In 1959 the Australian side played five 'test matches' against the visiting Scottish club side Hearts of Midlothian plus two Australian XI matches. The tour was the last to take place by a visiting international team before FIFA revoked Australia's affiliation over transfer irregularities with a number of European born players.
