Scotland 1925 Grand Slam

On the 21st March 1925, Scotland won its first Grand Slam. The final match was against England at the newly opened Murrayfield Stadium. There was a record crowd of 70,000.

Firstly, Scotland had already beaten France 25-4. Secondly, Wales 24-14 in Cardiff. Thirdly, Ireland 14-8 in Dublin. Finally, it was England that stood between them and their first Grand Slam. The game was fiercely contested. With the lead changing hands three times.

England scored first with a penalty goal. But hit back with a converted try: 5-3. Then, two English tries followed. But, only one was converted. England led  5-11.

Scotland scored a controversial try with only 25 minutes to go. The English alleged that the Scottish player’s foot had gone into touch before the ball was grounded. However, the Welsh referee Mr. Freethy awarded the try. And it was converted. This took the Scots to within two points of victory at 10-11.

Retro Scotland Rugby Grand Slam Victory

With minutes remaining. Scotland’s hero was fly-half, Waddell. He calmly slotted a drop goal. This took the score to 14-11. And then the celebrations began as Scotland claimed the Grand Slam.
GPS Macpherson was the Scotland team as captain. He won 26 caps for his country. In 2002 he was inducted into Scotland’s Sports Hall of Fame.
