Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
The teams were:
The crowd of 3-4000 were disappointed with Southland's effort and did not have much hope for their challenge of the Ranfurly Shield the following weekend against Canterbury.
The team looked stale with the backs at odds with each other, missing many tackles and not finding any combination that worked.
Both teams suffered injuries with Wanganui losing their nippy half back, L. Edwards in the first five minutes.
Edwards collided with D. L. Asbhy while they were both going for a high ball, both players were knocked out.
Wanganui had to shuffle their team, with I. Lockett, a smart and versatile player going into half back and A Williams the replacement for Edwards going to the wing.
H. O'Neill (Southland) was replaced by G. Groves.
Ack Soper, who was trying his best to get the side going, received an ankle injury and was replaced by No. 8, E. Jamieson.
R. W. Gilson, Southland's left wing made some good breaks, but it was Wanganui that took the lead after half time with C. O'Leary, Lockett and P. Jones combining well and breaking through the Southland defence with the former scoring under the posts and he also managed to convert.
M. D. Earwaker replaced Kevin Laidlaw when Wanganui were threatening to score but were lucky that they were held up.
One minute from full time, Lockett was caught on his goal line with ball in hand. In a scramble, Ian Todd for Southland managed to secure the ball and score.
