The NZ Services team, in their penultimate game before disbanding, were untroubled in beating D R Gent’s XV 21 – 3 in Chard, Somerset.
Welsh born Dai Gent, a school teacher, had a long career with the Gloucester club and represented England 1905-10.
There was a community aspect to the match. The Assistant Chief Constable of Somerset collaborated with Gent in the selection of the side, which probably explains the Somerset Police presence in the playing XV. field. Also involved was Lord Kemsley “who generously undertook to defray the greater part of the expense entailed in bringing this outstanding attraction to Chard”.
