Profile

Roy Howard was a top-order batsman whose career started after World War Two, but after a few appearances for Victoria, mainly against the lesser opposition of Tasmania, he broke through in 1948-49 when a hundred against the Tasmanians secured him an extended run in the side. His good form continued in 1949-50 and at the end of that season he was selected for the tour of New Zealand. Led by Bill Brown, it was not a full-strength tour and did not include any Tests, but Howard acquitted himself well and against Otago made a career-best 141. He started 1950-51 with another hundred, against the touring MCC, but that was to be his final season for the state. He also represented Victoria at baseball and was a grade umpire after retiring as a player.
