Morton played a game out of the box, finding the line with some great kicks. • Skerten, at ; half-back . never knows,when he is beaten, and the hard knocks he receives does not deter him at least. Whiteman, Gorrie, Francis and Wyeth were again a splendid quartet, but they certainly missed McNeil this week. Over 20 free kicks were mark- ed up against the local boys dur- ing the match. Now then Coach Paul, that has to be rectified. St. Johnston was on the side line this week. What happened- Harry, miss practice ?
