    Andrew Eime, John Saint, Shawn Flegler and Brad Wigney some extra random names from the period.

    I loved watching Canberra play. Merv Hughes and Mike Velletta both well past their prime leading a bunch of random kids and Brad Haddin.

    Laughed when I saw Sean Cary get a mention in today's paper RE: the Kookaburra/Duke stuff. Came to Victoria and played around the corner from me in a local competition, took the mickey.

    Ben Oliver's groins gave way, think both Victoria and Tasmania thought he could have been something quite special, similar to Andrew McDonald. Only 33 now.

    And David Bandy for a more recent version. Bandy actually performed pretty well for someone who looked so ordinary at first glace though; absolutely killer grade cricketer too.

    Remeber Brett Swain? Short run up and would hardly give the batsmen an inch in limited overs cricket. Made it so hard to score runs off, and yet little chance in gaining a wicket bowling at 120k's.

    Ben Johnson
    Paul Nobes
    Graeme Rummans (still a grade genius, hit 114* including a four off the last ball to win on Sunday)
    Darren Dempsey
    James Brayshaw

    Am I right in saying that Brad Wigney's brother Stuart played AFL football?

    Yeah; he was one of the old "new ball specialist" bowlers, who'd bowl their ten out up front and then go for a rub-down at the twenty over mark. You don't see nearly as many of them the world over anymore; I think it's partly because teams like to use spinners and part-time in the middle overs as to lengthen their batting lineup and therefore need their opening bowlers to bowl at the death as well. The main reason is probably just the way opposition batting lineups pace their innings though; you can't just get away with bowling accurate length up front anymore.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
