Notes

Reports of England's first match of the 1900-01 season against Ireland still opened with the fact that the match was the twentieth meeting between the countries, with a subsequent set of results. However, Sheffield's Daily Telegraph ended the match report with an Association International Table (left).

Later in the month, in the build-up to the grand match between England and Scotland, the same newspaper reported on the story of the 'International Tournament' of the five matches played thus far. And then stressing the importance of the final match by regarding the eventual winners as 'National Champions'.
