DETERMINED BID FOR VICTORY [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 10 May 1950
DETERMINED BID FOR VICTORY A typical second half rally by Parramatta almost gained it vic tory in the match against St. George, at Kogarah Oval, on Sat urday. However, St. George withstood the attack, and late tries by Mc Ritchie and Pidding clinched a 32-21 victory. The absence of full-back Colin Schomberg handicapped Parra matta. Rolf Trudgett was in top form and scored three excellent tries. It is pleasing to see this player regain form. Saturday's display should make him confident for future matches. ,Half-back Lance Thompson was injured by a crushing tackle from McRitchie. He played most of the second half in a daze. Centre Don Graham was the only Parramatta man to gain a place in a City team for the annual City-Country fixture at Sydney Cricket Ground on Sat urday. Graham will lead the City II team.
