Show me the line!

An acerbic comment from the first team scoring book of 1886-87, referring to a match at Llanelly which Gloucester lost by by 2 goals and a try to nil:

 “Two of the (Llanelly) tries were obtained after the ball was most distinctly passed forward. No goal line was marked and Stoddart (playing for Gloucester) was once over but didn’t know!”
