New Centre's Big Part
In Rules Win
Playing his first game as centre, Jack Sheedy gave u brilliant exhibi- tion for Sydney-Naval Australian Rules side yesterday. He was main- ly responsible for most of his side's scoring moves.
Sydney-Naval defeated St. George by 48 points-21-21, 147, to 14-15, 99, at Trumper Park.
Sheedy, although only 19, is in his third year of first-grade football, hav- ing played in both Western Australia and Victoria.
In all previous games he has played only as a rover or pocket forward.

The teamwork displayed by Syd- ney-Naval was first-class.

He was taken to St. Vincent's Hos- pital, but allowed to leave after treat-
Alan Strang announced after the game that he would be returning to Albury this week.
He does not expect to be back in Sydney.
