- Baskerville Shield
The Baskerville Shield is a trophy awarded to the winner of
rugby leaguetest series between Great Britain and New Zealand. It named in honour of Albert Henry Baskerville, who organised the first ever tour by New Zealand of Great Britain in 1907.
The shield was inaugurated in 2002, and is currently held by Great Britain after defeating an under strength New Zealand side 3-0 in a series whitewash on the
2007 All Golds Tour.
The spelling of the trophy is somewhat controversial, as there is much evidence to suggest that "Baskiville" was the correct spelling of the surname. However, the
Rugby Football Leagueused the "Baskerville" spelling arguing that this was the version used by the man himself. cite web |Author= [Sean Fagan] |title=Albert Baskerville - Or Baskiville?|url=http://www.rl1908.com/articles/Baskerville.htm |accessdate=2008-06-28 |publisher=http://www.rl1908.com/index.htm RL1908]
