Correct! (Vidal that is.)
Explanation: Until 1877 the side which scored kicked off. Vidal scored, kicked off, dribbled round his opponents, scored, kicked off, dribbled round his opponents and scored again.
It would be good to see the contemporary evidence for this!
What was it okay for this bounder to take the kick off, pass it to himself, and go on a mazy dribble, then bury it past some hapless custodian without anyone else touching it?
Roy Race sounds more plausible to me.
