Biography

Pioneer three-quarter from Newtown's RU ranks played in the rebel series against the NZ 'All Golds' in 1907. A lightweight player with a great attacking ability, Cheadle turned professional with Newtown in 1908 and was selected in the first Test series held in this country. Following three Test appearances against NZ in 1908, he toured with the 1908-09 Kangaroos but played in just 7 matches. Cheadle's final Test appearance was against NZ in 1909. In 1915 he enlisted in the AIF and served at Gallipoli where he rose to the position of Lieutenant. Shot whilst serving in France in 1916, Cheadle was buried in Armentieres.
