Gil.

Tlicrer-were eleven of > the, original wearers of the green plus Taplin '■ (captain-coach)andField. The home team was at full strength and ran up the cricket score of 55 points to 8. When the local lads saw the futility of striving -for success they did not take*, unnecessary risks against their far heftier opponents. The Dunedoo team will return the visit shortly, and in the interim-tlie ."Gil" first will need to train hard in,order to try and cope with the un doubtedly powerful team. There is no doubt under Taplin'.s tuition the Bridge boys have greatly improved, though still rather crude and unortho dox in some respects.
