Rugby League WORKINGTON HAVE WORRIES And supporters suffer By a Special Correspondent West Cumberland Rugby League enthusiasts, jealous of the reputation earned by Workington Town only a few seasons age, are unhappy at the state of affairs summarised by Swinton's victory, 18-10, at Workington. The Lancashire side was not out standing, but at least it had thrust and enthusiasm, two qualities lacking in this present Workington .team. Some of the club's difficulties were aooarent from the list of twelve iniui'ed players, and the manager's notes in the frogramme. To make matters worse, den and Roper failed to pass fitness tests shortly belore the KicK-on. inis meant Workington had to piny Smith, a junior scrum half, against the redoubtable Cartwright. Smith's inexperience occasionally was obvious but he was not to blame for Workington s defeat ; indeed Faulder; his partner, more often was at fault. When Workington won possession from set scrums Moss, Eden s deputy, was outhooked 21-13 bv Roberts Faulder showed little inclination to get his three-quarters moving.

The standard ot play improved towards the end of the match, and Stopford and Smethurst scored further tries for Swinton.

Leatherbarrow took advantage of a kick ahead by ONeil to score Workington's ' other try. for which Edgar added a goal. WORKINGTON TOWN McAvos: Balhifalla. 0Nsll. Lratbrrnanow. Foord: Faulder.

Lawn Tennis PENALTY SAVES TOTTENHAM Tottenham , Hotspur, the only unbeaten team in the First Division, had to fight hard to draw 1-1 with the City at Leicester. - A penalty by Jones enabled Tottenham to keep their lead in this section. A point behind, and sharing second place, are Wolverhampton Wanderers, . Arsenal, and Burnley all of whom won at home, although Everton held their own in the first half at Wolverhampton. Chelsea's several changes resulted in a 3- 1 win at Fulham. while Newcastle United won 3-2 at Leeds after being two down. Manchester United were beaten 4- 0 at Preston where Finney scored twice, and are only three points better off than Birmingham City who are at the bottom. Manchester City maintained their improvement by winning 2-1 against Blackburn Rovers at Moss Side. Luton Town " were beaten a'gain. this time at Sheffield where Curtis and Farltbam each scored a goal for Wednesday without reply. West Bromwich Albion are still seeking their first awav win of the season. They lost 1-4 at West Ham, Musgrove scoring twice for the winners. Aston Villa keep on winning a 1-0 victory at home over Leyton Orient was ' their fifth in succession and they are two points better off than Cardiff City at the head of the Second Division. The biggest score of the afternoon came in this section, Charlton Athletic beating Derby County 6-1. Kiernan scored a hat-trick.- A good win by Bristol City over Middlesbrough lifted some of the tension. from-Ashton Gate. One of -the biggest surprises is the continual failure of Portsmouth. They lost-at home ,0-2 to Ipswich Town, and hare bottom place with Lincoln City who were beaten at home by Cardiff. - Hull City are finding the going harder than in the. Third Division, and they lost by the only goal of the game at Rotherham. Stoke City and Brighton and Hove - Albion also went down on their own grounds. . Norwich City take precedence over Halifax Town at the head of the Third Division -by virtue of a better goal average. Winning 43 at Brentford, they showed all the fighting spirit that gave - them such a splendid run in the F.A. Cup last' season. Millwall, like Tottenham, remain unbeaten. They drew at Barrow in -spijte of an injury to Ackerman. but they takeysecond place to Walsall in the Fourth: Division. - .""Ireland's . team, which was beaten 6-2 at Bournemouth last season, included eight newcomers for the opening amateur international match of the season against England at Cliftonville. Ireland hoped the experience of Forde, Bar, and Clarke :wo'uld steady the new players, but the home team did not impress until late in the second-half. By her spirited play in this period, Ireland just deserved to snatch a draw when Gillespie headed a ' eoalsixteen minutes from the end. This-was in reply to a well-taken goal by Harding near the end of the first half. Trimby,"- England's' inside right repeatedly was applauded for his constructive play.

Segura he won by 4-6, fi-4. 3-6, 6-3, 8-6 after two hours 32 minutes. After only ten minutes rest. Anderson was back on court for a doubles match which lasted two hours, but this time he was on the losing side, for he and his partner. A. Cooper, were beaten in the play-off for third place doubles by F. Sedgman and M. Rose by 14-16. 6-2. ti-'J. Anderson's singles final with Segura was a memorable one, and not until the last tew games ot the deciding set did he reallv get on top of an opponent sixteen years older than himself. The match more than made up for some of the week's earlier disappointments, when Hoad and 1 Sedgman, who were seeded to meet in the final, were beaten in the second round, and Rosewall and Trabert were surprised in the semi-finals by Segura and Anderson, respectively. The doubles final was won by Trabert and Hoad, who beat Rosewall and Segura. 11-9, D-7. 6-2, in 100 minutes. MISS HIRD'S TITLES Miss P. Ilird, won three titles in the iniprnntional 'lawn tennis tournament at Barcelona. She beat Miss M. H. Coronado (Spain), 8-6. 6-2 in the women's singles final and. partnered by N.

