Versatile North Shore Albions/Devonport back Stan Webb toured Australia and Britain with New Zealand teams during the mid-1920s.
Webb debuted for Auckland in 1922 and was called up to the New Zealand squad for the 1925 tour of Australia. Also adept at centre, fullback and five-eighth, he was predominantly utilised at halfback and scored three tries in six appearances on the trip.
Webb scored in a try in Auckland’s 18-all draw with the crack Queensland tourists later in 1925, earning him the halfback role for New Zealand’s 35-14 loss to the visitors three days later.
‘Pip’ was chosen for New Zealand’s ill-fated tour of Britain the following year and was again used in the halves, but injury restricted his appearance tally he was not one of the four players picked at five-eighth or halfback during the Test series.
Webb played for a New Zealand XIII against Auckland in 1927 and continued to represent his province, while he later joined the Ellerslie club.
