Great photo of a great team! By the way, Ron, it should read 1964-65 Challenge Cup winners. In 1965-66 season, we lost to Saints at Wembley!

I used to go to the rugby with my friend June and her Dad at this time and I remember all those names. June and I knitted ourselves cherry-and-white striped scarves which grew with every wash until they were trailing the floor!