Test matches against the touring South African cricket team in England next season may be limited to 24 hours over four days with an extra dav avail able for time lost through rain. The South African Board of Cricket Control decided at the week-end to put this before M.C.C.. who, as hosts, will make the final decision. A. D. Nourse, a former South African captain, will, be manager of the team of fifteen. The names of the team, which leaves here on April 16 and returns on September 15, are expected to be announced in February. South Africa has increased.the number of her selectors from three to live. They are : R. Convenor, A. Melville, L. Tuckettf R. Wooler. and J. D. Lindsay. Nnnr who rpttrps this vnar ns national selector, is considered by many to have been South Africa's greatest batsman He led South Africa in 15 Tests ten against England and five against Australia and in his 23 years of first-class cricket scored 12,472 runs. He was a selector in the last two series against Australia and England and wall bring a wealth of experience to - his onerous job. The South African proposal to limit Tests to four days did not take English authorities by surnnse. The duratuon or Tests eenerally is on the agenda for the Board of Control meetdne in November and it is likely to be discussed also at an earlier meetina of the M.C.C. cricket subcommittee. It is understood, too, that the President of the South African Board of Control. A. Coy. had unofficial discussions with M.C.C. on the duration of nest season's Tests when he wan in England during the summer for the Imnerial Cricket conference- The appointment of Nourse as South Africa's manager Iras been welcomed. "We are deliehted to hear that Dudley Nourse is comim;." said G. C. Griffith, the M.C.C. assistant secretary. Reuter.

Aitrron-on-Meney BRITAIN CARELESS OF DETAIL By our Swimming Correspondent Great Britain suffered her second defeat of the season at the .hands of' Holland at Coatbridge at the 'week end. But the margin of 93 to 92 points was a great improvement on the result in Waalwijk in July when Britain was beaten 112 to 89 points. Closer attention to dtail and the result could have been different; However, slow starts, bad turns, and over-confidence all have their price in a close contest. For example, C. Dosden, who was left at the start of the 100 yards butterfly, should have gained the crucial second place behind Voorbij. Instead iageroerg, tne European cnampion. Dear, her by three tenths of a second and so brought Holland maximum points. The hopes of N. Steward's beating Gastelaars, the European record holder, in the 100 yards free-style collapsed at the first turn. Both used somersaults, but the lithe Dutch student was round in a flash while Steward, who is bigger, made a laborious effort of her turn. The timekeepers generously gave both the same time. 5B.76sec although Gastelaars. who broke the Scottish all-comers record, was a clear winner. Miss Steward equalled the British native record ot D. Wilkinson. Over-confidence seems the onlv explanation for the defeat of G. Sykes. who had been beaten only once in .five internationals this year, by Wagner, European bronze medallist of East Germany. Sykes lost the 100 yards backstroke on Saturday to de Jorig, whom in July he defeated by 1.5sec. Sykes aumiuea aiierwaras : x ieit. nne. i didn't look at de Jong. I was concentrating on Jiskoot in the middle lane." This was one event Britain had expected iaj wm anu ine tune oi me winner, 59.7sec., was 2.7sec. outside Sykes's British record. These, moreover, are not the onlv swimmers who need to look to the little things. The British women's 4 x 100 yards tree-style team which lost to Holland threw away its chances on takeovers and turns. Even so. it still achieved a British best time of 3min. 56.59ec., while Holland broke the acouisn an-comers record with a time of 3min. 55.1sec. A. Lonsbrough. the Empire champion, beat Den Haan, the EuroDean chnmnmn in the women's 200 yards breast-stroke in spite ot swallowing water on every lap. Clarke and Kendrew gained Britain s second maximum points of the maxen wnen uiey came nrst and second m the 100 yards free-style. MEN ion yabivs FnFEjervr.r i u j,-. - ... ,. . "'. 1. P.

The play at first was fast and keen and brought neither side a decisive advantage Then after half an hour a break down the left wing by Mathieson and a quick heel from a loose scrum Droupnt mamie a try uum a trass Gibson, but Stalker failed to convert it. Still less happily Manchester now lost Eimmer, their left wing, who suffered concussion from a hard tackle and took no further part in the game. The Glasgow three-quarters continued to look dangerous. Wylie was outstanding among the forwards, and at the interval the visitors still led 3-0. Early in the second half Manchester were awarded two penalties, but Parkinson succeeded in kicking a goal only from the second. More Manchester pressure then followed, but after some judicious touch-kicking by the Glasgow half-backs the Glasgow forwards dribbled' over from a line-out and Johnson touched down for the try. Stalker again failed to convert from' near touch. Outstanding players for Manchester were Nelson. Lee. LeCoiL. Bell, and MacCallun. MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY. Htsrltton: Parkinson. Nelson.
