  • Description

    Full title reads: "Swansea - The Leek Triumphs - After ten long years - amidst indescribable enthusiasm - Wales beats England in thrilling international by 12pts to 5."

    Swansea, West Glamorgan, Wales.

    High angle shot from the back of the crowd. Shows large crowd in stands and corner of Rugby pitch. As the camera pans right to left a band can be seen on the pitch playing, this is very much in the background.

    The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor) walks down the line up of the England team shaking hands with the players. He then crosses over to walk down the line of the Welsh team.

    Action from the game. Some fairly frantic activity. England put in from a line out. England gain some yards. Another England line out. England appear to score a try. More play. Wales appear to miss with a place kick.

    Sound track missing.
