This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...are many of them--are followed by suppers, subscribed for by the players, or provided by the masters, which are the scenes of much amusement and conviviality. The great annual meeting of cricketers at Rugby is at the time of the old Rugbeian match. It is played between an eleven of old Rugbeians and the School eleven, and at the same time several other games are played between school cricketers, past and present. The School eleven also play many foreign matches, for instance, matches between college teams from the Universities, the Rugby club, the Free Foresters, the Butterflies, the M. C.
