Profile

Ernie "Slogger" Bromley was a tall and thin left-hand batsman who had a remarkable throwing arm. In 1933 he took part in a throwing contest at the MCG; his first throw clattered into a barrier 130 yards away erected to protect spectators. His returns to the wicket were flat and hard, a rarity at the time.
