ROUGHT-ROUGHT, RODNEY CHARLES, died suddenly in London on May 5 after an accident, aged 71. When he went up to Cambridge, he had already made a considerable name in Minor County cricket, having headed the Norfolk bowling averages in 1929 with 59 wickets at 12.94. Taking seven for 36 in the first innings against Middlesex in his second match, he naturally made his Blue secure and headed the University averages in 1930 with 43 wickets at 18.93. In 1931 he lost his form and his place in the side, but next year regained both, and he and Farnes were a formidable pair. Rought-Rought's greatest asset was his ability to make the ball lift sharply off a length. One of three brothers who for many years did great service for Norfolk, he himself continued to take many wickets for the county up to 1939, besides being a valuable hitter in the lower half of the order. In all, over a career for Norfolk which lasted 13 years, he took 462 wickets at 15 runs each. His younger brother obtained his Blue at Cambridge in 1937.
