About Arthur Riley:
“Arthur Riley belongs to the South African colonial tourists, several of whom were persuaded to return to England as professionals after their tour of 1925. He played for the East Nan Proprietorial Mines club in Africa, and his ability is best gauged because he causes Elisha Scott to take a back seat. He’s big, wonderfully alert, has remarkable hands, and is always doing something spectacular.”
