John Sleightholme, played for England, Northhampton & Bath - but which other clubs did he play for as he developed?

**Edit** Wikki has missed 1 out so don't just rely on that!

14 Tony Underwood
13 Will Carling (c)
12 Phil de Glanville
11 Rory Underwood
10 Rob Andrew
9 Kyran Bracken
1 Jason Leonard
2 Brian Moore
3 Victor Ubogu
4 Martin Johnson
5 Martin Bayfield

8 Ben Clarke

...and the Scots:

15 Gavin Hastings (c)

10 Gregor Townsend
9 Gary Armstrong
1 Alan Sharp
2 Kenny Milne

A full house.....Try-Conversion-Penalty-DG?

Or just scored all of the points? If the latter then Callard? Andrew?
