Stalemate as Ireland and England play out a scoreless draw at Lansdowne Road.

Heavy rain had turned the playing surface into a mud bath and at times reduced the contest to a lottery with moments of comedy as the players struggled to hold on to their footing and the ball.  The conditions also made the 75th game between the two countries a tough physical encounter as Ireland and England played out the first nil all draw since 1910.

Ireland played England at Lansdowne Road on 9 February 1963. The final score was Ireland 0 England 0.

The highlights shown here are taken from 'Sports Special' broadcast 10 February 1963. The commentator is Fred Cogley.
