  • Description

    Item title reads: "Ireland defeat Scotland. In most amazing International Match of all time-spectators and players collapsed under incessant downpour of ice-cold rain."

    Dublin, Ireland

    The players come out onto the pitch, mostly with hands in pockets. The crowd is a mass of umbrellas. The players have long white shorts and dark shirts. A elderly man with a white beard, the Irish Prime Minister?... is introduced to the players. We see various sequences of play with tackles and scrums but no scores.
