The 1st XI end the round with a convincing win

The HIBS 1st XI proved the value of the preseason tour to Brisbane by easily taking care of the Wellington College 2nd XI in the final game of the first round, played last Saturday, the 22nd of October .  The difference between the two sides suggested that the Wellington College team did not enjoy anywhere near the same preparation as the HIBS boys, for the resumption of the season.  The win made no difference to HIBS position on the table, and they are destined to play in the Minor round for the remainder of the season against the other bottom 6 placing teams of the first round.
