Carlos Mold was a rugby union international and cricket international who represented Argentina's rugby side in 1910[1] and the Argentina cricket team from 1920-1922.[2]

Early life[edit]

Charles Trevor Mold was born on 20 July 1885 in Argentina.[2] His father, Charles Mold, was a broker who had emigrated to Argentina from England with his wife Elizabeth. Charles had a younger sister, Alice. He attended Dulwich College in England and there excelled at sport playing in the school cricket (1901–1902) and rugby sides.

Rugby union career[edit]

Mold played his club rugby for Buenos Aires Cricket & Rugby Club and was selected to play the touring Combined British in their 1910 tour of Argentina. This was Argentina's first recognised test and although they lost to the tourists[1] it was a great boon to rugby in the country.

Military[edit]

During World War I, Mold was enrolled in the Inns of Court OTC, registration 14279[3] His occupation at this time was a Rancher.

Cricket[edit]

As a cricketer he played for his school side, which in itself was a distinction given Dulwich College's reputation for cricket at the turn of the twentieth century. He played a number of matches for the South of Argentina vs the North of Argentina, from 21 February 1909 to 2 March 1924 and after the First World War also played in international matches for Argentina against both Chile and Brazil, opening the batting on more than one occasion.[4]
