Albert Wood was a rugby union footballer of the 1880s, playing at representative level for England, and at club level for Halifax,[1] as a Forward, e.g. Front row, Lock, or Back row. Prior to Tuesday 27 August 1895, Halifax was a rugby union club.

Playing career[edit]

International honours[edit]

Albert Wood won a cap for England while at Halifax in 1884 against Ireland.[2]

Change of Code[edit]

When Halifax converted from the rugby union code to the rugby league code on Tuesday 27 August 1895, Albert Wood would have likely been in his thirties. Consequently, he may have been both a rugby union and rugby league footballer for Halifax.
