    Background: AUSTRALIA 28 - GREAT BRITAIN 2: THE RESULT OF THE FIRST RUGBY LEAGUE TEST PLAYED IN LONDON ON WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 16TH. THE AUSTRALIANS - WHO HAVE LOST TO THREE CLUB SIDES DURING THE TOUR - PROVED TO BE BY FAR THE BETTER SIDE IN THIS FIRST BIG TEST OF THE SEASON.

    AUSTRALIA OPENED THE SCORING WITH A PENALTY GOAL BY LANGLANDS AFTER 18 MINUTES. TWO MINUTES LATER GREAT BRITAIN RECEIVED A MUCH GREATER SHOCK WHEN STAND-OFF HALF, DAVID BOLTON WAS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL WITH A SHOULDER INJURY. BUT AFTER 27 MINUTES, GREAT BRITAIN EQUALISED WITH A PENALTY GOAL BY FOX. BY HALF TIME AUSTRALIA HAD GONE AHEAD WITH AN UNCONVERTED TRY FROM THORNETT AND A TRY FROM GASNIER, WHICH LANGLANDS DID CONVERT.

    IN THE SECOND HALF IT WAS ALL AUSTRALIA - THE WEAKENED BRITAIN PACK WERE NO MATCH FOR THE GOAL HUNGRY TOURISTS. THE AUSTRALIANS SCORED FOUR TRIES, THREE OF WHICH WERE CONVERTED.

    THE MATCH WAS THE FIRST RUGBY LEAGUE TEST MATCH TO BE PLAYED IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND AT THE FAMOUS WEMBLEY SPORTS STADIUM.
