Charlie Meyer : Doc Craven

Charlie was the all-round halfback who could play anywhere in the three-quarter line. Mr Markotter told me once that he was such a versatile player that he could have made the grade any day in any Springbok side he had ever seen. Over and above, he was a charming personality.
