1905 England match worn jersey versus Wales, marking the only cap for full back, Sam Irvin, as England lost 25-0. Extraordinary woollen jersey in fabulous condition.

England crashed to their - at the time - heaviest defeat on Welsh soil, losing 25-0 at Cardiff Arms Park. The home side ran in seven tries in front of 30,000 spectators with the Times saying the difference between the sides was "at three-quarter and fullback where [Sam] Irvin showed no capacity either in tackling or kicking and the three-quarters (some of them in strange positions) kept no formation". Unsurprisingly, it was Irvin's first and last test cap.

Sam switch to Rugby League and played 37 matches for Oldham from 1905-06/1908-09.
