Match Notes

According to the Sydney Mail, the ground for this game was in "soddened" condition. The report also says that North Sydney only started with 10 players, and were "later" joined by two others. Albert Broomham was referred to as "Broomhead". One goal for North Sydney in the second half is not mentioned, and is likely the conversion for the try scored by McCarthy as it is not indicated whether the conversion was successful or not as Mathieson scored immediately afterwards.
