TEAMS

A right-hand opening batsman, Sam Trimble was a stalwart of Queensland cricket and was unfortunate never to closer to international honours than being 12th man for Australia against West Indies in 1964-65. During his most successful years in the mid 1960s, Bill Lawry and Bob Simpson had a stranglehold as Australia's openers, and head to be content with scoring heavily for his state. In 1970-71 he smashed 177 against an MCC attack which included John Snow and Peter Lever, but by then he was 36 and his chance had gone. After retirement, he run the indoor nets at the Gabba for many years.
