"HEREFORD v. NEWPORT. - The return match between these two clubs was played last week. Unfortunately, the Hereford club produced only seven contestants, and the Newport gave them five to make up a scratch match, 12 playing on each side instead of 15. There was good play on both sides, and perhaps it was the best game of the season at Newport, but there was not the interest there would have been under different conditions. Hereford gained one goal and one try, and compelled the home team to touch down once in self-defence. The Newport had four tries, and compelled the Hereford to touch down five or six times. The Newport team consisted of T. B. Jones, back; W. Jones and Spittle, three-quarter back; C. H. Newman and Alfred Goss, half back; J. Richards, C. Phillips, C. H. Collins, Arthur Goss, A. Newman, E. Lewis and H. Ellen. The substitutes for the Hereford men were V. Julius, J. Jenkins, W. Mitchell, H. Gould, and T. Mitchell. This is the last match of the season at Newport, but the Newport club have to play two matches at other places."
Newport scored 4T and 6TDs while Hereford scored 1T and 1TD
