There was only one inter-school match held this year, in which Monaro met and defeated Bega by 29 to 23. Although both teams played well, Monaro did not have a great deal of teamwork, and this kept down the score. The chief scorers for Monaro were Frank Hickling 10 points and Peter Barns 8 points.
This year, however, the High School has entered two teams in the town competition, one in the "A" grade and one in the "B" grade. The experience gained in this competition will be invaluable for inter-school matches and as well as this a great improvement of team play can be observed.
The "A" grade team, in the second round of the competition, are placed fourth, and the team anticipates a further improvement on this position. The "B" grade team which has more teams to compete against is doing quite well also and is coming third. Although neither team expects to win, the players are gaining much experienced which will tell in later competitions.
