fl plea fails in the West, and
GET STAR FROM WA
From PERCY TAYLOR
PERTH, Wednesday: A strong plea by
Hawthorn secretary Bill Newton today ¡
failed to secure a clearance for star rover. Cyril Collard.
Newton told Subiaco Club "that Collard was
well established in a job in Melbourne and had ¡ a good chance of promotion. .
But Subiaco stood firm " and without .giving a reason decided against Hawthorn.
East Perth is just as defi nite in its decision to keep "Polly" Farmer, star, ruck man sought by Richmond.
Even if the two clubs had agreed to clear the players it is almost certain the W.A. League would have refused to allow the transfer.
Feeling in Perth is harden ing against allowing any player to go to Victoria.
Several good players have approached Victorian offi cials wanting to come to Vic toria, but it all seems à waste of time.
At the same time, tentative feelers have been made to several Victorians, but they have not reached the definite stage.
