Match Notes

Like other matches in this round, conditions were extremely wet and slippery and heavy rain fell throughout. Additionally, the line umpires opted to perform their duties barefoot. The report from the Sydney Mail of this match doesn't mention any scorers, instead preferring to describe the match as mudlarking by the players. It even mentions that some players opted to "duck" their opponents, and even gave the referee a "ducking" after full time.
