Profile

Captain Reginald Hands, the oldest of three cricket-playing brothers, made only one Test appearance (alongside his brother, Phillip) against England at Port Elizabeth in 1913-14. Like his brothers, he won a rugby Blue at Oxford where he was a Rhodes Scholar and in 1909-10 was picked to play for the South v The Rest. In 1910-11 after two more trail games he played for England against France and Scotland. He was killed on the western front in 1918 while serving with the South African Artillery.
