TEAMS

William Bruce was the first Australian southpaw to tour England. Whether opening or in the middle order, he was a real dasher, but his uncertain defence left him vulnerable. He played some fine innings, though, most notably a delightful 80 at Adelaide in 1894-95. He was also a useful medium-pacer, and seven of his 12 Test victims were out bowled. He later became a solicitor. Bruce was found drowned in his native Melbourne in 1925.
