"A large group of ex-Test players believe Eric Tweedale, who has just turned 90, is the oldest living Wallaby, prompting celebrations at a reunion last week. But Tweedale is a mere pup as R&M has been informed that Gordon Stone, who has just turned 97, holds that honour. Stone, who played one Test against the All Blacks in 1938, is, according to his family, in good health, lives in Bowral, follows rugby with great interest, and unlike his son, reads without the need of glasses."
Notes from John Brewer's Randwick Rugby History - Gordon Stone, an outstanding scrum half, joined Randwick in 1934 and played over 100 games for the club from 1934 to 1940. Playing in the 1934, 1938 and 1940 first-grade premiership-winning sides he also appeared 7 times for NSW. He coached the Randwick first grade side in 1954 and also turned his hand to cricket, regularly playing in the Randwick first grade side.
