Merry Christmas from the World Rugby Museum!


This Christmas Card was made in Bavaria, Germany and is believed to date from the late 19th Century. Printed on the inside is the following poem-

“With fortune’s football at your feet

This merry Christmas Day,

May you attain your goal, and meet

With few kicks on the way”

Handwritten on the reverse is the simple message-

‘To Ted from Daisy’


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at the World Rugby Museum!
