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.
