Five Colour GIFs From Ireland vs England In A 1951 Five Nations Game.
Ireland played England in their second fixture of the Five Nations championship on February 10th, 1951. They would go on to win the championship that year.
They beat England 3-0 in this game through a penalty from second row, John McKibbin.
It was a different game in 1951. The ball seems more elusive and line-outs were a different animal altogether.
Footage from the game can be seen here courtesy of the RTE archives.
