[?] [?] (By 'Ex-Interationai') The Auburn and Corrimal Soccer clash at Cor rimal on Saturday should prove a keen match. Corrimal, like all teams, has been going through a lean I period, but special attention to their half-back line would go a long way towards solving their weakness.. . . The forwards cannot function without proper support- from the 1 middle trio. : J. Campbell is the ideal right half, but in recent matches has been played . as right-fullback, which ?' has caused a weakness which did not formerly exist : when Campbell was playing in j the halves. j V. lvlann should again be I played as fullback. This would j give the necessary cover sup- j port so badly heeded for goalie j J. Wright. R. Bignall, as centre-half, is a great asset to his vanguard. Corrimal has the forwards to win points, as such players as T. Willoughby, M. Behan, E. Rowles and D. James blend to gether to such perfection as to trouble any defence. Auburn has a seven-point ad vantage in the League compet...
