Nostalgia 1959 De Aston rugby players

De Aston’s rugby players travelled to London back in 1959 to play matches against Tiffin School at Holland House in Kensington.

Some of the members of the 1st XV and De Aston Colts are pictured boarding the Bristow’s bus at the start of the journey.

And it was a notable double victory for the Rasen players, with the first team winning 9-3 and the Colts 14-9.

They spent the afternoon at Twickenham, watching the England France international match - I wonder if the national team fared as well?
