1927 Wales v New South Wales Waratahs rugby match ticket – gilt edged ticket c/w perforated stub - played at Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday 26th November for the “Reserved Committee Centre Stand” ex album with adhesive marks on the back otherwise (G). Note The Queensland Rugby Union had collapsed in 1919 and would not be reborn until 1929 leaving the New South Wales Rugby Union to administer the game in Australia at the national representative level. Just prior to the start of the Australian 1927 season an invitation from the International Rugby Board arrived in Sydney requesting a New South Wales side tour Great Britain to play Tests against the Home Nations. In 1986 the Australian Rugby Union decreed the five full-internationals played on the tour as official Test matches.
