real Rugby Union season opens this
afternoon and there are two fixtures that should be of interest to
followers of the game. Birkenhead Park will be at home to the Liverpool
and as the latter turned out last Saturday at Lancaster they should be
in capital form to meet their old opponents at Birkenhead. Liverpool
take the field at home, and their visitors will be the Waterloo XV, who

limited few to record a victory at the expense of Liverpool. However on
that occasion county calls weakened the Aigburth side.
contest is sure to be respective of good sport, and it is hoped that
the public will give their support to the game.
