Eastern Suburbs 21 (Kaufman 2, Ives, Holmes, Watkins tries; Oxford 3 goals) beat Glebe 5 (Ogle try; Redmond goal) at Sydney Cricket Ground.

" F.Burge Kicked off for Glebe, and play was soon taken on Eastern Suburbs 25’ Caples, with a good line kick from a penalty, relieved. Murphy responded with a brilliant line kick, and after relief by Wright, strenuous forward work ensued. Glebe, however, as a result of good play by James, again got within striking distance, but Redmond missed a penalty from an easy position. Glebe were not to be denied, and a neat movement between James and Ogle ended in the latter scoring a try Redmond’s attempt at goal was a fine effort, but the ball hit the upright post and bounced infield. Glebe 3-0. Haddock was hooking in superior fashion to Little, but faulty hands by Glebe backs and determined tackling by East Sub prevented Glebe gaining much ground. A great movement, In which the ball was handled by Holmes, Steel Norman, and Ives, saw the Latter cross over for a try, which Oxford failed to convert. The scores was now 3 all. Invigorated by this success, Eastern Suburbs attacked with great vim, and but for a faulty pass by Norman Wright probably have crossed Glebes' line. Penalties were frequent, Glebe being mostly at fault. The reason appeared to be that the outside front row men would not allow the ball to be thrown into the scrum just on half time 0xford kicked a splendid goal from a free, and at the interval Eastern Sub 5 led by Glebe 3. Within a few minutes of the resumption of play, the ball was sent to Wright, who, after a fast run along the wing, centred by a cross-kick. The big and speedy Eastern Suburbs' forward, Holmes, followed on the kick and scored a try for 0xford to convert. Eastern Suburbs 10-3. It was a spectacular movement, and was appreciated by the spectators. unlike the play in the first half, the game became fast and open, and passing rushes by both sides were freely indulged in, Kaufman was showing to advantage for Eastern Suburbs, and displayed initiative in attack. He scored the next try for Eastern Suburbs through following on after a kick from Wright. No goal resulted. The scores were: Eastern Suburbs, 13-3. Eastern suburbs were again attacking within a few minutes and Watkins crossed in after Caples and Norman had made the opening. Oxford's sure foot piloted the ball over the bar. Making the scores Eastern Suburbs, l8 to 3. At last Glebe got going, and carried play into Eastern Suburbs' 25, from where Redmond landed a coal from a free. Eastern Suburbs, 18 to 5. The Glebe backs repeatedly failed to gain ground when they were In possession, the ball being merely taken across the field. Gray, who was playing centre, was an exception and frequently pleased by his straight running. Kaufman by a splendid[?] run, left the Glebe backs standing, and scored an unconverted try Eastern Suburbs 21-5. The closing stages of the game were played in a failing light. Eastern Suburbs were in the ascendance, and at the close were victors by 21 points to 5."....Sydney Morning Herald.
