Help needed to identify players

DOES anybody know who number 11, 17 or 3 are?

The identity of these men has slipped Col Fawcett’s mind, and it has been bugging him for years.

The under-18 Wharfies of 1954, for which Fawcett played, included relatives of many current and former BRL players and he hopes some of them can help identify the unknown men.

“I was never much of a player, but it was a pretty good little team,” Fawcett recalled.

“I can’t for the life of me remember who those guys are, but hopefully somebody does.”

Anybody who thinks they know the players should text the NewsMail on 0429 062 247.
