Bill Stuart became Hornby’s first international when he represented New Zealand in two Tests against England in 1924.
The flashing young winger recovered from a knee injury suffered in the 1924 trials to win selection in the series opener, scoring a try in New Zealand’s 16-8 defeat of England in front of 22,000 fans at Carlaw Park.
Stuart missed the second Test in Wellington but played for Canterbury against the tourists before returning for the third Test in Dunedin.
He later transferred to defending CRL champion Addington in 1930.
