  • Description

    Full title reads: "Sydney. England wins Rugby 'Ashes'. Jim Sullivan & his team of Rugby League stalwarts, win the final 'Test' by 18 pts - 13 pts, after epic contest."

    Sydney, Australia.

    Shaky aerial views of Rugby ground in Sydney.

    The England team walk out onto the pitch. (Their white kit looks rather muddy). They are followed by the Australians in dark shirt. Shot of large crowds.

    Good shots of the Rugby League international. (Looks rather fast - could be camera speed is wrong?).

    The goal kicking of the Australian Wiseman (?) is brought out for specific mention. Good shot of English player making a conversion with a kick.

    Shots of the crowd.

    C/U of Jim Sullivan, English Rugby player (the captain) speaking to the camera about the wonderful game, played in a wonderful spirit. He talk about the Australian's forthcoming tour of England.
