Can you help to identify members of the 1963/64 RGS rugby 4th XV, pictured above? If you think you can, please email me. If you click here, you should be able to see reference numbers magically appear against each person in the photo (click here to switch it off again). Then all you have to do is tell me the boy's reference number and whom you think they are. Email
To be honest, I cannot recall how I came by this photo. It just seemed to be there in my RGS photo folder! From the OW website?
From the Wycombiensian, May 1964, p587
Played 4, Won 2, Drawn 1, Lost 1, Points For 52, Against 23
The 4th XV usually has two roles to fill - that of providing a stepping stone to the higher teams for promising players, and that of giving more boys the opportunity to play for their school.
This season the team had four fixtures: against Watford G.S. and Vyners School the team played well and won both matches. Against Warren Field we lost a close match, and we ended the season by drawing with Tiffins School.
Amongst the forwards, Wakefield and Haley must be mentioned, whilst Daines, Melson and Bufton stood out with their standard of play in the backs. R. P. [Robin] AYRES.
