Dr Roy Minnet, died at Manly, New South Wales, on October 21, 1955, aged 67. He had given up cricket aged 26 to devote himself to his career as a doctor. Before that he had established himself as a spirited batsman and lively fast-medium bowler, regarded as more talented than his two elder brothers who also played for New South Wales. He played the first of his nine Tests against England at Sydney in 1911-12 and raced to 90 in 111 minutes, overshadowing even Victor Trumper. He struggled on the slow, damp wickets in England in 1912 and when he came home played less often. However, he took 10 for 84 in his final first-class match, against Victoria in December 1914, including 8 for 50 in the first innings.
