The toppling of Marist by Collegiate makes the chances of Bluff winning the Galbraith Shield more likely. Collegiates 12-3 win has bought it to second place in the competition but it would have to win the next two games and have Bluff lose their next two games, which is highly unlikely the way the Bluff team is playing.
Invercargill beat Pirates in a game of aimless kicking by both sides. Old Boys downed Star in a scrappy game and as above Collegiate was too good for Marist and beat them the second time this season.
For the Old Boys game the outstanding player was R.A. Harrington who bought his representative honours to the forefront by running in one try and and making three others. Collegiates, Len Wilson who scored half his team's points gave a fine display of attacking rugby against Marist.
Wilson was the 'silky general' in the game, shrewd and determined on attack he scored one try and was unlucky not to score another after a great run. He received the ball in the Marist's 25 yds beat J. Hawke and passed to A. Dalzell, the collegiate centre, the ball bounced off his left arm, but the ever alert Wilson, backing up swooped on the ball, ran around R. Flynn and side-stepped B. Reilly and scored in the corner.
Wilson made another thrilling run where he eluded three Marist defenders and ran 50 yds before Flynn and Reilly forced him outright by the corner flag.
Marist won a good amount of ball especially from the lineouts where M. O'Neill was seen for his great jumping and clean taking. Although O'Neill played well also in the tight along with L. Mason, F. Ward and L. Ward who featured in the loose, Collegiate forwards were able to hold their own.
S. Morton for collegiate showed played well and with a spirited dash for the line he off loaded to E. Holland who dived across the line but this was seen as a 'forward pass'. Others to show up were R. Mills, Marist first five eight and J. Newton, Collegiate full back.
The teams were as follows:
COLLEGIATE: J. Newton, L. Hodges, A. Dalzell., E. Holland., A.L. Wilson., I.A. Nuttal., J. Morton., S. Morton., W. McMillan., A. Gray., J. Smith., I. Todd., C. Radka., D. Tait., S. Cournane.
MARRIST: B. Reilly., R. Flynn., J. Flynn., P. o'Neill., J. Hawke., R. Wills., O.O'connor., L Ward., F. Ward., G.B. Winders., M. O'Neill., L. Mason., H. O'Neill., P. Sheehan., R. Scott.

The same week Invercargill beat Pirates 8-O in a game marred by aimless kicking even by the forwards, which was a worry. The halfback especially worked the touch lines after every line out and scrum which just made the opposition have possession. There was little merit in play for either team but for Invercargill., P. Knight gave a good exhibition at half back as well as kicking two goals from wide angles. For Pirates, the wingers, J. Cowan and B. Dawson showed commendable enterprise and both were unlucky not to score.
R. Heathcote scored a try for Invercargill and P. Knight coverted it and scored a penalty.
INVERCARGILL: L. Agnew., W.M. Smith., B. Barton., R. Thwaite., T. W. Edie., R. Malcolm., P. Knight., B. Millar., G. Capil., R. Heathcote., A.J. Borland., A. Radka., W. A. Davidson., J. S. Borland., F.Whaanga.
PIRATES: D. Hiini., B. Dawson., E. Mortimer., J. Cowan., D. Hayes., C. Ruatahi., O. Brow., B. Slade., R. Smith., M Dempster., J. Mainland., D. Thomas., E. McDowall., L. Thomas., R. Diack.
