    The match was played on 9 September 1939.

    "Waverly" in text and tags should read Waverley. The ground they're playing on is the Waverley Oval.

    The sentence beginning "Includes shots of cricketers....." should be changed to the following;

    Jack Fingleton, Bert Oldfield, Jack Gregory, Bill O'Reilly, Charlie Macartney, Ted Forssberg, Stan McCabe, C. M. Solomon, Arthur Mailey, Lincoln Hynes, Tommy Andrews, Alan McGilvray. C/U's Jack Gregory, Arthur Mailey, Charlie Macartney.


    The full line-ups of the two teams can be found here....
