BUNBAMBA, the leaders for the Soc cer premiership, maintained their position on Saturday after a very close fieht with Oxley. and indications now

point to Bundamba and Booval dis puting the honours. St. Helens continued their recent good efforts by accounting for Corin thians at Heath Park, and judging by their present form the Saints may spring further surprises before the end of the season. Most of the players who will repre sent Queensland against England on Wednesday night did well in Satur day's matches, and as the team has undergone an intensive course of train ing the Englishmen are not likely to have things all their own wav in their first, engagement in this State. MANY CHANCES MISSED Corinthians have only themselves to bliime lor their failure against St. Helens, as they did most of the attacking but were un able to gel the ball Into, the net. Wilson and Petlc, Saints' full backs. k:ivi; nothing away, and Malcolmsen. Founlaine, and Jordon con stituted a solid middle line. For Corinthians Cooms and Enrlght were a pair of sound full backs, and the right winner, Brown, was responsible for some very clever runs. ? In holding Latrobe to a draw at Lang   Park Shafston Rovers showed much Im proved form. Duffy and Williams in the forwards played their best football this season, and with a little more support prob ably would hav» won the game. The de fence also was very safe. particularly Thomas, Cain, and McArthur. Even Parry, who has been mentioned as Australia's left wing for the second Test, found Thomas and Cain very hard to beat. Murray and Glbb were again prominent for Latrobe in the halves, and Oluham and MrColl were Ihn nlr.k of the forwards.

Bundamba Just managed to beat Oxley In Ihe closing staRcs at Bundamba. Oxley's de fenders rose to sreat heights in stemming Ihe leader's attack, and Bcllby in goal and (Voolley at full-back were always In the thick of things. Dann. at Inside right, was dangerous near goal, and his two goals were fine efforts. Biggs was prominent In the Bundnmba de fence. The halves gave the forwards plenty of the ball, but weak finishing spoilt many promising moves. v TRIANGLES CHALLENGE     Despite the absence of -ome o'f their lead ing players, Y.M.C.A. prove/I much too good for Merton Rovers, and a continuation of such form may see the Triangles challenging Ihe leaders before the end of the season. Nelson, the State Inside right, wn.s well on the snot with two goals, and Hughes at In side left also did well. Mertons were well served by Love and Andrews In the halves, but the forwards were weak.
