Rugby league career

Norman played 13 seasons in first grade in the NSWRFL, playing for Annandale between 1910-1914, South Sydney between 1915-1917 and 1919, and Eastern Suburbs Roosters in 1918, and 1920-1922. He was one of four brothers along, with Bernard, Roy and Ray, who played in the NSW Rugby Football League first-grade competition. Rex and Ray became only the second set of brothers to represent Australia, behind Viv and Bill Farnsworth. Rex was selected for Australasia for the 1921–22 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain. He played in 21 tour matches but did not play a test match.[2]

Norman was the NSW Rugby Football League's top point scorer in 1921.[1]

Cricket career

Norman also played first-class cricket for New South Wales, appearing in seven matches from 1918 to 1920. A left-arm fast-medium bowler, he took 31 wickets at 26.83.[3]

Later years

Norman finished his long career in Canowindra, New South Wales, captain-coaching both the local rugby league team and cricket team.
