Trinidad's Chances To-day.

Probably the greatest intercolonial interest that this Island has ever had will be in the football match to-day at Sabina Park when Jamaica will face Trinidad for the first time in the history of the Colonies on the football field.

Trinidad has already aroused the enthusiasm of the Jamaica, crowd by their keen and sporting play—they have shown that, whilst they might not be as good technically as the All Jamaica side or the soldier side, they can make up for that deficiency by the speed and stamina of their forward line.

It is a curious reflection that, whilst the Trinidad Press told us that the defence of the side was the strongest ever produced by Trinidad, we here in Jamaica find that, whilst the defence is nothing wonderful, the pace of the forward line is bothering us all the time.

For to-day's game against Jamaica the Trinidad captain has picked the strongest side possible with the men he has here—the Jamaica side, although containing all of Jamaica's best players, is very badly arranged—so that is the position—so we will all go up to Sabina Park this afternoon to see a real Test between the two Colonies, both playing their best football, and the finest type of sporting football too!—and let the best side win!
