As England were, the chief honour goes to the Rose, as they have not sustained a single defeat during the season.

Both sides had experienced team troublee. Originally England selected thirteen players, leaving places vacant in the three-quarter line and paok. These were filled by Barring- ton Ward, the Edinburgh University forward, 1 and P. M..Stoop, the latter being a new cap.

Scot- land made two changes in their three-quarter line. Pobsou and W alter dropped out for Angus a ad Sutherland, both old inter- nationals.
