Footnotes

  • In 1925 Scotland won the Five Nations Championship with their first Grand Slam, they won all 4 matches and Johnnie Wallace scored a try in every match. The final game of the series was the Calcutta Cup held on 21st March. Scotland beat England 14-11 at their all new rugby ground at Murrayfield.

    "On a sparkling, sunny spring afternoon a truly memorable game of rugby unfolded, watched by a record crowd of over 70,000. This was a closely contested game between two wonderfully talented sides and which saw the lead change hands three times. High drama and controversy added to the potent mixture." Paul MacDonald.
