You seem to have: Rugby Coach (1991)(D&H Games)(M5)[cr AGL]

Ran VirusZ III on it and nothing found!

This has the same files as yours and none of them are executable! The startup-sequence is trying to run 'rugyboss' which appears to be a data file so not executable. The IPF of this game just has 1 file: 'rugby' which is 317kb.

These are the correct versions:
Rugby Coach (1991)(D & H Games)(M5)[cr NMS]
Rugby Coach (1991)(D & H Games)(M5)[cr SR]

Would it be possible to run the files on the disk? That was my startup sequence. Trying different combination to get games to work.
Oh and thanks for reply and looking into it for me.

As I posted, none of the files are executable, so no!

Either it's a data disk or someone forgot to copy the executable over, disksalve reports no deleted files.

The uploaded disk by "Jackoland" is useless.
He compiled a new Disk, which is FFS formated, even if there would be an executable on disk, you have to use KS2.0+ config, and such old games often refuses to work on KS2.0+ systems.
Because he compiled new disk, such operations like Disksalvage and so on are useless too.
I would prefer to upload original, even damaged disk!!

By the Way, uploaded disk seems not this one:

I suggest to use "DiskRipper" for imaging the Disk!

The Agile release is the same game as Nemesis/Skidrow, I looked at the wrong directory when checking.

The files on the disk look to hold data for other D&H Games as hex editing them shows text in them relating to sport:

derby day
rugby coach
rugbyboss
striker

The other file, mr1, is a sound sample of Arrested Developments Mr. Wendal?
