The Skilball Trophy was contested in 1990 by a team titled the "Four Home Unions" against a team titled the "Rest of Europe XV". This was a match to raise money for the rebuilding of Romania following the overthrow of Nicolae Ceauşescu in December 1989.[1] The Four Nations team's logo was that used by the British and Irish Lions, i.e. the crests of the four home unions united in a shield. The Rest of Europe played under the symbol of the Federaţia Română de Rugby. The match was played at Twickenham, and the four home unions won the match 43-18 with England captain Will Carling scoring two tries.
