This was the double blues first loss for the season after a run of eight victories. Although tie win by Torrens did not affect Sturt s position at the head of the premiership list it should add much More interest to the remain aug matches of the qualifying round. Torrens Are now definitely a Premier ship possibility. Their fast and vigorous ground work and their sprinkling of j High fliers make them a Side equal to in the league Competition. To a Leader degree the defeat of nor Wood by port Aini Filenk s overwhelm ing Victory Over West give added Inte rest to the fight for places in the final four. The Young port Side gave a perform Ance full of Merit. They still have n Chance of participating in the Maior round. Glenelg still in fight in View of the difficult programme 1 ahead of them. Glenelg May not do Able to survive the qualifying round but i today s Victory has kept them in the fight. North and Norwood will provide the i match of the Day next saturday. Nor j Wood won when the teams met at the kor Wood Oval earlier in the season but they will find North a different proposition on this occasion. The red and Whitee have shown a consistent improvement in recent games. The veterans of the fide Are running into form and generally North Are regaining the Power that Malo them the outstanding team in the league Competition a the past three seasons. I Farmer s great mini at the Goa front makes him a menace to opposing defenders and he should take a match winning part in the matches to come. Norwood have not regained the form they showed against Sturt on the Holiday and the Lack of a reliable goal getter has hampered them in recent Ramea. North should win North who will have tie advantage of playing on their Home ground should win. Although Sturt were hard dressed by j Southeast week and went under to Tor j Rene today. Their Aerial Power and better balanced team work should prove too much for Glenelg at Dunlev next saturday. Port should defeat South at the Ade Laide Oval although the City team s form today should not be taken As a True re flex of their ability.
