To 'B' or not to 'B'.

I'm wondering if someone can clarify something for me ? During the course of what I'm doing, I've come across an interesting puzzle.

On 17 November 1980, Ingerland hosted Australia at St. Andrews, Birmingham. I've always been under the impression that this was a 'B' international. But, according to www.11v11.com, it's a Full international. Has it's status changed ?

According to Sky Sports (Rothman's) Football Yearbook 2003-2004 which is the last issue they listed England "B" International results, the game in question was a "B" international. Hope that helps.

I think it was one of those hybrid games, with an England B side but a full Australia team.

I think that is probably the answer. When you look at the Ingerland side that played and check full international appearances, half of them aren't listed in Rothman's.

Thanks lads !
