Leo Patrick Devereaux O'Connor, who died on January 16, 1985, aged 94, played successfully for Queensland in the years leading up to their admission to the Sheffield Shield in 1926-27. In their first match, against New South Wales at Brisbane, he made 196 towards Queensland's winning target of 400. They were bowled out for 391. In the return match at Sydney a fortnight later O'Connor scored 103 and 143 not out and helped his side to a brilliant victory. There were four other hundreds in the same match - by Macartney, Jackson, Kippax and Oxenham. At 38, however, O'Connor was considered too old for the Australian team.
