RUGBY UNION GAME. IMPROVEMENTS SUGGESTED INTERNATIONAL'S IDEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 28 March 1919
RUGBY UNION GAME. IMPROVEMENTS SUGGESTED INTERNATIONAL'S IDEAS. Lieut. E. E. Booth, the well known member of the famous All Black team, suggested in a London paper that the Rugby Union game would be greatly im proved were some drastic changes made. Fourteen a Side. My suggestion for the betterment of Rugby football are as follow:— The number of players should 'be re duced to fourteen men—seven forwards and seven -backs. The scrum should be standardised by the adoption of the New Zealand style, 2—3—2 being the best for rapidity of formation, i.e., "packing," wheeling, and screwing, and ability to see the ball in the serum. There would be fewer cases of "foot-up;" "iooso head" troubles would cease, and the centre row front rankers would be u'.i able to "swing across.' ' This last movement, ibj1, the way, was introduced here by the Wallabies in 1908-9. The playing time could 'be divided into four equal quarters of not less than twenty minutes' duration each, quarter and three-quarter t...

"Wingers" Barred. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 28 March 1919
'Wingers" Barred. I would like to see the wing forward abolished, and no player on either side advance past an imaginary line parallel with the rear of his own scrum. Thitl would prevent illegal work by the scrum halves and give distance between thij outstanding halves. Unintentional "knock-on," provided the player re covers the ball before it' touches the ground, should be permitted, and would constitute in the case of fair catch a fair mark. Any fair catch immediately claimed as a "mark" by the catcher, even if he should be off the ground, ought to he allowed. Any player -pushing an opponent with one or both hands, except in tile cas» of "finding" in running, ought to b» penalised 'by the 'granting ■ of • a "fffce kick." One man of either side, if . in position, could constitute a scrum, an® the referee should at once place the ball between them. Other Proposals. ' A universal ruling is needed in tho following cases, the Colonial interpre tation being as follows:— '' Any -player t...

TEAMSTERS MADE LIVING BY CARRYING WOOL. But Railway Came. And Then When They Had Been Wiped Out the Commissioners Raised Rates.
