Round 6 sees Blues and Bulldogs consolidate hold on top two spots

In the second game, both sides included players from the Otago Riot, who had come up to Canterbury to impress the selectors of the NPC team. The Eagles never fired a shot all day and were taught a football lesson by the top team. The Bulldogs welcomed recruit Chris Thornton, who had just played in the Grand Final of the Ballarat League, in Victoria.

Final scores: Christchurch Bulldogs 17 10 112 defeated The Mid-Canterbury Eagles 3 5 23
