Australia’s oldest Wallaby, Charles ‘Gordon’ Stone, has passed away aged 100.
Stone played one Test for the Wallabies against the All Blacks in 1938 and also represented the New South Wales Waratahs on seven occasions.
He also played 93 first-grade games for Randwick Rugby Club in Sydney.
After featuring against the All Blacks in 1938, Stone contributed to Australia’s war effort the 119th Australian General Hospital Unit in New Guinea, New Britain and Darwin, where he was stationed during the Darwin Bombings of 1942.
Australian Rugby Union chief executive Bill Pulver paid tribute to Stone.
“Gordon’s remarkable life is a reflection of his wonderful character and strength of spirit. He is someone who has lived some of Rugby’s great attributes of integrity, strong character and teamwork and we join his family in celebrating Gordon’s life,” Pulver said in an ARU statement.
Gordon passed away peacefully surrounded by his family.
