From The Vaults
Did you know that on Christmas Day in 1872 a match was played in Calcutta with 20 players representing England and 20 representing Scotland, Ireland and Wales? After a failed attempt at attracting members, the Calcutta Club folded and their remaining silver rupees were melted and formed into the Calcutta Cup that we still play for today.
