Carston "Catchy" Catcheside played on the wing eight times for England, making his debut against Wales in 1924 in the first match of that season's Grand Slam success. He also became the first player to score in all four rounds of the Five Nations, a feat not equalled until 2002. He played twice in 1926 as a fullback, returning to wing for his final outings in 1927. His last game was marred by an injury which led to him having to leave the field in a defeat by Scotland. Between 1932 and 1940 he was honorary treasurer of the Northumberland Rugby Union.
