John Maguire was a tall, bearded, right-arm fast-medium bowler who played three Tests for Australia in 1983-84. Although he made his state debut in 1977-78, it wasn't until 1981-82 that he secured a regular place. In 1982-83 he took 28 wickets and made the first of his 23 one-day appearances. In April 1983 he toured Sri Lanka without playing in a Test, but the following December made his debut against Pakistan at Melbourne. He played twice more on the 1983-84 tour of West Indies, taking 26 wickets at 24.80 on the trip. He was picked for the 1985 tour of England, but instead decided to throw in his lot with the rebel side which toured South Africa. In the twilight of his career he played two seasons for Eastern Province (1989-1991) and one for Leicestershire (1991).
