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.
