-= ¡ FOOTBALL. ( —— ¡ The Northern Union Game. ¡ CHAMPIONS V. REST OF WELSH LEAGUE. Ebbw. Vale, the champions of the Welsh Northern Union League, met a team representing the rest of the clubs in the League at Ebbw Vale, on Mon- day. The teams were as follow:- Pick of Wa!es. Bad.. Fitzgerald (Treherbert): three-quarter backs, Gowmeadow, Ponty Thomas (Merthyr), Evans (Aberdaro), and Parker (Abe:- dare); half-backs, H. Rees and D. Rees (Mid-Rhon- dda)-' forwards, D. B. Davies (Merthyr), Thomas and Jenkins (Merthyr), Norris (Mir-Rhondda), Gal- loway (Treherbert). and Dan Lewis (Merthyr). Ebbw Vale: Back, Dai Davies; three-quarter backs, Kerton Harvey, H. Smith, and "Chick" Jenkins, half-backs, Shiglo Thomas and W. Higgins (cap- I tain): forwards, J Foley, G. Hitchings, W. Brown, Dai Maile O. Burgham, and J. Edmunds. Ebbw Vale started against a strong wind, and play was taken to the visitors' quarters, where "Shiglo" Thomas was injured and had to retire, but soon resumed. The visitors receiving smartly from the scrum saw Rees, the visiting outside half, make a good run, but his pass went astray. Ebbw Vale secured the ball from the scrum, and Higgins receiving, put in a kick which Hitchings failed to gather, but Brown racing up dribbled nearly half the length of the field and scored. Dai Davies con- verted. The teams crossed over with Ebbw Vale leading by five points to nil. With the wind in their favour Ebbw Vale held the upper hand in the second half, but the game became very uninteresting. "Chick" made a good but fruit- less attempt to kick a goal from over the halfway line. Then Ebbw Vale pressed, and Smith beat I Fitzgerald and scored under the post. Dai Davies r converted. From a. scrum "Shiglo" got over in the corner Davies again converting at a difficult angle. Just before time Foley got over, Davies majorising. The champions, therefore, won by tour goals, four tries (20 points) to ml. I The game was not a good exhibition of the Nor- thern Union code, being very unmethodical and scrambling. Ebbw Vale were the better team, and Dai Davies's excellent goal-kicking was the chicf feature of the match.
