consequently mere was very little brightness in the game from the spectators' point of view. To wards the end of the game Robert son had Bargo acting on the de fensive . most of 'the time, but were unable to hreak through. McBarron did very good work as full back for thc home team, but Jager's line kick ing for Bargo was the best seen here for a long time. The referee was Mr. Whitbread, of Sydney.

BOWRAL V. ROBERTSON. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 15 July 1924

BOWRAL V*. ROBERTSON. This match resulted in a win for Robertson by 4 points to nil. At the interval no score had been registered. It was early in the second half that Robertson began to assert itself, and kept up a continual pressure, with an occasional splash inter spersed by Bowral. From a free kick H. Hanrahan kicked a penalty goal, and later on repeated this perform ance. Ivison, for Bowral, at one stage appeared to score, but tfce re feree ordered a scrum, .from which Bowral 'secured, but spoilt a golden opportunity by kicking the oval over the line, mnking it an easy matter for Robertson to force. Later on Ray Armstrong got over the line, but before lie could ground the oval it was knocked out of his arms. On the play the better team won a game which, had the locals put a little more ginger into it, would have been a very interesting one. A lesson that a good many Bowral players could learn is low tackling. Mr. N. Browne, of Moss Vale, refcrecd.

OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS. MITTAGONG SPORTS GROUND. The Editor, The Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 15 July 1924

OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS. I MITTAGONG SPORTS GROUND. The Editor, The Mail. Sir, — I consider it my duty to place before the ratepayers of Mitta gong, through your paper, a rather serious matter, as it affects the sports ground and golf links, and also the welfare of the municipality, j A largely signed petition by rate payers practically oDjeccs to tne bor rowing of £600 for the completion of the gQlf links, which would mean that the various proposals which are in hand and so far advanced would have to be abandoned, and all through the short-sightedness of the petitioners. If they had endeavored in the first place to stop the council from borrowing the £1000 it would have been an honest proposition, and no one could have complained, but having raised the £1000 and advanced' with two-thirds or more of the ne cessary improvements, we find an at tempt to block any further progress towards the completion of the work. If .the anti-progress party would come along with its followers and as sis...

Facts and figures given tell their wttii |iioiii awry, ana compnrisuno j made will surprise the thoughtful reader who has not previously ad- ] dressed himself to, this vital subject. Tfite paper asserts that by good roads alone will the existing-iurden of non-paying lines be lightened upd vast .tracts of potentially rich coun try be opened up for profitable set tlement. 'The capital invested in nonpay ing lines open to traffic was increased to the extent of £1,067,439 during the year, and now stands at £20,' 111,780.
