From the match programme:
Unashamedly we borrow the press description of the American Presidential election results as a cliff hanger when we look back on last Saturdays game with Cardiff. The suspense that joyfully exploded with Keith Jarretts successful penalty goal must have sent all and sundry rushing for their tranquillisers. Thirty valiant gladiators put their all into this combat. It is not our usual custom to mention the referee, but all praise to Mr. G. A. Jamison (Belfast) for his efficiency and calm. With fingers crossed (we admit to being superstitious) we look forward to the other double in the second half of the season. We have yet to play an English club away this season.
This afternoon the popular Tigers follow in the wake of Bristol, Blackheath, Gloucester and Wasps. Last Saturday they defeated Cambridge University, 9 points to 6 points. Previously they had defeated Oxford University, so both varsities can weigh up their chances on their performances against the Midland club. Last year we won by 10 points to 5 points on this ground and by 12 points to 8 points at Leicester.
The President of the Rugby Union for the current season is J. T. W. Berry, a former Leicester player, who was capped for England in 1939 against the other three home countries. We would be honoured should he visit us today.
Alan Evans, our promising inside-half is in the Birmingham area on a works course.
The Supporters Club intend running coaches to Abertillery on the 27th and to Llanelli on the 30th, please enquire in the office under the score-box. The floodlight game at Pontypool on Wednesday night resulted in a very narrow victory. Next Wednesday we are home to Cambridge University.
