SA High Schools v Independent Schools 1992 – Class Warfare (Queenshead Revisited)

The 1991 S.A High Schools v the S.A Independent Schools match boasted a cavalcade of stars. In 1992, the Wakelin name became plural, and a young up-and comer by the name of Darcy displayed his elite, gut-running abilities for the world to see. Where, asks The Swishter, are they now?

Great list of footballers. Who are they? And where are they now? Classic from Swish Schwerdt as he challenges us to fill in any detail we might know. If you know who they are, and where they ended up playing their footy, and what they’re doing now, add a comment. (Now with a photo of one of the teams)
