From the 29 Oct 1931 Simcoe Reformer:
"After a lapse of several years, rugby again promises to become a major sport at SHS."

From the 12 Nov 1931 Simcoe Reformer:
"Simcoe High School rugby team defeated Paris 25-15. It was not difficult to select the stars. Ray Neil and Herbert Beagle were outstanding for the locals. The Paris team from the sidelines appeared to be composed about 90 per cent of Sylvanus Apps. Apps, who is well known for his ability as a sprinter and a harrier scored every Paris point."
