Jim Leytham


Jim Sharrock 1, Johnny Thomas 1


This Australia touring side included four New Zealand born players to help promote the game of Rugby League in New Zealand, so this touring side was billed as Australasians. They had been unbeaten in ten matches on the tour so far, including victories over Wales and England, but Wigan inflicted their first defeat of the tour, like they had done to New Zealand in 1907. It was 2-2 at half time after Jim Sharrock's penalty goal was equalised by a drop goal for Australia by Howard Hallett. In the second half Johnny Thomas put Wigan back in front with a penalty for 4-2 before an unconverted Jim Leytham try wrapped up a 7-2 win.
