Profile

Robbie Langer was a broad-shouldered aggressive left-hand batsman who had shown excellent form in his first three full seasons, scoring 1657 runs at 50.21. Those runs and the way he made them made him an obvious signing for World Series Cricket in 1977, although he was very much a peripheral character. "My uncle Robbie played World Series Cricket, which in itself added to the joy of this new game," his nephew Justin later recalled. "His involvement meant cricket became more than something we could watch on the television." He continued to score well on his return to the state game and he retired after 1982-83.
