From the match programme:-
"We have been looking forward to the return game with Newport ever since we defeated them in September last. We extend a very hearty welcome to this famous old Club and we know they are going to make a very special effort to reverse the result of the first match. Our visitors will not lack vocal support, for their Supporters' Club is making it the occasion of their Annual Outing. When we visit Newport our team always meets with generous applause and we must make a point of returning the compliment. Apart from the result of the game itself, which will, in all conscience, be sufficient incentive, there is the question of a mythical flag to be decided. The manner in which this comes about also dates back to last September when, after that famous victory, Newport's brand new flag somehow or other found its way into our jersey bag. The winner of this game will become the Holder of the Flag in much the same way as Cricket's famous " Ashes." As Newport have only lost to Cardiff since December 17, and we have not lost since visiting Cardiff on Boxing Day, both teams will be making a spscial effort to-day."
"As Wales are engaged in the attempt to win the Triple Crown in Ireland, Ken Jones and R. T. Evans will be missing from our visitors' team to-day. In our own side B. P. Young and J. Osborn return to our " threes," and M. U. Hughes, who has been unwell for some weeks, comes in again as hooker after a game with The Vandals, who visited Letchworth and defeated the home side by 35 - 0, Nigel Money marking the occasion by scoring five tries himself. M. Baker played a very encouraging game in the centre for the First last week and got a nice try; he filled J. Osborn's place as the latter was required by the R.A.F."
"London Hospital provided one of the best games seen on the ground this season. They have an exceptionally fast back division and as the ground was in grand condition the pace was terrific. Our pack was much too good for them, however, except in the important art of hooking. As a result we won 11 - 0 for the second week in succession. As Bath drew with Bristol 6 - all last Saturday, it enhances the value of our victory over them on February 25th."
"Just a reminder that Birkenhead Park visit us next Saturday. They are coming up overnight and so will be quite fit for the game, which should be something out of the ordinary. The Park's beautiful ground will be the venue of the County Championship match between Cheshire and East Midlands to-day, and earlier in the season they housed the first International Trial match."
