From the 29 Oct
"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."
