Profile

Charlie Oliver died at Brisbane after a very short illness on September 25, aged 71. A Canterbury man, he became one of his country's most famous sportsmen. As a cricketer he toured Australia twice and England once in the mid- 1920s. Then his rugby took precedence. He played at home for New Zealand in 1928, toured Australia with the teams of 1929 and 1934 and was vice-captain and star player of the 1935 All Blacks in Britain. He was a strong running and imaginative centre threequarter. Eventually he and his family went to live in Australia.
