The Raeburn Shield is a Challenge Trophy to be put up by the current holder, or defender, in every match it plays home or away (in the same manner as a world boxing title). The winner would either remain or become the holder.

It stretches back in this manner from the very first game of International Rugby Union in 1871 between Scotland and England played at Raeburn Place in Edinburgh

It seems this is the third time in 10 years we have taken on the shield from SA. The lassen.co.nz site has some good data - you can click on Ireland and see our shield matches back to 1875
