SYDNEY, Sunday.'

Scoring four tries in the last 25 minutes, Australia defeated The Rest 14-6 at the Sydney Cricket, Ground yesterday in the last trial-for the tour of Soijth


Poor goal-kicking and handling and some equally 'bad tackling featured yesterday's main game.

Six goal kickers tried and could only land one conversion from the front of the "posts from more than a dozen chances.

This contrasted with the per- formance of Wallaby fullback Bt'ian Piper, who landed six goala for the Possible against the Probables.

Twenty-year-old hooker, Don Bain, beat Australia's hooker, Jim Walsh, in the set scrums. In the lineouts The Rest pair, Nick Shehadie and Tony Miller, beat Alan Cameron and Col. Forbes.

Australia, however, outplayed The Rest in the loose rucks.

The forward superiority coupled with a fine display ?':>} centre Herb Barker enabled The Rest to hold their 6-0 lead until vvell into the second half..

In the closiiiç stages, however, Australia scored four quick tries, and for the first time in the match its . baa'ts handled and penetrated impressively.

Scores: Australia 14 (S. '"White,

I. Walsh, J. Solomon, K. Cross j
