Have we met before?
The two countries have met before at U15 Schoolboy International level, when England travelled to Australia for a tour during the period of 19 July – 12 August, 1974. That year England Schools played four warm-up matches which based on an England Representative X1, while the fifth and final game took the form of an official Under 15 Schoolboy International.
Geoff Jennett, the Chairman of the English Schools’ FA that year, must have been a proud man, as he witnessed his Association go unbeaten during the tour.
