This episode of 'Short Leg' a new series of short episodes re-living the great matches, innings or moments of the Golden Age – discusses the famous 1st Test at the SCG of 1894, in which Australia hosted Andrew Stoddart's England side. The match is often credited with being the first great match of the new era, and one that saw many new records established.

CORRIGENDUM:
Thanks to my friend Roy Pierce for pointing out that Andrew Stoddart was not the first and only Englishman to captain both the national cricket and rugby sides. A.N. 'Monkey' Hornby also achieved this rare feat.  I stand corrected.
