Biography

Former South Sydney RU winger achieved the honour of scoring Souths’ first try in a rugby league premiership match in the club’s 11-7 win over Norths at Birchgrove Oval on April 20, 1908. Anderson’s four-try haul in NSW's 43-0 thrashing of Queensland in the first interstate match also credits him with being the first try-scorer for his state. He played in the centres in Australia's Third Test win against NZ in 1908 and although he was a member of the pioneer 1908-09 Kangaroos, he appeared in only 5 minor games in England. Anderson enlisted in the AIF in 1915 but despite seeing action in France the following year a recurring knee injury led to his medical discharge in 1918. In latter years this foundation member of the Souths club was a mere shadow of the player who had represented his country and died in 1928, aged just 41.
