Briggs And DaCosta.

I see a note from Mr. Briggs in yesterday's issue stating that he has never played on the left wing position. My impression was that, when he first came her from Cuba and was coaching at St. George's, that he practised in that position—however, he must know best about that.

That being so, it seems to me that the best thing to do would be to try out Huntley DaCosta as left winger—he has played in the left wing, even if Briggs hasn't, and although really a right winger would probably do far better at left ouside than anyone else at present before the Selectors.

Trinidad And Montego Bay.

While I sympathise with Montego Bay in their efforts to get the Trinidad team over there for a match, I do not see how it would be at all possible under the conditions of the present tour. Time alone makes it prohibitive—the Trinidadians have 7 matches on their schedule; if they had to put in three days in the Montego Bay trip it would make the programme altogether too full.

It might be suggested that the two Club matches should be dropped, and a Montego Bay match substituted—but here the question of expense would make it entirely prohibitive. Montego Bay could not possibly pay what the Association anticipate getting from the two Club matches here; and, on top of that, pay the expenses of sending the team over to Montego Bay as well.
