Jack Raphael was a brilliant all-round sportsman who played first-class cricket to a high level and represented England nine times as a three-quarter. It was reported that he possessed "a beautiful kick, a brilliant field, and possessed of a good turn of speed, he was a fine natural player, even if his special qualities did not always make for success as one of a line of four three-quarters in international encounters". He gained his blue as a freshman at Oxford in 1901, not only appeared for his University against Cambridge on four occasions, but only once failed to secure a try. In 1910 he captained the British Lions in a tour of Argentina, consisting of the South American nation's inaugural Test. He died as a result of wounds received in the Battle of Messines Ridge.
