Biography

A classy half-forward flanker and centreman from Old Scotch, Holten had an unobtrusive style, and was an excellent mark and a fine kick.

Holten was also a fine cricketer with Melbourne and later became a Federal MP.

It was an interesting observation, as Holten became a conservative politician.
