  • Description

    GREAT BRITAIN DEFEATED NEW ZEALAND BY 15 POINTS TO NINE AT BRADFORD TODAY (SATURDAY) IN THE SECOND TEST, TO ENSURE VICTORY IN THE THREE MATCH SERIES. BRITAIN WON THE FIRST TEST SEVEN POINTS TO TWO.

    THE NEW ZEALANDERS PUT ON A SPIRITED DISPLAY, BUT COULD NOT MATCH BRITAIN'S ALL-ROUND SKILL.

    A MAGNIFICENT TRY BY BURGESS, AFTER ONLY FOUR MINUTES, PUT BRITAIN ON THE WAY TO VICTORY. ROBERTS AND SHELTON SET UP THE SCORING MOVES.

    INSPIRED BY EARLY SUCCESS, BRITAIN HAD NEW ZEALAND REELING BUT THE VISITORS HIT BACK WITH A PENALTY GOAL FROM FAGAN.

    THIS PUT NEW ZEALAND BACK IN THE GAME MOMENTARILY, BUT ANOTHER FINE TRY BY SHELTON GAVE BRITAIN A SIX-TWO LEAD AT THE INTERVAL.

    THE CROWD OF NEARLY 16,000 CHEERED NEW ZEALAND IN THE SECOND HALF AS BRITAIN MADE LITTLE ATTEMPT TO INCREASE THEIR LEAD. FAGAN KICKED ANOTHER PENALTY GOAL FOR NEW ZEALAND, TO NARROW THE MARGIN TO TWO POINTS. BRITAIN HAD PLENTY IN RESERVE AND SCORED A FURTHER TRY THROUGH STOPPED AND HALLIDAY. HOWEVER, GOAL POINTS WERE MISSED ON THREE BRITISH TRIES.

    NEW ZEALAND'S ONLY TRY CAME FROM BILL SCHULTZ AFTER AN "UP AND UNDER". FAGAN ADDED THE GOAL POINTS.

    THE SCORES AGAIN: GREAT BRITAIN 15, NEW ZEALAND 9.
