ArKH. 1, 1951 The Sunday Herald Sporting Section r ACE EUVBN RELAXING AFTER TOUGH RACE 1 ffo form ThTF .J Leading Officials , i 4f J. rw ---i2C-r, v Wot Opposed AN and country clubs were well represented at the annual meeting of the N.S.W. Women's Basketball Assocbition. . THE SUCCESSFUL Newingtori crew rests on its oars and watches the King's narrowly beat Sydney High for second place. Scene from the schools' maiden fours at Riverview Gold Cnp regatta yesterday. . is. J?OR two years keen judges have argued back and forth as to whether jockeys are good judges of form. Each side trill snap at this story. Last Monday night jockey Neil Watterson telephoned trainer Jack Connick seeking the ride on Beau China in Wednesday's Point Piper Handicap. He argued that he knew the horse and would be a good thing to win on him. He was asked to ring back next day as no decision had been finalised about a rider. He phoned twice on Tuesday, was finally told that the connections bad decided on Jack Thompson who, after thinking it over, agreed to take the mount The disconsolate Watterson, unfashionable on Thompson standards, reckoned himself to be Sydney's unluckiest jockey. Beau China was heavily backed from 7-1 to 9-2 in the Point Piper Handicap, only to be beaten half a neck by the 2S-1 outsider, Johnny Zero. Cormick, turning away as the numbers went up, asked a friend: "Who rode the winner?" He was told: "Neil Watterson." -Watterson had fluked the Johnny Zero ride on the course. Invasion OC If.L. Strongholds AT their meeting last Monday, Rugby League administrators bad a lot or bitter mates ro say about a certain Brian Palmer. Mr. Palmer, a former grazier from Wellington, N.S.W., is also a member of the Rugby Union manaeement committee and a directing force in that code's schools' committee. . What is riling the League is that he has swung almost every school on the North Shore over to Rugby Union. More recently he has invaded the League's own strongholds of Balmain and Newtown wnere ne has induced four schools to introduce Union. As one flustered League official put it "It's not cricket-" How To Win At Raring BOOKMAKERS are reported to have won half a million pounds over the first two days ot tne syooey lup meeting. By the prices they bet in some of the races on Wednesday .they made it clear tbey had no intention of giving any of it back. Just examine them: All Aged Stakes. 11 to 8 Achilles, 7 to 4 Oversight, 5 to 2 Donegal, 50 to 1 Royal Assignment (only starters). Cumberland Stakes. 6 to 4 Midway, 7 to 4 Playboy, 2 to 1 Freedom (only starters). Wisely He Took Wallis's Ad vice FRANK MEIZER, a grazier from GooDdiwiixH (Q.) came to Sydney this month to see the Royal Show and the yearling sales. But he had another purpose. He had read a par. of mine about the ignominious departure from boxing of veteran referee Joe Wallis. He said: "I fought four preliminaries under Joe Wallis back in 19J2. I thought I was going to be another Les Darcy. "After my fourth bout Wallis sent for me. He said. 'Son. give this game away. You're no good and you're going to get your brains knocked out. "I took his advice and went back to the farm. To-day rm in the money. Why don't they give Wallis a benefit as a send-off. They can count on me for a donation and I might surprise them what I can throw in. That is Meizer's thought, but it is an idea.

RandwickCrushes Gordon Defence Randwick, scoring six tries "to one, surprised with the ease of its win over Gordon in the Rugby Union trial at Randwick yesterday. Randwick was superior in all departments, except goal-kicking, winning by 23 to 15. The Cordon backs lacked confidence under pressure, fumbling vital passes and missing tackles. An exception was five-eighth Ken Hopkins, who alone showed ability to pene trate. Randwick lock forward Keith Cross figured in several brilliant movements with five-eighth Em-merson and winser Ramsay. RANDWICK, 23 (Ramsay 2. Payne. Wtnoimt. Emmcrsoa. Cross, tries; Booth. nn Mill.
