ROSSLYN PARK 2ND 64 CANTERBURY PILGRIMS 7
A second Zoo League defeat left Pilgrims with plenty of questions to answer. Beaten for pace, speed of pass and the inability to tackle when needed they were condemned to a poor afternoon. The only time Canterbury were in contention was in the early stages when they cancelled Park’s opening converted try with a excellent kick and chase from Jack Weaver. Frank Morgan, the pick of the back division, took the scoring pass and Harvey Young converted. After that it was a one way street with Park soaring to a 33-7 lead by half time. There was no respite in the second period as the big home side added another five tries to their haul. Seven conversions inflicted more pain on the badly mauled Pilgrims.
