Test record: 4 Tests (1928, 1932) – 3 tries (12 points)
Auckland three-quarter Claude List played four Tests for New Zealand against the English tourists of 1928 and ’32, scoring three tries.
While playing for Ellerslie, List was called up at centre for the 1928 series opener and scored a first-half try as New Zealand carved out a surprise 17-13 victory at Carlaw Park. He represented Auckland Province and Auckland against the visitors over the following week but was replaced by Hec Brisbane in the Test side for the remaining two matches.
Shifting to Marist in 1931, List was recalled for the following year’s series against England – one of seven players from the club to feature in the series.
New Zealand was swept 3-0 but List produced a memorable performance in the second Test in Christchurch, scoring both of his team’s tries in a 25-14 loss. He also turned out for Auckland against England again during the tour.
List later transferred to Mount Albert and coached that club during the 1940s.
