"An outstanding leg-spin bowler for University, Richmond, Victoria and Australia during the 70s and early 80s, the former Kyabram Fire Brigade player displayed excellent control with his bowling. Higgs spun the Vics to a Sheffield Shield win in Adelaide in 1979/80 and registered several fine performances at Test level. At District level, he made many batsmen look incompetent.

After retiring, he became a respected national selector for a decade."
