Coats, James, who died in Brisbane on June 8, 2002, aged 88, played all three games on Queensland's southern tour in 1937-38 but was unable to improve on the brisk 46 he made against Victoria on debut, going in at No. 3 and top-scoring in the second innings. All told he scored 127 runs at 21.17 and was relegated to twelfth man when the team returned to Brisbane.
