Match Notes

The Sydney Mail report doesn't indicate which Gormley scored for Western Suburbs, but as records indicate that L. Gormley never scored a try, I have assumed it is R. Gormley who scored in this game. There is a goal missing for South Sydney in the first half. I believe it may be for Levison's try, which it doesn't mention the conversion for.
