Harry Moses was a defensive left-hand batsman with enormous reserves of patience who would have played more than six times for Australia had business commitments not prevented him from taking part on any tours to England. Although some critics rated him alongside Billy Murdoch in ability, he never reproduced his sparkling domestic form for Australia. In 1887-88 he made 297 for NSW against Victoria and in the same season scored 58 and 109 against the English tourists. After retiring he was a trustee of the SCG for many years.
