ENGLAND V. IRELAND. 060 KING PRESENT. GREAT GAME AT TWICKENHAM. Saxons' Five Point Win. The King's intima-fion of his intention to be present at Twickenham on Satuxday af- ternoon added a unique element of interest to the struggle for International]. Rugby honours betw^aeii England a.nd Ireland, for both countries this was the seoond i'nftema- tional engagement of the season, the saane enclosure having been the scene of iiug- land's narrow victory over Wales a month ago, whdle the representatives of the sister iaie have met and conquered Frautoe. The Eagtisihoien took the field strong favourites to-day, but muicth depended upon tJh<e effect of the changes made with a view to strengthening the pack, wtiniah was previ- ously overplayed in the scrum. TThe inolu- adoai of tihe stuirdy United Services fomvards, H. C. and A. L. Harrison, in lieu of Bull and Greenwood, made for increased solidar- ilty at forward, whore lay the ohief danger of defeat, for Ireland's strength hfWI always lain in its scrummagers. England restored F. E. Oakley aaid W. J. A. Davies to favour at half at the epensae of the little Leicester pair, Wood a.nd Taylor, while in the opposi- tion camp Lloyd wrs partnered by a new "cap" in MoNamiaira., of Cork University Oallege. The ret.acinin;g of the finiglirih threes" gaivc genneal saitiisfaction, and great disappointment was felt when it was announoed that Watson's injury at Black- heath on Monday neoassitated his retire- ment from the teaan. However, A. D. Roberts, his substitute, scored two tries against Ireland two seasons ago, and be was again expected to do well, particularly as on the former occasion, as on this; he was playing with Poailton for partner. The Irish three-quarters could not be reg,arooo. so effective a scoring force as their rivals. In Montgomery, Ireland had a full- back who has well earned his plaoe by fine work in the inter-Provincial teals, but, un- like Johnston, he is not yet one of t*he world's great figures in tihe position.

His Majesty the King and Mr. Asquith weire amongst those who witnessed the encounter, and at the start the captains of the two teams were presented. England kicked off against a stiff breeze, and Ireland pressed. Scrums followed close to the English line. Clune was finely grassed by Johnston near the line, and Lloyd dropped a fine goal six minutes from the opening. The Irish pack w-ore. great in the scrum nnd in the loose. QJIN- BEAT JOHNSTON in a raoe fOT the ball, and scored a fine try. Lloyd failed to convert-. A fine kick by Johnston saw England for the first time in Ireland's territory. A splendid three- quarter movement ended in Davies sending to Poulton. D. Roberts scored far out Chapman made a good but fruitless effort to convert. An- other run ensued and Roberts grassed Mont- gomery. The home pack now improved. Lowe received and Chapman dashed through and scored. Harrison missed the goal at an awkward angle. A fine run by Rob. erta was spoilt by Oakley kicking on. Adams, however, was nearly over, Chap- man effecting a fine tackle. Llovd mis- kicked a.nd Quinn just touched down in time. Tamer football followed, and England pressed and almost scored on several occa- sions. HALF-TIME SCORE. IRELAND.—1 dropped gl., 1 try (7 points). ENGL.A ND-2 tTie3 6 pointe).
