Gallaher's team were dominant in 1905, they had also beaten Australia 14-3 & Scotland 12-7.
Wales were unbeaten too, thrashing England 25-0, beating Scotland 6-3 and Ireland 10-3. So the scene was set, Triple Crown Wales against the all conquering All Blacks at Cardiff Arms Park . This was billed as the Match of the Century. the World Championship, the top two teams in the world head to head. The game lived up to expectations, it was the most controversial rugby match ever, Wales went ahead with a try by Teddy Morgan. The the All Blacks thought they'd scored through Deans, he claims he was dragged back from over the line, the Welsh players said NO ! Likewise the referee, the All Blacks could not cross the line.
