Profile

A sound wicketkeeper and dependable lower-order batsman who entered the NSW team following the retirement of Brian Taber, Rixon was thrust into the spotlight when chosen for Australia against India and the West Indies in 1977-78 after Rodney Marsh and Richie Robinson were signed up for World Series Cricket. After being Marsh's understudy during the 1981 Ashes tour he received his next international opportunity when Marsh retired and Wayne Phillips was injured in 1984-85. He signed for a lucrative, but rebel, tour of South Africa in 1985-86 which ended his Test career. At the time of his retirement in 1988 he had played more games for New South Wales than anyone else.
