Jeff Moss was an upright, hard-hitting left-hand batsman who was pivotal in Victoria's Sheffield Shield success in 1978-79, scoring 748 runs at 68.00. Despite this, he was not called into the Packer-decimated Australian side which was being dissected by England that summer. But his chance finally came against Pakistan in Match 1979 when he was brought in to replace the injured Graham Yallop for the final Test against Pakistan at Perth, where he made 22 and an unbeaten 38. That won him a place in Australia's 1979 World Cup squad , but he made only one appearance, also against Pakistan. With the return of the rebels, he had no more opportunities, although he continued to score well at state level. In 1981-82, his final season, he scored 200 against Western Australia at St Kilda in a record third-wicket stand of 390 with Julien Wiener.
