Where Is He Now?

Tne supero fielding of the South Africans during this tour, has thrown into disturbing re-

lief the extent to which the Australian standard in that department of the game has slipped in recent years. South Australians suffi- ciently long in the tooth to have memories of cricket 20 or 30 years ago will sigh for the return of a dashing outfielder whose brilliance always will be a measuring stick. This former St. Peter's' College boy added 40 or 50 runs to every innings he played for the State by his wonderful work in the field. Off the bat alone he scored 1,242 runs at an average of 36 for SA in first-class cricket. What's Happened To J. W. RYMILL? Jack Rymill made his de- but in district cricket with East -Torrens in 1920-21 and soon made an impress- sion as a hard-hitting left handed batsman and a brilliant fieldsman. After two or three sea- sons with East Torrens Rymill, with Len Bowley (father of present-day   player, Bruce), W. S.   ('Pepper') Stirling and others had to transfer alle- giance to Kensington (ad- mitted to the competition in 1923-24). 1924-25 was a great sea- son for Jack Rymill. He hit up 820 runs at 74 for Ken- sington; scored his first century for the State (110 v. NSW at Adelaide Oval) and followed it with his highest first-class score of 146 run out against Maurice Tate to contribute materially to SA's defeat of the Englishmen by 10 wickets. Altogether Rymill scored four centuries for SA, but figures do not reflect his great value to the side as   a fieldsman. For 28 years -broken by his war ordeal (he was a POW)— Jack Rymill has been with Goldsbrough Mort & Co. Ltd., and he is in the Adelaide office now. He's married, has a daughter and lives at Unley Park.— Harry Kneebone
