Notes

For the first time, a mid-season table was produced for the 'International Championship'. It appeared in the Evening Telegraph, on Tuesday, 21 March 1899, following the England-Wales match.

Once more, but only for the second time in its history, the reports following the final match recognised an International Championship. Stating the "The Representatives of England and Scotland met at Birmingham on Saturday to decide the International Championship, both having previously defeated Wales and Ireland."
