THE FIRST XV Back Row: (L. to R.) Mr. D. W. Hyde-Lay, S. Heffelfinger, B. Kenny, K. Gunning, D. Peel, T. Pratt, R. Donahue, J. Kitson, D. Scbieldrop. Middle Row: (L. to R.) H. Ware, J. Hayes, R. Girotto, M. Collver (Captain), D. Coalman, A. Croft, G. Boyd Front Row: (L. to R.) T. Seeger, R. Emery Frequently a very small margin exists between victory and defeat, as this year ' s side discovered. Their final record of seven wins and seven losses certainly did not flatter them. Two of the wins were rather one sided but all the other twelve matches were closely co ntested - our heaviest defeat was 4-14 by St. Michael ' s University School and our biggest win 14-6 over Oak Bay Secondary School. Lack of a reliable place kicker proved our undoing in a number of these games as a record of only six penalty goals and nine conversions in 14 matches will attest. Nevertheless, all was not gloom and despondency and much good rugby was played. The team under the leader- ship of Mark Collver, maintained a good spirit and positive attitude despite their frustrating results. The pack was a good one and was only outplayed in the first Brentwood match. It was big and mobile and nearly always gave the backs more that their share of the ball from both the tight and the loose. The front row of Mark Collver, Bruce Kenny and Jeffrey Hayes was very solid. In addition, these three were very good in the loose play too, especially Hayes. Darcy Peel and Trevor Pratt formed the second row, the former a big mobile player of much promise and the latter a hard grafter - a good pair! The back row too were sound without being spectacular. Jamie Kitson at flanker was quick and aggressive onto the loose ball while Glenn Boyd on the other flank was a safe tackier and a sound defensive player. David Coalman at number 8, played some very outstanding games, especially early on in the season. He is by nature a very constructive player and was also our best lineout forward. The backs were erratic and did not make the most of their chances, looking, at times, very ordinary. It was not until it was almost too late that the introduction of Bill Chisholm, promoted to the 1st XV from the Colts, and a switching of positions between Ronnie Girotto and Steven Heffelfinger, had a stimulating effect and the backs began to look danger- ous in attack. If we were to begin the season again tomor- row, a very different set of results would be achieved, I feel sure. Nevertheless, every single member of the backfield had some excellent matches, but were unable to develop into a smooth unit until the changes already mentioned were tried. Tom Seeger, at scrum-half, had a good season. He has a good service from both scrum and lineout and is a dangerous runner in the open field. His tactical kicking is not a strong point at present and needs his attention. His partner at half-back, Ronnie Girotto, is by nature a defen- sive player and found the decision-making required at the fly-half position inhibited his play. Once he moved to full-back he immediately looked at home and all his many good points rose once more to the surface. Andrew Croft 12
