The match promises to test the mettle of the tourists, for past teams found Leigh particularly hard to beat, despite the fact that only one Australian team (1908-9) suf- fered defeat. Combination is always a first considera- tion in team building on tour, and the first few matches are extremely nterest ing as well as im- portant. The Kan- garoos in this period will go through a kind of metamorphosis.
