  1. British Pathé says

    A visitor to the website has pointed out that this clip is the same footage as Film ID: 1928.02

    The location is Welford Road in Leicester, New Zealand Services vs. Leicester Tigers, probably on Jan 11th 1919.

    It would seem that this was a fixture, originally scheduled for Saturday 4th January but cancelled due to snow, played on the following Saturday 11th January. It was between Leicester Tigers and New Zealand Services (i.e. not really the'All Blacks') but probably representing New Zealand as it was so soon after the end of the First World War.

    The venue is definitely Welford Road, which is still the Tigers' ground, and the result was a 19-0 victory for New Zealand Services.
