Merthyr v Hull OPENING OF THE NEW GROUND I Sinoe last season, when they occupied the College Field, Merthyr Northern UniOtt Club have transferrd themselves to new and more convenient quarters. TIle enclosure now situated at Rhydycar has ample accommo- dation for a huge crowd. It is well appointed in every respect, and, moreover, 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 face of numerous difficulties. The club's new home was formally opened to-day, when the inau- gural match was played -,N-ith Hull. The fixture was apeciall^ attractive, inasmuch as for the past two years the visitors have figured as finalists in the Northern Union C'halleillge 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 valuable in the three-quarter line. The Merthyr ranks included three of the disbanded Mid-Rhondda. team-Palmer Griffiths, Norris, and Jones. 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; ha, Andeivon (captain) and Wallace; forwards, Herridge, Holder, Boy leu, Connet, Walton, and Havelook. Merthyr: Back, Palmer Griffiths; three- quarter backs, Wyatt Reed, P. Paddison, C. P. Lewis, and "Ponty" Thomas; half-backs, Syd Jones and W. Harris; forwards, D. c- Davie* (captain), Dan Lewis, Norris, 1\ Bevan, E. Jenkins, and T. Jones. Referee: Mr. Piatt (Swinton). THE GAME..1 I A good crowd was present, in spite UL fact that a violent storm of wind and rain swept over the ground, when Hull started in the face of the elements. The game wa's fairly evenly contested at the outset, neither side for a. time gaining much a.(hantage. After a penalty had failed Rogers .fJlull) was mbre successful from a mark, and put his side two points ahead  The home ?eam ?rked ah?.d and got w-eU into Hull territory, but Norton saved the situation. The game temperari y stopped   iiig to all in-jaumre ll kyted mporarily istopl>ed owing to an injury to Syd James. On the resumption, the homesters went awa.y in style, and gained a big slice of territory. A bunch of forwards got to the Hull line, and an almost certain soore was lost .through the leather striking the post and re-bounding into play It was distinctly hard lines. At this stage the Merthyr men were going strong The forwards, led by D. B. Davies, were most prominent in getting posseasion, b it they failed at the crucial moment. Play was stubbornly contested, and Norton, the cx-Australian, was more than once cautioned. No addition was made to the score before the interval. Half-time score: G. T. P'ts. I Hull 1 0 2 Merthyr 0 0 0 From the re-start the Yorksihiremen 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 Ritua- 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 side-- and on two occasions Hull narrowly missed adding to their points, the leather falling under the ba.r. 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 scoring. Final score: G. T. P'ts. I HuLl 2 0 4 3dertbyr 0 0 o COMMENTS. I The weather conditions were simply abominable, and was absolutely against a fine exposition of the Rugger code. The press a rrangeinents 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 HuH's superiority in the second half was more pronounced. They confined themselves chiefly to long kicking, and the Merthyr forwards got more first possession, and were thus enabled to put their backs into motion. Palmer Griffiths, the home full-back, hardly realised expectations, but Wyat.t, Reed and Paddison were quite safe in the third line. At half Syd James and Harries made an admirable pair, and worked together splen- didly. In the forward division D. B. Davies, th,o captain,, proved a useful leader to a sound pack, amongst whom Norris and Dan Lewis deserve mention. For the visitors the most prominent men were Taylor, the custodian, and Moreton and Devereux (the ex-Australian" three-quarters). The halves were somewhat weak, and the forwards failed against the Merthyr pack.
