THE 100 CLUB

"The 100 Club" celebrates those players who have played 100 or more first class matches for Queensland. A permanent display of paintings of the 11 Queenslanders who have achieved this magnificent feat so far is on display in the Century Room, which is part of The Pavilion Wedding and Conference Centre at Allan Border Field. 

Ken Mackay

"Slasher" Mackay was of the State's finest allrounders and most admired characters. As a batsman, he matched a workmanlike technique with fearsome determination while with the ball, he was a disciplined medium pacer with a knack for breaking partnerships. He played 37 Tests, and captained Queensland on 30 occasions in a first class career that spanned 17 seasons. He was named in the Queensland Cricket Team Of The Century in 2000.

Trevor "Cracker" Hohns made his debut for Queensland as a teenage batsman in 1972-73 but later forged a name for himself as a leg-spinning allrounder.

He captained Queensland on 14 occasions. Later served for more than a decade as the Chairman of the Australian selection panel.

An aggressive opening batsman whose trademark lofted drives helped deflate many an opening attack, Trevor "Tank" Barsby formed one half of a dynamic top order partnership with Matthew Hayden during the 1990s. An exceptional performer in his own right, Barsby brought up his 100th Sheffield Shield appearance in his final match for Queensland - the 1996-97 Shield Final won by Queensland in Perth.

Undeniably Queensland's greatest ever home-grown batsman, he ranks alongside Ian Healy as the State's best ever cricketer.

A member of Queensland's pioneering 1994-95 Sheffield Shield winning side, he scored a century on debut and his 27 first class hundreds for the Bulls rank second only to Martin Love.

Andrew Symonds

One of the most exciting cricketers ever to grace the Gabba, he was dangerous with the ball, murderous with the bat, and dynamite in the field. Man of the Match in the 2001-02 Sheffield Shield final, he played in six finals in total for three victories. Hit 14 first class centuries for his State helped him into the top 20 runscorers of all time for the Bulls, and also took 123 wickets.
