As It was. beaten j for possession nine times out of ten, their backs always had to make their own openings, and It was remarkable how well they accom plished this. There was an encouraging start to the game, ns after three minutes' play good footwork by the Services forwards led up to the first try. Usher was the actual scorrr, but half the side had a share In the movement. Peet, however, failed to convert. The 'Springboks' were not long tn equalising, as G.
