This match attracted about 6000 spectators to the Sports Ground, and resulted in a hard earned win for South Sydney. Gilbert cleverly kicked off for South Sydney against a light breeze, Roy Norman taking the ball on the touch-line at the twenty-five. From the scrum South Sydney rushed to the Annandale line. There Butler obtained from the ruck, and passed to Darmody, on to McCabe, who hobbled the other backs by hanging on. Soon after this Darmody tried for a penalty from the twenty-five, the ball from a fine kick just shaving the post. South Sydney soon notching the first points. Darmody intercepted a lobbing pass by Grassier near half-way, and ran along | touch to the 25, where he in-passed to Hilliard, who was downed. McCabe, following on fast, toed the ball over the line, and beat the Annandale men in the race for it, scoring in the corner. Darmody's fine kick was beaten by the wind. South Sydney, 3 to nil. Kicked out, Annandale rushed to the South Sydney territory. An Anandale man was held up right on the line near the posts, but S.S. were penalised in good position for goal kicking, and Ray Norman easily piloted the ball over the bar. South Sydney, 3 to 2. Hilliard took a mark at Annandale 25, but Darmody's good kick again went wide. Very solid tackling nipped many passing bouts in the bud, and the game continued full of interest, with Annandale quite equalling the nippy men of South Sydney. Butler was penalised for not playing the ball fairly, but Bain failed to increase the score. Next, Butler snapped up a mark in the ruck inside the Annandale 25 and in front of goal, and this time Darmody landed the goal. South Sydney, 5 to 2. After some give-and-take play, marked by superb tackling by Annandale, the South Sydney pack on their side, of half-way heeled to Butler, who slung a swift pass baik to McCabe, who took it, then lost it, and before he could get away after re-fielding it, was smothered. A brilliant burst in attack by Annandale followed. Ray Norman secured, and, dashing away, transferred to Bain, to Fraser, as they sped for the right wing. The Annandale men threw the ball about near the South Sydney line, and veered in again from the wing. Munce, taking the last pass, forced his way over, with two South Sydney men hanging on to him. He scored in good position, but Ray Norman failed at goal, 5 points all. In play again, Darmody was bumped as he centred the ball, and this time he landed the goal with a fine kick from outside the 25. South Sydney, 7 to 5. The penalty was questionable, though given at the instance of the touch-judge. Challis now won applause for a fine run from his own 25, where he reversed Gilbert's attack by fielding the ball while going at his full pace, and, racing through the South Sydney team, kicked the ball when approaching Hallett. The latter fielded the ball near goal, but was downed by Ray Norman before he got his kick in, and was then penalised for not playing the ball. But Ray Norman failed to pilot the leather over the bar from an easy position. One of the forwards right on the line was held up and bodily lifted into touch in goal. A very even half now terminated, South Sydney leading by only two 2 points. Annandale had shown great tackling, and full-back Chalis real brilliancy.
Resuming, South Sydney attacked, but were twice penalised. Hallett was caught with the ball at South Sydney's twenty-five . There South Sydney were penalised for off-side play, but Bain failed in a very easy kick at goal. South Sydney returned to the attack, and were awarded a free in the corner, and Darmody kicked a fine goal. South Sydney, 9 to 5. Kicked out, Annandale attacked hotly at the South Sydney 25, but Hallett broke through, and kicked well down the field. Haddock now left the field with a broken collar-bone. Cann next started a fine rush from his own side of centre. It sped down the left wing, the passing and running being very good, and ended in Collier scoring after Davis and A. Butler had both handled the ball, but the last pass appeared forward. Darmody failed at goal. 12 to 5. Gressier tried for a penalty from the South Sydney 25. Then Roy Norman put in a spirited burst along touch, but his short punt was cleverly blocked by Hallett. Solid tackling still characterised the play, but Annandale (one short) were tiring. However, they put it one lively burst, and looked like scoring, but Davis cleared, rushing the ball to centre. South Sydney attacked, but faulty handling by the backs helped Annandale to keep them out. Soon the "no-side" sounded, leaving South Sydney victorious in a fine, strenuous game, by 12 to 5.

Presidents Cup - Round 1
v Eastern Suburbs, RAS Showground, Mon Jun 24 1:00pm
Th Inter-District Junior Rugby League match, in connection with the President's Cup competition, between South Sydney Juniors and Eastern Suburbs Juniors was played at the Agricultural Ground this afternoon. Easts kicked off, and attacked. They were driven back to their own 25, and Clark had an unsuccessful shot at goal. East's forwards took play past centre, and Barker, running strongly, was tackled on South's line. A free relieved the pressure but Barker took a pass smartly and ran to South's full-back. He, however, lost, the ball, and Staunton, South's wing three-quarter, snapped it up and kicked beautifully down field. Even play followed. Easts eventually got near South's line, and Flannery struggled over at the corner. Barker failed at goal. Easts 3, Souths, nil. Soon after the kick-out Easts were in difficulties. Arnand was tackled on his own line, and declining to part with the ball Souths were given a free. Horder kicked a goal, and the half-time scores were, Easts 3 points, Souths 2. In the second half Souths were defending for the first few minutes, and play was uninteresting. Horder intercepted a pass, and ran past centre, but he lost the ball, and it was booted back to South's 25, where they were penalised, and Barker missed the goal by half a yard. Then from a scrum Barker got possession, and passed to Flannery, who ran behind the goal. Barker's kick failed. East 6 points, South 2 points. South then put some vim into their work. Horder made a fine run, and the ball was sent along the three-quarter line. Stokes was the last, to get it, and he was loudly cheered for a splendid, try. The kick failed, and the full-time scores were - Easts 6, Souths 5.
