It was 1956 and Southland rugby completed their representative season at home with a win against the Wellington touring side. The game was played in a howling wind and Southland was thankful that Wellington won the toss and gave them the advantage in the first half - as they ran in 17 points to their opponents 3. Ray Todd was the man of the match, showing brillance with an individual try.
D.L. Ashby, R. W. Gilson, M. D. Earwaker, Ray Todd, R. Terry, C. Rautahi, J. T. McKenzie, Peter Hayes, G. E. Groves, C. A. Lamb, Ian Todd, R. J. Bowen, Bert Winders, T. Ryan Ack Soper, Alister Tait, C. Rautahi, R. Terry, C. A. Woods, R. Bowen, E. Jamieson.
It was not a game that would be remembered fondly as the conditions were atrocious, it was nearing the end of the season and Southland seemed to have other things on their minds - like the Shield Challenge against Canterbury the following week.
,'Southland with the wind at their backs first saw Gilson join the line from the short side and kick.
