The signatures are Hassett (Captain), Benaud (12th man), Harvey, Hole, Ian Johnson, Bill Johnston, Langley, Lindwall, McDonald, Miller, Morris and Ring. A heavyweight team by any account, with eight former Invincibles and five future Australian Captains.

The signatures are Hassett (Captain), Chambers, Fitchett (12th man), Harvey, Hill, Ian Johnson, Bill Johnston, Loxton, Colin McDonald, Ian McDonald, Ring and Thoms. Six of the team played with the Invincibles; in fact, only Chambers, Fitchett and Ian McDonald were not capped for Australia (although Thoms and Hill played in only one and three Tests respectively).
