All but one match of his first-class career came on New South Wales's tour of New Zealand in 1893-94, when he took 52 wickets in seven matches with his leg-spin, including 8 for 14 against Hawke's Bay. In the 160-run victory over New Zealand he opened the bowling and bowled unchanged throughout, taking 7 for 63 and 6 for 35, as well as top-scoring in New South Wales's first innings with 43.
He worked in the New South Wales Auditor-General's Department for 43 years. He died in 1932 and was survived by his wife and a son.
