I recognise my old mate Eric O'Neil as captain. We played on the same rugby team at John Rigby.

I think Peter Farrell (Andy's dad} is 5th from left on the back row, could be wrong though.

I remember playing against this team when I was at St Benedict's, Hindley. We'd only just started out, and we played St Pat's at their ground. They absolutely destroyed us! They passed the ball like professionals.

The tall lad in the middle of the back row, I think is Tony Frain ?.

Are they all wearing their 'SAINTS' jerseys?
