The only interesting feature of the match between Subiaco and ..Sou'ifii. Fre UHnriJe, on tine Fremantle Oval on SahL. day, was the fact that the minor nronnVrs
rere beaten iby the lowest team in the jcague. Otherwise the match was dull md unintorcstins. Occasionally there vere eome 'bright flashes of 'individual way. Subiaeo, at rare intervals, showed ;ome of the concerted pay which has von tlhem the 3iighest place on the list, mt, for the most pti^t 'they appeared to »ntent themselves with playing a hap laz&rd Mnd of iootbail. Souths were the -etter team on the day. They set a ligher standard of play flian their op )onents and kept it up throughout -the ifternooa The first quarter was a runaway. Tie home teami made full tse of the strong .wind, and the ball wssed through their goal on sis occa sions. Tt was expected that, when *nbiaco had the advantage of the wind hiring the second quarter, that the scores wouid be reversed and tiat the risitors- would be in the .If ad at.'the lialf :inie bel'l: Sou-t&i Fremantle, however, Dlayed well and were in front aH the lav. .

He 'wa? ably supported by Sunderlandi wio- did well footh in and out of the packs. 'Johnny' Campbell, who was marking grandly, Edgar, who pteyed particularly well in the last quarter, and Hughes were ethers who earned their inclusion in the team.
