WATT, HOWARD HUGH, died on August 17, 2005, aged 94. "Sparkle" Watt was a fast bowler who took 44 wickets in 12 appearances for Western Province and North-Eastern Transvaal either side of the war. His six for 84 for Western Province against Griqualand West in 1934-35 put him in line to tour England in 1935, but only two fast bowlers were eventually chosen, though he was named in a 15-man squad to play Australia at Durban in 1935-36. Watt did represent South Africa at rugby, and was the last surviving pre-war Springbok. He spent some time in the United States, and dismissed Don Bradman cheaply twice while playing for Illinois against Arthur Mailey's privately raised Australian team in 1932. Watt later presented the ball to the Newlands museum.
