          Actually, it does matter. According to the IRFU Website, in the England game , the props were P O'Callaghan and T A Moroney, against France S.MacHale and S.A Hutton propped.
          Ken Kennedy, Bill Mc Bride, Mick Molloy, Mick Doyle, Ken Goodall, and Noel Murphy played in both games.


          EDIT: there's a photo archive that included this image of the Programme It's the Irish Photo archive website

              I think the no 3 is Sammy Hutton and we're looking at the back of Al Moroney's head at the front. However I don't think your picture is from the 1967 Ireland v England game. Definitely a French side,Isn't that the handsome Benoit Dauga second from the back on the French side,Here's a picture of the Irish team that played England.Note the different ref.

                From the front, Kennedy, McHale, Molloy, Hutton, McBride, Goodall, Murphy and Doyle as ever the tail gunner, the full 8.

                  Some things to note:
                  • "Willie John" Mc Bride was actually called "William James". In his early career, he was always called "Bill" until some Brit Journo decided to call him "Willie John" and the name stuck.
                  • Ken Goodall ( A Chemical Engineering student at the time of the match) played "Lock". He did not play "Number Eight" even though that was the number on his back.

                      Just to clarify, correct me if I am wrong, Molloy and McBride were the second-rows wearing 4 and 5, Goodall was the lock-forward or number 8, as we say now, wearing the jersey numbered 8.

                        Correct and right. A number of years ago, a Man, Kavanagh, I think, was his name, died. The TV reports said that he had played "Number Eight" for Ireland, in the sixties. No-one played "Number Eight" for Ireland in the sixties. As the screen-grab of the Programme above showed, the position was known as "Lock" or "Lock Forward", because he "Locked" the scrum.
