The homesters led off spiritedly and quickly invaded the visitors' territory, where a smart bout of passing all the quartette handling, enabled the wing man to get over with a try in the corner the same player failing at the augmentation. The artillerymen made an incursion into the Seasider's territory, but thi third lines erratic passes precluded an equalisation and ouly a minor resulted. Play was now hotly waged in Penarth's quarters, the outcome being another minor. To the attack they returned agaiiij when Clode attempted a drop for goal, a miner, how- ever, being its fate. This was followed by the same player trying the same tactics, with a similar fate. 0.
