Blackie was a bow-legged off-spinner notorious for his impassioned appeals and for his Test debut at 46 years and 253 days. His partnership with another veteran, left-armer Bert Ironmonger, with St.Kilda and Victoria was a joy for connoisseurs of spin bowling. Only Ironmonger (862) took more wickets in District Cricket than Blackie.
