"LIVERPOOL v. NEWPORT."
"Playing on their own ground, Newport were without Dauncey, Parfitt, Boucher, and Watts, and the Liverpool team was also less than representative. The result of the game was a victory for Newport by two goals and a try to nil. The winners ran in once in the first half, and twice in the second, England on two occasions succeeding in placing a goal. The game was stubbornly fought out, Newport, though not up to their best form, at all points showing by far the better combination behind the scrimmage, and so ensuring a success."
