If you were a Rugby Lions supporter watching games at Webb Ellis Road in the late 1980s and early 1990s, try and name these players without looking at the list!

I don’t know them all, but I’m sure someone will be able to help me out. But this is my effort...

In the top picture, taken at a tug-of-war event in 1988, (back from left) Ian Heywood, Phil Bowman, don’t know, Martin Fleetwood and Jon Jenkins.
