This was the event they had all awaited:

The qualifications of tossing the caber

When each man strives to out toss his neighbour.

What could be done? The caber was broken!

But before long Judge Webster had spoken:

All contestants through to the final would go,

Heralding for Sunday an even more exciting show!
