1961 Intervarsity Men

January 1st, 1961 - submitted by the black angels

Rod Clausens - definitely a Blue Barry (Jock) Larkins John (Johnny) Liddelow – also a Blue I think Barry Dyke – changed surname to Bennett David Arnott Kayzes Zdanavicius Brian Arnott Ralph Treloar John Mercer (captain) Len 'Alf' Arnott

I seem to remember that there were twelve of us but that might have been in the A-Grade Vic Championships squad: Larkins and Zdanavicius were not in this latter squad.

The guys on the left are not really taller – parallax effect. We weren’t a tall squad. John Mercer and Barry Bennett were the centres at 6’3’’ (about 190cm).

Alan Landells was the coach and in one season he turned me into a much improved player: I think he did this for us all.

Len and Alf Arnott were brothers and went to Box Hill High: Dave was a country boy
