(*) The above table refers to all matches where Test Caps have been awarded. It is important to note that there can be some differentiation between countries in terms of awarding caps. Some countries have awarded caps in games their opponents have not recognised as Tests. In Australia's case, some games NSW played against the All Blacks and the Springboks were counted as tests by Australia but not by New Zealand and South Africa.

(+) The British side of 1910, led by the Irish forward Tom Smyth, was the first team officially representative of the Four Home Unions.
