FLASHBACK: April 1953

Great Britain beat France 15-13 in a bizarre Test match in Paris. A kick at goal by French fullback, Puig Aubert went several metres to the left of the posts and the French referee, Huk ruled a goal line drop-out. But one of the touch judges had his flag up, so the ref went with him. Huk awarded 37 penalties to France and seven to England.
French centre, Jiminez ran 30 metres to kick English centre, Greenall in the pants. No Penalty. In the last 10 minutes the English hooker did not strike for the ball, to avoid conceding a penalty.
French photographers crowded the sideline and interfered with English winger, Cracknell.
Sounds like a great day out.
