TEAMS

Gorube, Thomas Underwood, born at Taranaki, New Zealand, on September 2, 1857, died at Glenferrie, Victoria, on August 5, aged 69. He was a steady batsman, a medium-paced bowler, and a very good field at cover-point and long-on. As a member of the Australian team of 1880, he had the distinction of taking part in the first Test-match ever played in this country. His highest innings in England was 61 in the match with Yorkshire at Huddersfield. For the East Melbourne C.C. he had a batting average of 155.33 for the season of 1879-80, and for that side against South Melbourne on the latter's ground in March and April, 1884 he scored 101 and 98, in the second innings adding 174 for the last wicket with Mr. G. Gordon.
