Player with ball and what looks like he's wearing an international rugby cap could be Thomas Graham who played for Newport RFC and was capped 12 times between 1890 and 1895,born 1866 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.According to WRU records.He would have been about 39/40 when the photograph was taken.

SORRY !! I should have said he was about 49/50 when the photograph was taken ???? He looks a lot younger than that doesn't he. I now have my doubts as to whether or not the player is Thomas Graham. More than likely he's the gent sat next to him on his right.He looks as if he was a very big man - a forward no doubt.
