    Yep Bradman was supposed tobe very good at tennis, table tennis and golf. He could have played Davis Cup and was as good a golfer as all the pros.

    If it weren't for forgetting to delete the bit at the bottom, I'd have thought he was sad enough to know it all!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Possibly?
    It makes me cringe just to try and get my head around him.
    Just like Sobers. Both were just good beyond comprehension.

    I think Kepler Wessels represented SA at Archery... As well as Aus and SA at cricket...

    So who would the better sportsman be? Bradman or CB Fry?

    Greg Chappell played for Australia at age level at baseball, (I think his brother Trevor did it as well).

    Sobers played for Barbados at football, table tennis and dominos (I kid you not), a mate of Sobers when he played league cricket in England once managed to get him a trail as a 'keeper at Everton, but he said no.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    The bloke whop faced the last ball when Trevor Chappell bowled underarm to, played for the All Blacks.

    Herschelle Gibbs was a schoolboy rugby star (I think he played for South Africa).

    You missed maybe New Zealands most well-known dual international (other than the Golden One Jeff Wilson): Mr Brian McKechnie of New Zealand was a dual international lucky enough to be involved in two of our nations most controversial sporting moments.
    The first was the infamous underarm ODI in which McKechnie was the reciever of the dubious bowl when playing for the Black Caps against Australia.
    The second is still well know in New Zealand. It was 20-30 years ago and the All Blacks were playing Wales and were behind by 1 or 2 points I don't remember the exact details as I wasn't born at the time. Anyway the All Blacks had a lineout withing kicking distance and on commencing the throw Andy Hayden dived out of the lineout and feigned a push was given by the opposition. The referee gave a penalty to New Zealand which McKechnie kicked and the All Blacks won the test against Wales.

    yeah the penalty was actually given for a different & legitimate incident in the lineout, not for Hayden's dive.....

    1978 All Black Grand Slam Tour of Great Britain Captained by Graeme Mourie - the last time The All Blacks have played all the Home Nations on the same tour, and this was the last Test - v Wales to secure the Grand Slam

    I seem to recall that Mark Burgess may have actually Captained both the NZ cricket & soccer teams in the early '70s.......
