Profile

Ray Robinson, who died in his home town of Stockton, New South Wales on August 10, 1965, aged 51, led a shadowed life working as a labourer after playing just one Test in 1936-37. By making heavy scores with style and panache, Ray Robinson forced his way into the team for the Brisbane match but was dismissed for two and three (out hooking as Australia collapsed to defeat), was demoted to 12th man for the next game and then disappeared from the Test scene. He played later for South Australia, moved back to New South Wales and then went to Otago, but never recovered either the form or the style of his youth.
