Rugby at Ta Kali 1958

John Holmes
Back row. Andrew Lyne, Gordon Campbell, Bob Powell,George Whitehouse, Jock Lawrence, dunno, Craig Love has his hands on the shoulders of John Holmes, then its Jack Stubbs, Mike Eyett, Geoff Day, Roger Chandler, Robin Palmer and Bob Blythe. Kneeling I can't name the first two but with his hand on the ball is Bob Trott. Next to him is Roddy Robertson, then Lewis Thomas, Colin Doyle, and finally, Mike Cane.

And yes, I am the bloke who can name the Righteous Brother that no one knows (Bobby Hatfield) and the one in the Magnificent Seven who never went on to stardom. (Brad Dexter) I thank you. I can't imagine why I am not in this picture.

Neither can we Spike. What would we do without your amazing powers of recall?

As you know Admin, my life has been spent in prayer and silent contemplation. Fasting for weeks at a time and drinking only water and thinking only pure thoughts. My body is a temple. I could have been archbishop of Canterbury and would have been except for the tattoos. Oh well, maybe in the next life. Oh yeah, and I've got a good memory for c**p.

I am pretty sure that the chap next to Mike Kane is Colin Doyle.
