Commu nist advance in the Umsong chungju area, intended for a flank attack on American forces south of Chqrian. ' ? The South Koreans an...

Combination Beat Corrimal [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 10 July 1950

Corrimal could not blend with [the same cohesion as their op ponents. Their direction was often bad, and kicks went straight to the opposition. Auburn forwards were on top from the start and outside-right J. Hodge was given ( a feast of the ball. He sent over some fine, crosses to his insidemen which caused embarrassment to the Corrimal defence. Corrimal halves did not func tion properly, with the result that their forwards were easy prey to the Auburn defence. Until the selectors realise that good half-backs are essential no points will come Corrimal's way. Advancing from the kick-off, Auburn stormed Corrimal's goal. J.
