1891-1900
 
England's team against Scotland in 1887

* Although the half-time break was introduced on 23 February 1870, the teams changed ends after each goal and after forty-five minutes. This rule existed up until 24 February 1875, when the half-time 'interval' was to be introduced at the end of that season, and the changing ends after a goal scored was abolished.

Season 1872-73
