Queen's Birthday Sport

Nelson representative teams didn't do too well in representative games played on Queen's Birthday. In fact the only win of any consequence-and a good win it was - went to the men's hockey side. It downed a Canterbury team 5-1 on a soggy ground at the Botanies. The women's hockey teams lost both games to Marlborough, the A-game 5-2 and the B-game 2-0. On the Rugby front Golden Bay-Motueka capitalised on many Nelson mistakes and played crisp Rugby to win 14-9.
