March 9 - 1889 NZ 'Natives' win at Widness
Since playing England on February 16 the “Natives” had a busy programme, playing mostly every second day, sometimes (Feb. 18 & 19, Mar. 4 & 5 and again on Mar. 13 & 14) on consecutive days. Results were mixed in this period, until on March 9 against Widnes they started on a successful ten game streak, nine wins and a one all draw at Hull.
The match against Widnes, beaten by two goals and two tries to one try was one of the more comfortable wins.
