I wonder if anyone could help me solve a mystery. I collect and research rugby medals and have bought two Town medals which were sold at auction in Scotland. They are a Rugby League Challenge Cup Final runners up medal for season 1954-55 and a Rugby League Championship Final runners up medal for season 1957-58. The Rugby League have engraved the medals for each competition, but neither the club nor the individual have added their names to the medals. The Rugby Football League were very strict in how many medals they issued which were usually 13 plus 2 for the Secretary and Chairman.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to who may have played in these two losing finals three seasons apart, but for what ever reason did not play in the 1957-58 losing Rugby League Challenge Cup Final team.
Any thoughts welcome.
