On the train in transit to play the 1924 match against France, Cardiff full-back Ossie Male was suspended by the Welsh selection committee for having played within 7 days of being selected for an international. Penarth's Mel Rosser was switched to full-back and Joe Jones came in to Rosser's vacant centre spot for his only cap. Wales won the match played in a sea of freezing mud, by 11 points to 6.
