And the Winner is....................Frank Leonard and Barry Ruttle. Referee on the game was Graeme West.

Steve Betts and Barry Ruttle?

Steve Betts and Barry Ruttle. It’s definitely Bettsy though, he has the form guide in his left hand.

My guess is Frank Leonard and Barry Ruttle?

I agree with Jeff

If this is Newcastle v Auckland 1995 I was definitely there. I decided to have a go with the whistle in 1996.

Yep I’d say Bettie and Barry

Wasn't Bettsy left handed though??

Frank Leonard not sure of the other one

My guess is it is me and Jim Neal .

Definitely Happy Baz 🙏✅

I'm with Jeff

To tall and to much hair for Baz lmao

Think Jeff is correct
