Profile

A more than useful wicketkeeper and middle-order batsman, Roger Woolley was brought into the Australian side against Sri Lanka in 1982-83 to stand in for the indisposed Rodney Marsh on the strength of a domestic season in which he scored 551 runs at 42.38. In his only appearance he did not bat but held five catches. He went to the Caribbean the following winter as Wayne Phillip's understudy, but it was a far from happy tour as Australia were hammered 3-0. Woolley played his second and final Test in Antigua as Australia experimented by using Phillips as an out-and-out opening bat in a side ravaged by injuries. Australia lost by an innings, Woolley scoring 13 and 8. He briefly captained Tasmania but it was a tough period for the state and his wicketkeeping suffered as a result, and in his last couple of seasons he played as a specialist batsman.
