No, not Mr. Miller...surprising, as he was pretty much a fixture of the team at the time

Ally Naughton back row far right, or his brother?

I think this may be 1945/6 which would explain why Bevan isnt featured and would also rule out the Naughton brothers.

Well done Silver2 for getting the correct season - Bevan had already played his first trial match on 17th November 1945 but had to return to Australia for demob and didn't come back till the next season...so this is the immediate post-war "transitional" team which didn't yet feature many of the stalwarts of the later 40's who were still awaiting demob themselves....The ball carrier hasn't been guessed yet, so I'll end the misery and name Billy Belshaw.... here's the pic with the teamsheet: date was 9th March 1946 at Wilderspool against Wigan, and was a right trouncing, 0-38....another reason why quite a few names here didn't last all that much longer as better players became available:

BTW, George Taylor also features in my avatar....

Does anyone know what colours the kit here was?

Nice job everyone!

I should have got John Rothwell as he was my son in laws grandad. For the colours I'd go for blue shirts with yellow cuffs, white shorts and blue socks.
