yards off. Quick as lightning he seized the leather," and made for the goal-line which was only ten or fifteen yards away. Breathless with excitement and exertion, his head still throbbing and buzzing from the effects of his terrific collision with the opposing forwards, Bill triumph- antly crossed the line, and planted the "oval" right behind the goal-posts. He expected to be greeted with roars of applause. Judge of his chagrin when he found his feat was greeted with yells of derision, with boos and groans and cat- calls. What could the matter be? Poor Bill nearly sank into the ground with shame when at last it dawned upon him what he had done. In the confusion caused by the stunning blow he had received on the head, he had crossed his ?wn line, and touched down in self-defence" lristead of scoring a try for Wales A few minutes later, half-time was called. The captain went up to Bill, and whispered It was magnificent, but it was not sport If you had not touched down, they would have been over our line. It was a daring thing to do, and you will be nicely slated for it in the Press. Feeling is running strong against you, and you ftiust be prepared for a rough time of it the next half." t) Bill tried to look as if he had meant it all, as if it were part of his theory of half-back play. £ ie said nothing, but registered a vow that if brawn and muscle could do it, he would retrieve his fame before the call of time. Neither side had scored at half-time, and the second half settled down into a ding-dong, defensive fight. The captain was right in his atlticipations, -Bill Isaac had a rough time of it in the second half. He was always carefully hatched. No sooner did he touch the ball than two or three stalwart Saxons were upon him. He was powerless against such tactics, and the terrible strain began to tell even on his iron frame. Nearer and nearer came the time for the referee's final whistle, neither, side had scored, and Bill Isaac had done nothing to justify his place in the team. There's unlucky we are, boys cried a Shoni in the crowd. If we only had Llew bach playing for us to-day instead of that Bull of Bashan from Llanelly, there's a score we would make." Yes," responded another, I was never see such a muff before. Our little Ianto could play better than him." "Now, he's got it cried another, as the ball came skimming into Bill Isaac's hand at the half-way flag. What happened afterwards still evokes the lyrical enthusiasm of middle-aged footballers. They cannot speak of it even now without a tremor in their voice and a sparkle in their eye. At last Bill's chance had come, and nobly did he rise to the opportunity. He crowded into a few glorious seconds the renown of a lifetime. Down the field he raced, with the light of coming triumph in his eye. Three or four forwards, men of solid Saxon beef, tritd to oppose his progress, and were hurled to right and left with the might of a Herculean arm or the iron strength of a Titanic chest, or the impact of a sinewy thigh. Halves and three quarters were scattered like chaff before the wind. Nothing could stop or delay the magnificent, the irresistible onrush of that heroic figure. Obstacles only existed to be sur- mounted, he brushed all impediments aside with the masterful hand of a demi-god. There only remained the full-back between him and his goal. The full-back waited,-cool, wary, expert, un- ruffled, ready to spring at the formidable giant. Bill seemed to give him no thought, but raced full-pelt straight at him. In breathless silence the crowd looked on. Was Bill going to swerve, or was hegoingto send the full-back spinning like the rest ? The back crouched low, his short figure appearing insignificant when opposed to Bill's majestic limbs. Then a strange thing happened. When Bill got to within two yards of the full- back, and before the old campaigner could spring upon him, Bill leapt high into the air, cleared his opponent, and before the surprised back had had time to turn round, Bill had crossed the line and scored the first try ever recorded for Wales The scene that followed, as the reporters well said next Monday, "baffled description." Grey- headed men danced like youths, grave business men shook hands with the nearest bystander with the ardour of undying friendship, laughter and tears commingled in the crowd, and at last, when the try was converted and time was called, the huge crowd gave vent to its emotions by singing Hen Wlad fy Nhadau and Sospan fach." Bill Isaac was the hero of the day. Those who jeered at him at the beginning of the game carried him shoulder high to the pavilion. He had redressed the slights of yer.rs, he had restored the self-respect of foothill Wales. His try is still looked upon as the starting point of a new era in the history of the Rugby game in Wales, and he will go down to the generations yet to come as the man that got the try at Newport." "Well, Isaac," said, the captain to him in the pavilion, "you were a frost the first half, but that try of yours explains why the papers cracked up your play during your Yorkshire tour." "But I was never in Yorkshire in my life 1" exclaimed Bill.
