Career Stats & Summary

Biography

Norths pioneer earned the distinction of scoring the first Test try by an Australian player against England on the 1908-09 Kangaroo tour. Devereux was a fine winger/centre who had played in the 1907 rebel series against the NZ 'All Golds' while a member of Norths RU. Turning professional, he was a star on the Kangaroo Tour and played an impressive 30 matches (including all three Tests) as well as being top try-scorer with 17 tries. In 1922 Devereux made a remarkable comeback after a decade's absence and played three matches during the club's premiership-winning season.
