Biography

Cootamundra product first represented NSW in 1928 while playing for Young. A speedy lock forward and fine cover defender Kingston made his Test debut in Australia’s Third Test win over England in the 1928 Ashes series before touring with the 1929-30 Kangaroos. He played in 26 matches on tour, including the Third Test draw and historic Fourth Test against England. Kingston, who scored the most tries by a forward on the tour (18), crossed for 4 tries in the Kangaroos’ 42-19 win over ‘The Rest’ on his return to Australia. A member of Cootamundra’s Maher Cup team Kingston continued to represent NSW until 1934 when he decided to try his luck in Sydney with Wests. Kingston successfully sought a release from the club when he dropped to reserve grade and played for Werris Creek. He later moved to Nambucca Heads where he passed away prematurely, aged 49.
