i v Hull Merthy,? v Hu)) I OPENING OFTHE NEW GROUND I Since last season, when they occupied the Collegia Field, Merthyr Northern Union Club have transferred themselves to new and more convenient cruairtens. The enclosure now situated at Rhydacar has ample acoomimo- da,tion for a huge crowd. It is well appointed in every respect, and, morevoer, the surface is as level as the proverbial billiard-table. The committee are certainly to be heartily congratulated upon their enterprise in this direction in the faee of numerous difficulties. The club's -new home was formally opened to-day, when the inau- gural match was played with Hull. The fixture was op,-c,iadlv attractive, inasmuch as ior the past two years the visitors have figured as finalists. in the. Northern Union Ohalleai'ge Cup, and just failed to capture the coveted trophy. On Thursday last Hull opened their engagements, and administered a sound defeat to Bradford, whom they van- quished by 18 points to 3. The most notable abstention from the visitors' ranks was Phil Thomas, who is stated to have taken seriously to the game again, and would have proved exceedingly vamaWe in the three-quarter line. The Merthyr ranks included three ot the disbanded Mid-Rhondda team—Palmer Griffiths, Norris, and Joneri. Owing to an injury, Harrison, a clever half-back, was unable to turn out. Teams:— Hull: Back, W. H. Taylor; three-quarter backs, A. D. Morton, J. Devereaux, Greg Rogers., and Edward Rogers; hali-backs, Andereon (captain) and Wallace; forwards, Herridg-e, Holder, Boyleu, Con net, Walton, and Have lock. Merthyr: Back, Palmer Griffiths; three- quarter backs, Wyatt Reed, P. Paddison, C. P. Lewis, and "Ponty" Thomas; lialf-b-kl-, Syd Jones and W. Harris; forwards, D. B. Davies (captain), Dan Lewis, Norris, W. Bevan, E. Jenkins, and T. Jones. Referee: Mr. Platt (Swinton). THE GAME. tho I A good crowd was present, in !>V' VL fact that a violent storm of wind and rain swept over the ground, when Hull started in the face of the elements. The game was fairly evenly contested at the outset, neither side for a time gaining much advantage. After a penalty had failed Rogers jlull) was more successful from a mark, and put his side two points ahead. The home team worked ahead and got wed into Hull territory, but Norton saved the situation. The game was temporarily stopped owing to an injury to Syd James. On the resumption, Ihe homesters went away in style, and gained a big slice of territory. A bunch of forwards got to the Hull line, and an almost certain score was lost through, the leather striking the post and re-bounding into play. It wa6 distinctly hard lines. ax this sta-ge the Merthyr men were going strong. The forwards, led by D. B. Da vies, were most prominelllt in gletting possession, but they failed at the crucial moment. Play was stubbornly contested, and Norton, the ex-Australian, was more than once cautioned. No addition was made to the score before the interval. Half-time score: ü. i. f ts. I Hull 1 0 J! M6rthy-.r Õ g 'i From the re-start the Yorltshiremen looked like going through with a try, but the fine kicking of Paddison brought relief. Taylor then saved a forward rush which looked like yielding something tangible. The venue was changed when Palmer Griffiths failed to touch down behind the posts, but the situa- tion was saved by Wyatt Reed. A pretty mark- by Taylor stopped another fine for- ward rush, with: Norris leading. Penalties for infringement were given to both sides, and on two occasions Hull narrowly missed adding to their points, the leather falling under the bar. The visitors were persistent, however, in their attacks, and just on the call of time Morton, receiving in a good posi- tion, dropped a goal for Hull. There was no ¡ further scoring1. T<inal score: G. T. P'ts. I Hull 2 0 4 Merthyr 0 0 o COMMENTS. The weather conditions were simply abominable, and was absolutely agaiost a fine exposition of the Rugger code. The press arrangements were also quite inadequate," only a seat being provided for the pressmen, who were unprotected against the drenching rain and wind-swept ground, making it almost impossible for them to give an ade- quate description of the play. Perhaps the Northern Union committee will take this matter up. As to the play, it was fairly evenly divided, although Hull's superiority in the second half was more pronounced. They confined themee-lves chieflv- to long kicking1, And the Merthyr foirwancfe got more first possession, and were thru; enabled to put their backs into motion. Palmer Griffiths, the home full-hack, ht&rdjy realised expectations, but Wyatt, Reed and Paddison were quite cAafe an the third line. At Tialf Syd James and Harries made an edmira/ble pair. a/nd worked together splen- didly. Prr the forward division D. B. Dayies, the "oaptaan, proved a useful leader to a swund pack, amongst whom Norris and Datn Lewis deserve mention. For the visitors the most prominent men were Taylor, the custodian, and Moreton and Devereax (the ex-Australian three-quarters). The halves were somewhat week, ami the forwards failed against the Merthyr pack.*
