A very likeable young man with soft eyes and a bright smile. He was an extremely popular member of the team.
He strained the ligaments of his right shoulder against Auckland and a hamstring against Hawke's Bay; the one affected his tour and the other finished it. He was chosen as either a wing or a centre, but in the latter position was risked only a few times, for he had the fatal failing of always wanting to beat another man during an attacking run.
As a wing, he sometimes looked extremely dangerous but appearances were somewhat deceptive, for his swerve was not especially elusive and his running though swift, was not exceptional.
He was the leading try scorer in the team, his goal kicking at times being extremely sound, and he was much indebted to Don Clarke for a lesson or two. As it happened he suffered, as Clarke did at the end of his career, from the tortures of lack of confidence and toward the end of the tour in New Zealand lost his rhythm and accuracy.
