was an excellent centre both in attack and even more so on defence where his tackling, falling, covering and mauling were all first rate. At the other centre position, Robert Donahue had the inside track, (although Kevin Gunning also played a number of games), but when Donahue was injured, Bill Chisholm was given a trial and immediately fitted in smoothly, running strongly and tackling well. At full-back, or perhaps it would be more accurate to refer to the position as third centre, was Steven Heffelfinger, a player of ability and attacking flair, who developed well as the season wore on. As already mentioned, he switched to fly-half for the final three games of the season and came through with three good performances showing that he has a good feel for this most demanding of all positions. On the wings were Harley Ware and Roland Emery, Harley with his shortest-distance-between-two-points-in-a-straight- line running, (a couple of his efforts had to be seen to be believed) and Roland with his much more elusive style. Harley was undoubtedly one of the strongest running wings we have had in recent years but Roland was erratic, playing some excellent games but guilty of some curious lapses in concentration. In defence both players were unsure when called on to deal with high attacking punts and neither was at all confident in his own kicking ability. The results in the Independent Schools League Matches were as close as they have ever been and although we ended up by sharing the wooden spoon with Brentwood College, all the four schools were very evenly matched. Indeed, apart from one game, the largest number of points conceded by any of the four schools in any game was 13 and in seven of the matches neither side could reach double figures. 1st XV RESULTS vs. Hillside S.S.

We also had the referee, from his vantage point well infield, disallow Peel ' s scoring attempt in the corner and we missed two easy penalties attempts. At Brentwood we went down 4-9, a defensive lapse in the centre permitting an easy try to be scored. It was in this game that our lack of a place kicker was really emphasized, for although we did not deserve to win, three very kickable penalties were missed. Fortune did not smile upon us in a close 8-9 loss to St. Michael ' s at home. It was an even game until the last ten minutes or so when we were hammering away at their line keeping them penned up well inside their 22m line. However, a strong defence and the lack of a cool head during these critical minutes allowed them to escape with a win. Incidentally our conversion attempt from fairly well out in our second try, struck the cross bar squarely in the middle - another inch! We lost 0-10 to St. George ' s again having to play away from home in foul weather conditions of strong wind and driving rain. St. George ' s used it in the first half very much better than we did in the second. Nevertheless, we should never have allowed St. George ' s the cushion of a second try scored late in the match during one of their few forays into our half of the field. The forwards who had completely outplayed their opponents in all phases of the game were not pleased. W e came up with a rather flat performance in our away fixture at St. Michael ' s University and lost by 4- 14. Once again we did not make use of the strong wind blowing up and down the field. We paid the price in the second half when our oppenents seldom allowed us to get out of our half by their judicious use of the 13
