Very much, except for the scoreline. If things carry on the way the ZRU are going we will be back to challenging the likes of Romania again soon.

Paris 1912, from https://www.flickr.com/photos/rugby_pioneers/

According to the rules of the time, a team fielding a player with hairs no parted in the middle had match lost and a fine of 25,000 francs : )

29th junior world championship? In 1997? I didn't know that the event was so ancient. Even if it was yearly since the beginning, it must have started in 1969; much earlier than the senior World Cup.

It's a bit a surprise, to me, also the FIRA logo. I thought that FIRA and AER were two denominations of the same board, one in english and one in french; instead now I think to have understood that FIRA was the world amateur federation and that AER was its european section

By the way, even if it's not a so old stuff, I bought the 2017 Italy's national team polo; it's on a 50% discount, 24.5 €. I will be very proud every time I wear it. Should arrive on the next days https://shop.federugby.it/eu/it/

FIRA was formed under the leadership of the French when the IRB countries shunned them for flouting the amateur rules. It was set up as a world body, but in practice that was never going to succeed when the biggest rugby playing nations were outside it.

People, desesperatly trying to watch the final of the french championship in 1921 :)

More than 20 000 people attended that game in Béziers. Some wine barrels were also used as a last minute stand.

The game was allready immensly popular in the region

Again Lycée Lakanal, the same of two posts above. Very first years of '900, I'd say. A football action, probably staged for the photographer.
To note that while many players have long trousers some others have pulled up their ones and a pair of boys have apparently cut their trousers at the level of the knees. It's the birth of the short trousers
