    Am I right in saying that Brad Wigney's brother Stuart played AFL football?
    Stuart Wigney yes a Centre-Half-Back I think for Footscray. Might have even worn the Big V. Ben Oliver's brother also played full-forward for Carlton I think.

    Wonder what Darren Webber is up to these days.

    Edit: And 'Jamie' Brayshaw's brother too. Back Pocket type for Nth Melb.

I gave him guitar lessons for a few years, one day he calls me and says to come round to his house, he just got back from the 06 champions trophy (he was a media officer with the aussie team back then), and he had the actual champions trophy at his house, and boxes of John Buchanan's team meeting notes and random stuff, VERY cool to read the thousands of pages of breakdowns of players scoring areas. For instance, there was this entire 'book' on which bowlers had been hit for 4 by Chanderpaul and the exact distance he was from the crease when he hit the four, tons of maths garbage, the aim was to calculate how fast you had to bowl and at what length to make Chanders hit the ball in a particular area, not to get him out but to stop the fours. There was about 200 pages on this just for Chanders, and about 70 similar ones for other players. Graeme just laughed and said the players just nodded and walked away when Buchanan was crapping on with this stuff.

    Used to utterly dominate in grade cricket, seemed to get 5+ every week. Gigantic swaing. Should have played more 4-day cricket, that's where he was at his best. Playing too much OD cricket nerfed his movement in the air, I reckon.

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.
    Have to be able to hold a stick and field well these days too. Swain couldn't bat or field well soooo....

    Nice story mate apart from the Bailey part. You would have been in heaven reading all that stuff!

    Some classic, blasts from the past over the past page or so.

    LOL at Scott Kremerskothen popping into someone's head whenever they eat a McChicken. Personally thought that Kade Harvey was very good in one dayers.

    Yep Comets for sure, especially early doors when they had Haddin, Higgs and Stuart Karpinnen in that first year.

    Hall O'Meagher. Beat him for a random!

    I wish Fox Sports showed classic domestic ODs during the innings break instead of Internationals. No idea if they have the rights to them or what.

    If you can upload some Merv Hughes in his Comets colours that would be quality.

    Any footage of Jamie Siddons, y'know, a guy who could actually play, would be good.
