Australian team photo -1937

An England "amateur" side toured Australia after a six year negotiating period to get them here. The 'A' was thought impossible to bring to Australia so an English Amateur Team toured in their place. There is some conjecture as to whether these matches were A or B internationals but since the English FA don't recognise it as internationals they are classed as B.

Australia won 2

England “Amateur” won 2
