A Win at Cardiff
Maori team: Pelham, Falwasser, Lockwood, Phillips (captain), Mete, Wi Neera, Love, Haupapa, Olsen, Stewart, Rika, S. Gemmell, Tatana, Wilson and Manihera.
Cardiff Club: Male, Johnson, Davies, Turnbull, Cornish, Delahay (captain), G. Richards, I. Richards, Lewis, D. G. Davies, Burns, Lee, Watkins, K. J. Turnbull and Barrell.
Cardiff soon opened their scoring account, Falwasser being caught with the ball near the line. Davies scored, and Male converted. The Maoris attacked strongly, however, and from a scrum on the line the ball came out to Falwasser. The wing was held on the line, but contrived to get a pass out to Love, who scored. Phillips failed with the kick. A shower of rain made things unpleasant, and a period of even play followed. A free kick against the Maoris enabled Male to bring Cardiff’s score to eight points, but the Maoris were equal to the occasion. Pelham smothered a movement and set off on a sixty- yard dribble to the Cardiff line. A try was lost, however, through Manihera knocking on in an endeavour to pick the ball up, but almost immediately the Maoris drew level. A kick by a Cardiff back rebounded off a Maori, and Mete jumped for the ball, to score a fine try. Pelham converted, and at half-time the score was eight all.
In the second spell the Maoris played with complete confidence and scored two more tries. A fine piece of dribbling by Mete put the Maoris in an attacking position, and from play close to the line Wi Neera scored. Later the Maori forwards rushed the ball across the line, and after Cornish had failed to touch down, Wi Neera scored his second try. Pelham converted both tries, Cardiff made two very dangerous attacks, but Pelham was equal to the occasions and brought off two very fine saves, and the Maoris left the field winners by 18 points to 8.”
