¡ In my first batch of notes- I" pro- mised, to give you Boine- information about one of the new Bugby ¡ clubs ! in the metropolis, viz., The Berths. ' but there was . no hope last week,'-aod as the season started yesterday. J i shall have to curtail my remarks of each individual club, so as to get - a few words in about them all. "Kid" Wild wa» the organiser of tie Perihs, and with him he had S. B.-and. -M. Jago, Jack Molloy, Langley, and many other enthusiasts. They held their first meeting at the pri', and froni the very jump a successful eSort was assured. Jade Malloy . was elec- ted secretary.treasurer, and with- him "Queenie" Lahiff was: elected the club's delegates in.the imiori. ;G."£. Rogers, one of the old-timers, '.also decided to thi-ow in his loï with the
Perths, so they elected bini their fe- j presehtative on the special fcommittee '' of the Union. Andy Maloney has been' elected captain, and blue and white hoops have been registered1 as the club's playing colors. .
Amongst the Perths*. ranks' . some very fine placiers -are- to,,be' \:found, ? namely, Secretary Jack' ^ollóy, ' -the Jago Bros., Micky'Garcia,, and -Ma- loney, f think" are the best. I^gley
is :another likely one. They should; put about the lightest and fastest, team in the field. , " :"
Quite a large concourse pf people congregated on the Esplanade to" wit- ness the first Rugby Union game held in ' Pertii for söme ' years, * and ." good .wishes for the longevity of thé young- ster in tour- 'inids^ were^xn^t; ..lacking. I know one-, ojd^ yaitâ^. /«fco, would have liked to have stripped off, and been amongst "it." /î^-iTÇ^iis... ^the younger ones and the best ' - of ns. .Various members löf ."Jhe District team of Saturday 'week have expressed, the desire to mcet 'the Perth;Conitóha . tion .again, when they think they can
successfully turn tne feSjres* around;.; ? '
There was one very noticeable .fea- ture about the game, and.-that " was the entire absence.of. any ill-feeling or rough play. -Everyone played 'the. game m ,the very'best-spirit, . and proved that Rugbyites are sportsmen. Every man played his- bfest for'bis: side, and for the love of the game, and it will not be the. fault of toeVplayers' if Rugby does not 'flourish here ih s^
season. - . ?
The following is the ¿draw .and/ the | allocation of grounds for, the, . ; first, round of the Alcock trophy competi-
tion. Messrs. Speers,- "Thornton, and; -De I ja Hunty had <a- good . -.deal of trouble in allocating grounds, .sp '''as. to cause.no dissatisfaction. Owing: to the scattered nature of the grounds, dates of only the first round .could be allocated, but by next week.everything.; should be settled :
