An all-rounder, Rigg was a member of the Western Australian Sheffield Shield-winning team in 1947/48. He played in two matches, including their win over Queensland which secured the Shield for the first time in the state’s history. Rigg’s contribution towards a successful campaign was limited, with 34 runs in four innings and no wickets. In all first-class matches that summer, he took just three wickets with his leg spin, despite bowling over 500 balls. His bowling was used less frequently in future seasons. He scored both of his first-class half-centuries in 1947/48, and both against national teams. He scored 54 not out against the touring Indian team and also put in his best performance with the ball by dismissing two batsmen, including their best in Vijay Hazare. Playing against an Australian XI soon after, Rigg made 65 in the first innings, after initially retiring hurt on five. He also took the wicket of opener Bill Brown but conceded 65 runs in his six overs. It was perhaps his best match, as he had made his half-century against an attack featuring Keith Miller and four other bowlers who would later form part of “The Invincibles”.
Rigg attended Aquinas College, Perth, and was playing first-grade cricket while still at school. He played Australian rules football and was the leading goal-kicker for WANFL club Perth in 1943. The following year he enlisted in the Australian Army and served overseas. A rover, he had a stint at West Perth before returning to Perth after the war. Towards the end of the decade he gave up football so he could concentrate on his promising cricket career. He however still remained active outside of cricket by playing baseball, and was a state representative in the Claxton Shield.
In a long and successful career with the Perth Cricket Club, Rigg was one of the finest all-rounders in the club’s history. In 252 matches from 1941 to 1964 he scored over 8,200 runs and took 325 wickets. He is a Life Member and was named in the Team of the Century at the 150th Anniversary function held in 2012.
