    Shane Warne was a budding AFL player, but gave cricket a go in the end when he was rejected by St Kilda.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    A rather random bump. Anyway, on Tindill (who played test cricket and test rugby for NZ), I'd say he's the only dual international/dual official. Not only did he do the test cricket and rugby combo, but he also refereed a rugby test match and umpired in a cricket test in NZ.

    Not international but Errol Stewart, who played 6 ODI for South Africa (the last in 2002) also played for the Natal Sharks in the Currie Cup and Super 12 rugby for the Sharks franchise. Stewart won both the Currie Cup in rugby and cricket in 1995.

    When Stewart wasn't playing cricket or rugby, he was a lawyer and would have played more cricket for South Africa and gone to the 2003 World Cup but burned his bridges with the then UCB for not touring Zimbabwe (as captain on an A tour) on "moral grounds".

    Good. Weather is warm enough for a Shaky Isles resident like myself who is used to sub-zero. Just wish my back would stop being so ****ing sore.

    Brendon McCullum played first-five for the NZ Sec Schools team, he forced Dan Carter onto the wing. Broom also played in that team I think?

    I believe Dirk Nannes may have represented Australia at skiing. Although I'm not too sure cause in Aus, skiing has a similar profile to tiddlywinks.

    Do people who played cricket a junior level count (but a different sport professionally) as well?

    Alastair Hignall played 14 Union Tests for England at full-back during the amateur era, and played 170 FC and 138 OD games for Gloucestershire and Cambridge University.

    He's admittedly not a dual-international, as he only averaged 30 in FC as an opening bat, but an impressive record, none-the-less. He also commentates on Union for FiveLive.
    Or something.

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006

    The wikipedia article suggests that he's no longer commentating on rugby for 5Live. Not sure if this is related to his multiple sclerosis.

    Local boy too. Went to our (very minor) public school.

    Rob Andrew played FC cricket as well, but has a rather modest record.
