Profile

Reg Wood's only Test appearance was a classic case of right place, right time. Charterhouse educated (in 1876 he took 95 wickets at 7.10) he played six times for Lancashire (as an amateur) over five years before emigrating to Australia where he briefly played for Victoria as a professional. A left-arm quick bowler, his ungainly action led to murmurings that he threw although it is not believed he was ever called. When Billy Barnes was incapacitated - a punch aimed at Percy McDonnell, Australia's captain, instead connected with a wall - Wood was on hand and turned out three times for the tourists, including the Melbourne Test. The fairytale ended there, however, as batting at No. 10 he made 6 and 0. That was the end of his first-class career, and he became a coach in and around Melbourne.
