He played for Cornwall against the 1908 touring Australians and three weeks later was in the team that played the Wallabies at the White City for the Olympic gold medal. Jose started his rugby as a boy with the Falmouth “One and All” Club before joining Falmouth Albion and after moving to Devonport, where he worked as a shipwright in the dockyard, he joined Devonport Albion.
