Just to complete the picture, Mick Wilton was the outside centre and it’s Dave Burgess at the back of the lineout, don’t know who we were playing, I think it could have been a West Country side.
The scary thing is that I played with many of the blokes featured in the shot over 50 years ago!
I’m not sure that Dave is right about the opposition being a West Country side – none of them look as if they are from one of those ‘why they shouldn’t let cousins marry’ villages!
