Profile

Dr Owen Rock was a slightly-built, fast-scoring opening batsman who played in five matches for New South Wales in 1924-25 and 1925-26 after attracting attention with constant success for Sydney University. He made an immediate impact, scoring 127, 27*, 235 and 51 in his first two matches, and he was rewarded with an appearance in the Test Trial. However, he subsequently qualified as a doctor and played no more first-class cricket. His maiden hundred was the first to be recorded on the famous Sydney scoreboard.
