The same match showing Joe Egan slipping a pass to Gordon Ratcliffe to score under the posts. The other England try came from another Egan pass as he cleverly passed the ball under his legs to find Les White who went on to score. Joe was a very good player, and as Arthur Clues (Leeds) and ex-Aussie Test player summarised, the Aussies were a match for the Great Britain team physically but when it came to the dark arts of the scrum they still had a lot to learn from the British.
