And spirits Thompson s bad lock injures left shoulder. Spirited boxing contest marred. But for the fact that Thompson injured his left shoulder Early in the third round Unley stadium patrons would have been provided with a spirited boxing contest. As it was the bout came to a close Early in the sixth round through or. L. Pellew pronouncing Thompson unfit to proceed by not being Able to have the use of his left when Early in the sixth round referee Chris. Constantine came Between the boxers and questioned Geo. Thompson regarding the condition of his left harm it was apparent to All that that was the end of the contest. Or. Constantine requested or. Pellew to make an examination of Thompson s Arm and the sporting Medico after a Brief examination gave it out that Thompson s Arm was absolutely useless to him and that it was futile for him to continue. Thompson he said had no possible Chance of Success although be Thompson was perfectly willing to continue boxing. Everybody present appreciated or. Constantine s action in seeking the advice of or. Pellew. From the third round it was apparent to All observers of the fight that Thompson had suddenly lost the fighting use of his most useful weapon. It was hanging More or lers Limp by his Side being of no use either As an agent of attack or defence. Lloyd was the first to make his appearance and it was seen that he was a lot bigger since he last appeared before an Adelaide stadium audience. He was followed immediately afterwards by Thompson who compared with Lloyd presented a slim and very Boyish looking appearance. The weights were Given out As so they were to Ali appearances Avith All the catch in la cd s favor. The announcer on inquest said that Lloyd pulled the beam at 12st. 12 fib Why the three quarters of a Pound was specified is hard to understand because if it had Lien stated that Lloyd was j 3.13 it would just As readily have been believed Rind Thompson Only tipping 1 it up to list 101b. The first round opened i tickle with Thompson shooting a Rood left to Lloyd Mje and room it diag with a Short right Hook. This he repeated several times before they came in close. Thorn icon was vory Quick d hi.1footwork very neat. When together it was obvious that Lloyd s strength was great compared to Thompson s. The latter however showed Clever boxing ability and More than held his own at close Range lighting. The second round was very similar to the first and in it Thompson showed that he had summed up his opponent because he boxed with More Confidence and variety. He completely puzzled Lloyd and was piling up a Lindy Lead on Points. But the spectators were no to be riven a treat by sparkling boxing. 1 he Early part of the third round a Thompson lose the use of that Quick and lightning like left of his. Then the spectators witnessed a plucky lad with his Back against the Wall fighting with Only one hand an opponent whom he was conceding 6jh. By Clever and Quick footwork Thompson was still More Tolian holding Bis own at Long Range. He landed Good right punches to Lloyd s head and if one had got Home fair and Square the latter would have known by about perhaps he would t. Bui when they came together things were All Lloyd s Way. And he got Home some Good punches. The referee had no course open to him except the one he adopted and the Only real disappointed person in the building was the one whom the action concerned most Thompson. I tied showed commendable sportsmanship in not taking advantage of Thompson s disability by refraining from hitting the injured member when he realised its condition Thompson strips almost an Ideal i middleweight. He is a Brainy Boxer. And possesses a natural fighting instinct that will carry him far and ii should not be Long before he secures the middleweight title of Australia if Given the Chance to contest same. M in addition to the main contest three Good preliminaries were staged. During the last three or four weeks the stadium management have been very successful in their selection of Chese contests and they have mostly keen very evenly contested arid exciting and interesting to watch. The first affair on monday last was Between Norman and Lawn. These lads gave a rather Lively spar on a recent thursday night at the stadium and it was reckoned then that Tiey would provide a Good go for a prelim. They mixed it freely but Lawn was the More rugged and gained the decision. Their weights were announced As about the same the second scrap was Between Brown 8.4, and per Mari 8.4. Brown put it All Over Perman in the first but Perman evened matters in the second and made Brown stand off. The toys As though the final figures will show Torrens 1 Sturcz 2 Norwood 3 � ports 4 in the Leal round Iii that order. Torrens and nor Woods meeting m the first Semi and sturts and ports in the second. Can Norwood go top ? nor Woods last two runs have evidenced their great form they having beaten both Leams who hold higher positions a the list sturts and Torrens. In both these leu Hes for the greater part of the Day there has been Only one team in the game so convincing was the Norwood superiority. On saturday against Torrens they were flagging towards the end by the game Iii tighten up their training a Good Deal and should Stit ii then the team work. But what a task is before them to reach the premiership. Assuming the positions to be As forecaster they must needs defeat Torrens twice and the winners of the port Sturt match also. It will be recalled that in 1920 they were set a similar task and failed Only in the last match against port. In this season they went from fourth to playing off in the Challenge match and the task proved too great. This season perhaps cannot be compared with 1920. For the team is composed of much younger men who might Well stand the Strain in addition to which at the present they Are blessed with a match winning player at Centre always an acquisition to any team. The game leads off from the Bounce More often than from another part of the Field and Lill has now decisively beaten both Richardson and Crown. In addition also in Mutton and Bent Norwood possess Forward men who can land the goods. It is of course too Early to say that nor Woods will be premiere in this their third year in succession but they have to be beaten by the team that goes top.

For three quarters of the game the Torrens were generally outplayed and though in the last Quarter they finished strongly yet the result was doubt. The methods of the to Aras were vastly different for he reas the Torres worked hard for of very Point gained playing the Ball right into the goal Mouth the nor Woods scored chiefly from Brilliant flashes Down the ground from end to end without missing a pass. In two departments the nor Woods held their opponents safely at Centre and on their half Back line. Across the Centre supposed to be the Torrens stronghold they were badly beaten. Lill absolutely outdated ail opposition. During the first half Brown was beaten in the air and was always Yards behind the tall Norwood in going to meet the Ball. Lill s judgment was never at fault. His domination of the game at Centre was the outstanding feature of the match. Symonds Norwood s Wingman completed the Torrens rout in this department. He held his opponent Mccarthy hopelessly beaten and later in the game More than held his own with oaten who was changed Over to Scop him. Hepburn put up a More than solid performance in replacing Gearen injured by a kick in the Ruck.
