Wales' Wonderful Rugby Win - 1922

This short newsreel of the Wales v. England rugby match during the 1922 Five Nations Championships shows us the huge cheering masses looking, somehow, much larger than present day rugby crowds. After both teams run out onto the ground at Cardiff Arms Park, we see a couple of passages of play.
Although Wales won easily and put away 8 tries, we only see an English player making a break (perhaps C.N. Lowe, the sole scorer for England?). Wales triumphed with 28 points to 6 and went on to win the tournament. (Annabelle Shaw)
