Politician and founder of the Democrats political party Don Chipp played three games for the Gorillas in 1947.

For a discussion leading to a complete naming of the players, see http://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/need-help-who-is-this-and-what-year-is-that.948370/

With the identification of the players, the match can also be identified.
Leo Monaghan played only two home and away matches (Rounds 18 and 19) of which Bert Clay did not play round 19. This is confirmed as all other identified players played round 18 and Frank Curcio, who played 18 matches, but is not in the photo,did not play round 18.

George Coates and Heinz Tonn are on the team list, but are not in the photo.
