  • On November 1st, 1923, in the town of Rugby, England, some two thousand rugby enthusiasts gathered to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the first ever rugby match. A combined England-Wales side, wearing white jerseys emblazoned with the rose of England and the feathers of Wales, faced off against a combined Ireland-Scotland side, and narrowly won. One hundred years earlier in 1823, the story goes, a student at Rugby School named William Webb Ellis displayed (to quote a plaque at the school) "a fine disregard for the rules of football, took the ball into his hands, and ran with it", inadvertently inventing Rugby football. In collaboration with Sports D'Epoque.
