NATIONAL RULES TO-DAY'S TEAMS [football article]

Eastlake, which is undefeated, and, on the season's Australian football play, the most impressive of all teams, should have a strenuous engagement today, when it meets a strong Manuka side on the Kingston Oval. Eastlake.........
For various reasons Manuka's team will not be chosen until to-day. Maxwell is at present honeymooning but Les Brodie, has returned to the fold. After a strenuous motor tour across
Australia he is rejuvenated and hopes to make his presence felt. Bruce Cumpston, who played with Wesley College in Melbourne two years ago, will also appear and it is likely that Tom Riley will be available.
