Hugh Motley Thurlow, who died on December 3, 1975, aged 72, came into prominence by taking 6 for 60 for Queensland against Victoria in December 1929; in the course of doing this he broke Woodfull's finger and put him out of action for the rest of the season. After this he did useful work for several seasons for his State as a fast bowler and in 1932 was picked for the Fourth Test against South Africa, a match in which O'Reilly made his first appearance for Australia. Thurlow, who opened the bowling, failed to get a wicket and did not play in a Test Match again.
