Match Report

England
This was a unique international match, where England's opponents were "Other Nationalities", a side open to anyone resident in the UK but didn't qualify for England.

On this occasion, for the first and only time in this side's history, all of the players selected for the Other Nationalities side were Welsh. However the rugby league authorities refused to recognise this as a Welsh international, despite calls at the time to do so.

So, one of the Other Nationalities players, Wickham Powell, remains as a unique player, one who played for a fully Welsh born side against England, but didn't win a Welsh cap.
