Provenance

In December 1870, five Scottish football clubs invited English footballers to participate in a match played using “Rugby Rules”. The challenge was ignored by the England Football Association but Blackheath, one of London's oldest football clubs, accepted and fielded England's first international rugby side. On Monday 27th March 1871, some 4,000 spectators descended on Edinburgh’s Raeburn Place to watch the match. Played over two fifty-minute halves, there were no penalty goals in this inaugural match, as it was understood that gentlemen would not cheat. These men, playing in white jerseys with an oversized rose emblem and wing collar, became the first to wear the now-famous red rose of England.
