Thanks for that. Only 5 of that starting eleven left now but that's to be expected as they all reach 80 +. RIP Big Jack. Thought I'd check the subs as well for that day but no subs were permitted then. I was fortunate to see Leeds a lot, late 60s and 70s. Sad day both in England and Ireland. Not many proud Englishmen so loved with so much affection across Ireland. Great example of sport transcending other things.
