One fixture was against a XV representing Marlborough-Nelson-Buller-West Coast the match being played at Nelson and won by the home side, 12-3, the scores consisting of two tries, one conversion and one goal from a mark (counted 4 points) to one penalty goal. D. Dennehy (Westport White Star), W. D. McPike (Westport) and J. McNally (Westport) were Buller members of the successful team.
