He is ?still troubled by a knee injury. Brothers have been 'just ! beaten' in almost every game '.his season, but tomorrow they iseem certain to defeat Northern j Suburbs, the only team in the competition still to record a vic tory. . ' ? Norths are certain to put up a battle, nonetheless. C.B.C. have made two changes. Bob Robertson replaces Nev. Murphy; 'Tiger' Oliver goes in in place of George Denton. ? Both these lads have come up from the lower grade for to morrow's game. Norths suffered a terrific hid ing against Wests last match, but half their team was unable to reach the ground owing to the washaways on the roads and railways.
