T=try, C=conversion, D=dropped goal, GM=goal from a mark, TD=touchdown.

 



[1] Leicester disputed this try.

[2] Touchdowns were only used to decide drawn matches in cup-ties.

[3] It is uncertain whether or not this was a 1st XV fixture, it seems unlikely in view of the game with Cardiff on the same day.

[4] Handsworth disputed one of the goals.

[5] This was an extra match between the two clubs in aid of the Philanthropic Society.

[6] The Birmingham Daily Post recorded ‘numerous touchdowns’ to Moseley.
