1910 South Africa
- Updated: 6th June 2012
Coach: W Cail
The 1910 tour to South Arica was the first tour to take a serious approach to its organisation. For the first time, all four unions were represented and the missionary work that was part of the previous tours was no longer required and so it was deemed a straight battle for victory.
Lead by Tom Smyth of Ireland, the tour was a bruising encounter with 4 replacements being called up as the tour progressed and culminating in a loss in the final test with only 14 British players on the field at the end of the game.
The honours were shared in the first two tests with the tourists losing the first test by 14 points to their 10 but picking up victory in the second test at Port Elizabeth by 8 points to the hosts 3.
