On Saturday tiie International Football Match between England anù Wales was played at the St. Helen's Field, Swansea, ill the presence of about 3,000 spectators. The English team wa3 composed as follows, viz. :-Bi\el{, A. S. Taylor (Blaekheatli); three- quarter backs, W. M. Bolton (Royal Military College, Sandhurst), A. M. Enlllson (Oxford University), and G. C. Wade (Oxford University) half-backs, A. Kotlier- ham (Oxford University) and J. H. Payne (Broughton); forwards, g. T. G-urdon ( Kichmond), H. S. Fuller (Cam- bridge University), II. Vassal 1 (Oxford University), W. M. Tathani (Oxford University), H. F. S. Henderson (Blaekheatli), C. S. Wooldridge (Oxford University), C. Gurdon (1lieJ1IIIond), G. Tii m- son (Halifax), and G. Stan ina (Blaeklivath). The captain of the team was E. T. Gurdon, a famous player, who has been three times selected to represent EngUnd iâ¢: her match-s with Scotland. Of the others A. s5. Taylor, W. N. Bolton, J. H. Payne, C. Guidon, II. Vassall, 1\1 Tatham, and G. Thomson have all played before in international contests; and A. M. Evanson, G. C. Wade, and A. Kotherham have won for E themselves a high reputation at their university. In the match oil Saturday the three last-mentioned players rendered very valuable service for the visitors, and contributed much to the decisive victory achieved. The Welsh team was as follows, viz., .Backs, C. P. Lewis (Llandovery) and J. Bowen (Llanelly); three-quarter backs, W. B. Norton (Cardiff), J. Clare (Cardiff), and D. Gwynr. (Swansea); half-backs, C. H, Newman (Newport) and E. Treharne (Pontvpridd); forwards, G. F. Harding (New port), il. Gould (jfewpurt), G. L. Morris (SwanSd¡t), A. Cattell (Llaneily), T. E. Jones (Newport), T. H. Judson (Llandoven-), 'I'. J. S. Clapp (Nantyglo), alltl F. T. Purdon (Swansea). The umpires were :âEngland, Mr. F. C. Hill (president of the Rugby Football Union) and Wales, Mr. It. Mullock (lion, secretary, W elsh Football Union). The referee was Mr. Herbert. Punctually at 2.45 p.m. the rival teams ap- peared on the iield, and the game was commenced by the Welshmen kicking off with the wind against them By some good all-round play, the Welshmen got \vir,hin their opponenls' territory, and an excellent, attempt by GwynH to drop.,t goal compelled the Englishmen to touch down in self-defence, much to the gratification of the multitude of applauding spectators. But any hopes of the success of the home team, founded upon this encouraging beginning,were doomed to be disappointed. The territory of the Welshmen was soon invaded, and, from a pass by Tatham, Bolton lan in and secured a try away in the corner. Evanson made a splendid kick for goal, but failed to cover the cross bar,antl Wales touched down in self-defence. By some smart dribbling the leather was brought again into dangerous proximity to the home goal, and a scrimmage was formed opposite the posts. C. Newman got away with the leather, but was quickly tackled, and from another scrimmage Evanson escaped, and was only collared within a few feet, from the line. The visitors, however, were not to be gainsaid, and a judicious pass by liotherham gave Wade the oppor- tunity of capturing the position. With this try Evanson kicked an easy goal. Lewis re-started the "nail for Wales, and some exciting play followed in neutral ground. Then the visitors again crossed the line of demarcation, and a tight struggle took place within the 25. The Englishmen by rapid passing made repeated attempts to reach the point of attack, but they lost some ground, and the ball was sent in touch at the 25 flag. From the throw out, Wade made a run across the field, when lie was thrown in touch, and then the ball fell into the hands of Thomson, who succeeded in obtaining the try. Evanson kicked a poster, and Wales touched down in self-defence. The latter tactic was once moio resorted to by the Welsh- men, and then Wade,by a long run, in which he showed great pluck and skill in dodging, placed the ball well behind the posts. Evanson failed in the kick for goal, and the home team touched down once more. Before half-time was called the Wetshmen had touched down three times more in self-defence. On the change of ends the visitors had the wind, which had increased in force, against them, and this disadvantage told considerably throughout the remainder of the game. When time was called, the result of the match was a victory for England by two goals, four P ies, and seven touches down in self- defence, to Wales one touch-down in self-defence, but oil this result, decisive as it is, the Welsh team may be congratulated. It is an improvement on the previous match between England and Wales, and it is not too much to say that it is better than most persons expected. WALES AND BORDER COUNTIES CHALLENGE CUP. NORTHWICH VICTORIA v. WREXHAM HARE AND HOUNDS.âThis cup tie in the second round of the com- petition for the Wales and Border Counties Challenge Cup was played on Wrexham Racecourse on Saturday, In the first half the Northwich team scored three goals and the Wrexham men one (two of the Cheshire Club's goals being helped through by the Hare and Hounds' goal-keeper and one of their half-bacl{s). In the second half, which was played in a heavy downpour of rain and a thick fog, Northwieh twice lowered the colours of the home team, and the game thus ended in a will for the Cheshire Cup-holders by five goals to one. A protest has been lodged by the losers, on the ground that Tom- kinson, one ot the Northwich centres, is not qualified to play in the Welsh competition. Teams âNorthwich:â J. Palin, goal F. W. Hughes and E. Molyneux, backs W. H. Hughes and G. Vernon, half-backs J, Moore and B. Dobell, right wing; G..Plant (captain) and E. Turnbull, left wing; J. Tomkinson and A. Moore, centres; umpire, G.
