IN the latest edition of our look back through the T&A picture archives, here are five rugby teams from years gone by.

Our first picture shows a party of more than 40 boys from Bradford, Dewsbury and Hunslet, who left Shaw Cross Boys’ Club, Dewsbury, for the Yorkshire Association of Boys’ Clubs Rugby League exchange tour in April 1984.

The group, two squads of under-16 and under-18 players, in tracksuit tops sponsored by Spen Valley Sports and Leisure, Cleckheaton, met French youth sides at Villeneuve-Sur-Lot, Tonneins and Trentels during their nine-day six-match tour.

The boys came mainly from Shaw Cross, Sedbergh Boys’ Club, Bradford, Clayton and West Bowling clubs.
