“Worcester and England leg- spinner Roly Jenkins [had] a flippant attitude towards the amateur*…. had produced a well-written piece on spin bowling. Walter Robbins, a class- conscious autocrat who found it inconceivable that a mere professional could be so erudite, asked him who wrote it for him. Jenkins replied: ‘I wrote it myself, Sir. Who read it for you?**”
*Amateur in this instance means a ‘gentleman’ cricketer who played for ‘fun’ unlike socially inferior professionals who played for wages.
**This remark ended his England Test career.
