Sport of the Week. -,+- HULL lopts., AHD-RIIONDDA 7. This was one of the best matches Keen this season at Tonypandy. From start to finish there was not a dull moment, and the home team are to be congratu- lated on their day's play. Hull were the xaore robust and heavier combination, and held a decided advantage in the first moiety, playing a. dashing game. Their backs passed excellently, and fairly non- plussed the Rhondda men. E. Rogers, who scored the opening try, is an excep- tionally fine wing, but the score was a doubtful one, as he is claimed to have infringed the touch-line before he crossed. There was no mistaking Hull's second score. G. Rogers, the outside half, receiving from Anderson, his partner, broke clean through the defence and rounded the posts. E. Rogers' converted both with splendid kicks for goal. Hull led by ten points at the interval, and soon after the re-start E. Rogers again scored a try, which he converted. A complete change now came over the game. Mid-Rhondda, who so far had shown indifferent form, were all over their opponents. J. N. Jones experienced the hardest of luck in failing to score. Matthews eventually crossed the line, but the referee disallowed the try, and then, after a penalty kick had lost its mark, Ned Rees put the ball over with a well-judged effort. Mid-Rhondda now put extra vigour into their play, and Geo. Matthews pierced the defence with a nice try, which Ned Rees converted. For the visitors E:. and G. Rogers were the most prominent in the backs, and Harridge, Baylen, and Holder in the front. E!. N. Rees and J. N. Jones were the shining lights of the. home quartette, while Matthews, F. Jones and Norris were prominent forward. LLWYNYPIA THURSDAYS 9pts., CAM- BRIAN BOYS 3.

The Juniors, after this, played splendid football, but the Albions scored another goal before the interval, G. Bloomfield beating Davies with a nice shot. After lemons, the Juniors pressed for -it while, and Roberts, receiving a nice pasg from Lloyd, scored with a great shot. After this reverse the Albions had most of the play, and scored through W.
