Frank Tarrant was a genuine allrounder - an excellent left-arm spinner, a patient middle-order batsman and a good fielder. Born in Australia, he played a few times for Victoria before heading to Europe where he was on the MCC staff while he qualified for Middlesex, which he did in 1915, representing them for the decade before the Great War. Although he did return to Australia occasionally, his connection with Middlesex ruled him out of international consideration.
