    Ireland beat France at rugby in Belfast.

  • Description

    Ulster, Northern Ireland.

    Title: "Ireland beats France by 11 points to nil in International Rugby Match at Belfast".

    Panning shot of the French rugby team posed in two lines - one standing, one sitting - outside a building. Similar shot of the Irish rugby team (the only difference being the French all sit with their legs crossed!).

    Intertitle: "W.E. Crawford, the Irish Captain who marked his twentythird appearance for Ireland by a brilliant display".

    C/U of Crawford, smiling and playing with a rugby ball. M/S of the French team running onto the pitch passing the packed terraces, a stray dog runs alongside them. Similar shot of the Irish rugby team running onto the pitch. Panning shot of the heaving mass of spectators in the stands.

    Various shots of the rugby match in progress. M/S of a part of the crowd cheering wildly.
