FOOTBALL. THE SOUTH WALES CHALLENGE CUP.—FIRST TIES. CARDIFF V. NEWPORT CRUSADERS.—The first tie between these clubs was played at the Cardiff Arms Park, Cardiff, on Saturday, in the presence of a large number of spectators. Both teams were well represented, and an exciting contest was witnessed. The Crusaders kicked off, and the ball was kept in Cardiff ground, Watts and Barlow being collared in attempting to return. From a scrimmage Williams ran into neutral territory, where be kicked in touch. When thrown out, Watts tried to escape, but lost ground, and a scrimmage ensued just outside the 25. Cardiff then worked out to mid-distance, but owing to some ineffectual attempts to pass, the ball was again brought within the 25. From a scrimmage Watts tried to make off and was collared, and from another scrimmage close to the home goal the Crusaders punted the ball forward, and Barlow touched down in self-defence. W. D. Phillips re-started the ball for Cardiff. Itwps well returned by the Crusaders and kept in the Cardiff 25. Dowdell made several smart attempts to run in, and a tight struggle resulted in a touch in goal by Girling. These were the only points the visitors scored. W. D. Phillips having kicked out, the ball was dribbled back by the Crusaders to the Cardiff 25. Soon afterwards he made off and passed to Watts, who punted into neutral ground. W. D. Phillips followed up, and from his kick forward Treatt made a clever run, being tackled when well in the visitors' territory. From a scrimmage Arthurs dropped in touch within the 25, and, when thrown out, Treatt ran in and secured a try. BaHow took the place, but failed to cover the posts, and, the ball being fol- lowed up by Hinton, the Crusaders touched down in self-defence. From this point until half-time was called the ball was kept almost entirely in the visitors' territory, and they had frequently to rally in defence of their goal. Free kick", were obtained by Watts and Norton, but no additions were made to the scores. The second half was commenced by Jones kicking off for Cardiff. The ball was re- turned, but Arthurs carried it into neutral ground, and passed to Watts, who was collared at mid-distance. When thrown out of touch, the ball was kicked into Cardiff terri- tory, where it was stopped by W. D. Phillips, and kicked over the line. From the throw out the ball was caught by Arthurs, who ran well into the Crusaders' ground, and on being tackled passed to Norton. The latter player evaded his pursuers and placed the ball right between the posts. Barlow took the try and kicked a clear goal. For some time the leather was kept in Cardiff territory, but at length it was dribbled into the visitors' 25. It was then sent in touch just outside the 25, and when thrown out Treatt tried to run and passed to Phillips, who in turn passed to Williams. Wil- liams secured the try at the moment when he was collared. The Crusaders claimed a touch down in self-defence, but the referee was against them, and Barlow proceeded to kick for goal. The kick was a failure, and the Crusaders, some of whom were dissatisfied with the referee's decision and refused to charge, touched down in self-defence. The game continued in favour of Cardiff, and on the ball being thrown from toncli near the visitors' 25 flag Jones got away, and, on being collared, passed to Arthurs, who ran in and secured another try. The kick for goal by Barlow was again un- successful, and the Crusaders touched down in self-defence. No side was soon afterwards called, the result being a decided victory for Cardiff by one goal, three tries, and three touches down, to one touch down and one touch in goal. The fol- lowing are the names of the teams:—Cardiff: T. M. Barlow, back; W. D. Phillips, W. B. Norton, and E. Watts, three-quarter backs; F. M. Arthurs and T.Williams,half-backs B. E.

