Prior to Tuesday 27 August 1895, Huddersfield was a rugby union club.

Playing career

International honours

Henry Huth won a cap for England while at Huddersfield in the 1878–79 Home Nations rugby union match against Scotland.[4]

Change of Code

When Huddersfield converted from the rugby union code to the rugby league code on Tuesday 27 August 1895, Henry Huth would have been 39. Consequently, he may have been too old to have been both a rugby union and rugby league footballer for Huddersfield.


If Henry Huth's birth date (14 February 1856) and death date (31 December 1929) on ESPNscrum are correct, then he would have been 73 years old at his death. However, FreeBMD quotes the age at death of an Henry Huth registered during October–December 1929 in Kensington district as being 72.
