According to Lythgoe they didnt have an RL team.

If that's a RL team their 2 players short.

That's me, 1st on front row,the name is Doug Webb not Doug Brown.Remember Jack Hughes very well, stand off with blistering pace. Jimmy mate a rugby league team only has 13 players.

Sorry Graham, I didn't realize the two out of kit were players. I thought they were coaches.

nobby lad glad to see yo are still around. We still have an old farts meeting in wiggin from time to time. I think we started at Linacre in 1957, I think you may have been a year earlier,but we are all agreed that there was no rugby team in 1957
