Biography

Harry Finch was an outstanding winger who partnered the great Benny Wearing in four premiership-winning seasons with the Rabbitohs (1926-29). The club defeated Newtown in the 1929 final but Finch was absent from the match, touring England with Tom Gorman's Kangaroos. There he played in 10 minor matches on tour, scoring 84pts (16t, 18g), but did not appear in a Test.
