  • Description

    An American Rugby match in the U.S.A. (United States of America). Full title reads: "AN AMERICAN 'CUP TIE' - Crowd of over 50,000 see Harvard defeat Yale by 10-3 in American rugby match."

    L/S Nice high angled shot of the large stadium and the vast amount of spectators in the ground. The camera pans to the right to reveal more spectators. M/S The match kicks off the ball is kicked up field, the members of the team frantically race after it running from left to right.

    L/S Another high angled shot looking directly down the field of play, there appears to be a large industrial works behind the stadium. We are treated to various shots of the action with numerous crunching tackles and ball play.

    M/S Nice footage from behind the crowd, we can see the numerous heads of crowd members, a man stands up and waves his hat at the ensuing action. More footage of the match in which we see the teams involved in a scrum is followed by a M/S of a very jubilant section of the crowd. A smartly dressed elderly gentlemen wearing a trilby style hat jumps up and down waving his arms and cheering.

    L/S Members of the crowd are holding up large pieces of paper / card which combine to form a gigantic 'H' (presumably these are the Harvard supporters) and wave them. High angled shot as the end of the match is greeted by a mass pitch invasion. The spectators run on from every side of the stadium in jubilant celebration.
