    CW in the Sunday Star Times

    With many thanks to Voltman for finding this:


    Batsman, wicketkeeper, writer, scientist, designer ... there's more to Peter McGlashan than meets the eye.

    As a wicketkeeper, he's pushing Brendon McCullum in the New Zealand Twenty20 cricket side.

    As a batsman, his unique style is earning him a reputation as a go-to man when you need runs in a hurry.

    As a designer, he has made his mark with his own wicketkeeping mask, which resembles the one worn by baseball catchers, and is working on batting gloves with manufacturer Aero.

    With a degree in biomechanics, he has had input into a cricket shoe made by Nike.

    As a writer? Well, let's say, blogger extraordinaire Iain O'Brien has a real rival in this New Zealand teammate.

    Without being disrespectful to O'Brien, it's fair to say McGlashan's blog on cricketweb.net is of a higher intellectual order. A recent post references Albert Einstein, Thomas Alva Edison and Leonardo da Vinci

    Great publicity, shows you what a great move it was to get some pro-cricketers writing for the site.

    Last year it was the Indepedent, last night Burgey and a couple of others were quoted in the online version of The Times and now the Sunday Star Times. Heck I think we have been quoted in Syndey's Daily Telegraph. Shows the quality of posters we have on here and indeed the quality of the website and forum to have this much exposure.

    Well done James, Peter McGlashan and the CW team
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    Nice
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
    RIP Craigos

    lol at Burgey, Noble One and JimmyGS getting a guernsey in The Times! That's awesome. Although Jimmy would be unimpressed being described as an Aussie?

    Wish I'd said something wittier than " "

    Very fair call. O'Brien's blog floats around simple most of the time, occasionally dipping down to cringe-inducing.

    You got quoted in the Sunday Times over here as a 'blogger down under' after the England v Netherlands game.
