What we know about this image :

The squad for the Colts tour (players under 19 on the 1st January of the current season and employed) which saw them play across Canada in August and September of 1985.  There was a local interest with Jonathon Wrigley (Hartlepool Rovers) in the squad along with Alan Bell from Horden as Physio. Other area players are Ian Parnaby and Fred Short then from Westoe who both played for West Hartlepool later in their careers. Also, in the back row is Yorkshireman John Bentley who made it all the way to the top of the game with England and the Lions and well as the Rugby League.

The games took the players right across the country with games in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and two games in Vancouver, the Final being against Canada Juniors.
