Soccer interest is focussed on the Yugo~lav t'eam, just arrived in Australia. The forthcoming "Tests" against them have already aroused much speculation among players and fans throughout the counfry. The key question is: "Just how good are the Yugoslavs?"

that they could not speak English and exptanations were not easy. But their fi~st "work-out" (on. top o~ a mayoral recept1on at that!) was 1mpreSS1ve. They "shook the kinks out" at the Sydney Cricket Grol1nd. Later, they defeatedNew South Wales-and confirmed the critics' opinions. Remember, they had then been in the country for only two days-:-and the N.S,W. team was almost a "Test" line-up. That makes it even more outstanding. And! it augurs well for their to~r. , News of the personaKt1es m the team comes through their interpreter, Mr. Alagich. They have Olympic players among them-Broketa (left back) and V ukas (outside left)) both played in the Olympic team in the final against Sweden at Wembley Stadium. Ivo Radovnikovic has played in 120 international matches. He is 29. The team is a light one and the players are young. Average weight is about 11 stone; all, except the captain (Matosic) , are in their twenties. They have expressedone hope-they want to be allowed, during the tour, to make.replace. ments of injured players. What the attituBe. of the Au~'ralian authorities on this will be remains to be seen. How good they are, also remains to be seen. Their early win over New South Wales is a pointer and one Sydney "expert" believes that they could give an side four go~ls start and still lickAustralian them. But Australian selectorsdon't think so. Neither, do Victorian selectors. They are confident in their boys. To the visitors they. just say: "The very best of luck." * * *

Prahran.. only one point behind again, together in fourth position. Yallourn, fighting to keep out of the relegation zone, may give serious opposition to Box Hill in this afternoon's match at Yallourn, and a win at this stage would certainty boost their prospects of remaining in the top division for season 1950. On the other hand, a defeat for Yallourn would make the relegation question a keen struggle right to the end of the league programme. Western Suburbs, at the bottom of the lad~ der" look to, be in a v,ery hopeless position to avo1d relegat1on. The1r match to-day at Sunshine Park against the divisional champions, Brighto&, gives them no hope of improvj~~ their position, and at this stage it seems ~ evitable that they must take their place in second grade next season. At Campbell Reserve, Moreland, the. home team will be out to avengethe 3-1 defeat it when Bradford met them at Footscray. This game appears to be the most interesting of the First Division contests this afternoon, and on their good showing last Saturday against Brighton, Moreland looks to be the winners. Middle Park will be the setting for another stirring contest, where Park Rangers will nave as its visitors, the improved South Yarra side. When these two teams last met it was a battle of ,~actics from start to finish with Rangers comIng out on top to the extent of 2-0. The young Rangers combination has shown rapid improvement since then, and them is indicated. .. another win for The Olympic Park contest will be between Prahran and Sunshine United, where the latl--" team will be giving its best in an effort) achievevi<:tory. 'In second last place, and wiTh only one point separating them from Y~llourn, who are just out of the relegation zone, Sunshine willl?ave r:nuch to gain from a win at this st~ge, espec1ally 1f Yallourn are defeated by Box

On the day of the match, transport will leave

the Preston ground for the M:C.G. In addition, eachsenior player will "adopt" a schoolboy and pay his expenses for the day. Other clubs . might copy. ~",;J ~ '-HARD GAME AT SURREY PARK. ~~;

A 2- 2 draw was a reasonableoutcome of this match at Surrey Park.
