Biography

Giant St George forward joined the club from the local juniors after serving in the Army during the war. Playing for NSW against NZ in 1948, Holland was first selected in the Second Test against the Kiwis, and produced a grand display. A Kangaroo tourist in 1948-49, 'Dutchy' Holland played in the First Test against Great Britain at Leeds (as well as in 18 other matches) and appeared in two more Tests against NZ the following year. Holland was a prop in St George's grand final win over Souths in 1949 and completed his Test career with three matches against Great Britain in 1950. In Australia's 15-3 win in the Second Test he kicked his first ever goal; his final Test appearance was in the historic 5-2 win over Great Britain to win the Ashes in 1950. Holland passed away in 1994, aged 71.
