    Mickey Edwards was the surprise cult-hero of the Sydney Test, and we’re going to have a chat with the legend himself this arvo on Roar LIVE.

    Edwards lived out every Australian cricket fan’s dream – taking the field in a Test match for his country and stealing the show.

    One minute he was working in the Budgy Smugglers store in Manly on a Saturday morning, the next he was out in the middle playing in front of tens of thousands at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

    He’s got a ripper of a yarn and we can’t wait to hear all about it, so make sure you get your questions in the comments and we’ll put them to the great man at 5:45pm this afternoon.

    Roar Live will be streamed today on The Roar’s Facebook page and also on the site at 5:45pm (check the homepage). It will also be available as a podcast on Soundcloud and iTunes.

        You’re selling yourself short. That’s two separate questions.

      I think it’s safe to say there’s no reason for anyone else to ask questions, as Jason has asked them all for us.

      Nice work guys.

      Sounds like a decent level headed fella with a fair stash of talent under the hood, lets hope the injury-gods give him an even break.

      Riordan, you’re a good sport. I’ll do my best to assist when you next drop the feelers.