AFAN r(ABERAvo.)-TheM clubs played a first tie for the Welsh Challenge Cup on Saturday at Swansea. The weather was beauti- fully fine, and the ground in excellent condition. There was a large attendance of spectators. The game was a very one-sidod affair. From the com- mencement the Afan men had no chance of w in- ning. Swansea scored four goals and three tries to nil. Three of the goals were kicked by Doggett, W. H. Gwynne, and D. Gwynne. Shugg and Morris (the captain) also played well for Swansea. BBIDGEND v. AIVFRDARE.—The first cup tie be- tween these clubs was played at the Alexandra Park, Cardiff, on Saturday, in beautiful weather. The teams were composed as follow :—Bridgend: —J. Gregory (captain), back; T. Davies, three- quarter bick C. Verity and W. Woollacott, half- backs A. Gregory, T. Jonathan, and D. Richards, quarter-backs; P. Thomas, E. James, D. Roderick, W. Phillips, L. Powell, D. B. Evans, T. Cusse, and W. Pritchard, forwards; umpire, Mr. J. Deavin. Aberdare:—Lewis,back; W. Evans and L. WilJiams, half-backs; James and Owens, quarter-backs; Thursby (captain), Thomas, Rowlands, Jenkins, T. James, Walden, W. Thomas, Wakefield, Simons, and Chowles, forwards; umpire, Mr. Davies. The referee was Mr. Hughes, Canton, Cardiff. Bridgend having won the toss, E. James kicked off against the sun, and Owens obtaining a, fair catch sent the ball into the Bridgend 25. Davies (Bridgend), however, took the play into neutral territory by a. good run straight through the Aber- dare forwards before he was collared. The play was the n carried into the Aberdare 25, and from a scrimmage the ball was sent over the line, and Bridgend obtained a try. The place was a difficult one, and an excellent kick by Verity did not restilt in a goal, but Aberdare touched down in self-de- fence. Very soon afterwards the ball was dribbled over by A. Gregory, and Phillips obtained a try. This was converted into a goal by Verity. With a splendid kick Thursby sent the ball close to the Bridgend goal, and it was well followed up. J. Gregory only made a short run before he was collared, and a scrimmage was formed in the Bridgend 25. Aberdare now played with better spirit, but did not succeed in scoring, and the ball was again brought down to their quarters. It was dribbled over their goal line, and they were compelled to touch down in self-defence. A couple of minutes afterwards they were again compelled to touch down, but when half-time was called the ball had been sent into touch ,at the Bridgend 25 yards' flag. In the beginning of the second half the play was very fast and interesting. Thursby made a very useful dribble, and some good runs by Jonathan,WoIlacott, and Verity brought the ball to the Aberdare goal line, over which it was sent from a scrimmage, and Aberdare touched down in self-defence. Soon afterwards Verity kicked the ball over the line and Aberdare was compelled to add another point to the score against them. After the kick out Verity and Woollacott made good runs, but one of the Aberdare backs, with a splendid kick, sent the leather into neutral territory. Thursby made some useful runs, but he was not backed up as he ought to have been, and the result was that before the game terminated Aberdare had to touch down once more. Bridgend, therefore, won by a goal, a try, and six touches down to nothing. According to the challenge cup rules for this year the number of points scored by Bridgend was eighteen. LLANDILO V. LLANELLY.—^QUARRELSOME PLAYERS. —This match, one of the first cup ties, was played at the Cawdor Arms Field, Llandilo, on Saturday. The weather was verv favourable, and there was a large attendance of spectators. Llanelly won the toss and elected to play from the westerly side. After the kick off the visitors were quickly at work, and shortly Davies sent the ball into touch, Llanellv thereby scoring the first point. Oxenhain then, receiving the ball from scrimmage, made a good dodging run. On being collared he passed the ball to Judson, and with some good dribbling from C. P. Lewis it was brought in dangerous proximity to the Llanelly goal. However, it was taken back by a series of splendid passes and ? good run by Roderick and Llandilo had again to touch down. Frequent dis- putes occurred, and the two umpires could by no means agree. Affairs came to a crisis Jut belore half-time was called by Judson kicking the ball into touch, and C. P.'Lewis, who was full back, rushed to touch down, and fell with his hand upon the ball. Several Llanelly men came up imme- diately, set the ball again moving, and claImed a try, which was converted into a goal under pro- test, the Llandilo team being ordered not to charge. Unfortunately for the play, neither the Liana umpire nor the referee saw the incident, the crowd being so great at this point. The visitors claimed the goal, and the home team declared it to be merely a touchdown. Neither side giving way the game was stopped, and the result left in doubt. Lmpires, Messrs. C. E. Williams, Llandovery College, and J. Brown, Llanelly. Referee, Mr. R. lrubstall, Llanellv. Sides: Llandilo: C. P. Lewis, back T. H. Judson, C. Oxenham, and W. E. Roberts, half-backs; T. Davies, O.
