My Brumbies TV debut, with Chris ‘Blocka’ Dutton from The Canberra Times – aired Thursday May 19:
Good times on the weekend, when I got back to Wagga Wagga to commentate the Brumbies-Waratahs Super Rugby trial game.
Since finishing up at ol’ Chucky Sturt-Riverina twenty years ago, I have been back to Wagga a few times. But this was the first time I’d seen the relatively new McDonald’s Park and the surrounding sporting complex. When I knew my way around Wagga back in the day (and I still do; not much has changed), this whole complex on the edge of the industrial estate was farm paddocks.
CLICK IMAGE FOR VIDEO: There’s no two ways about it, Hobart Hurricanes’ allrounder Dan Christian’s six onto the roof of the ‘Gabba in Brisbane last night was… HUGE!!!
117 metres huge, in fact, and Christian’s reaction says it all..
I sat down recently with the guys from The Roar, their video camera, a list of broad topics ranging from the state of West Indian cricket and the future of the Big Bash League through to my favourite moments from the Rugby World Cup and my predictions for the Australian Super Rugby conference next season, and let them fire questions at me.
