Ben Pobjie is a writer and comedian whose promising rugby career was tragically cut short the day he stopped playing rugby and had a pizza instead. The most he has ever cried was the day Balmain lost the 1989 grand final. Today he enjoys the frolics of Wallabies, Swans, baggy greens, and Storm.

Personally I think it would be a shame if Kevin Pietersen were suspended for his comments on the umpiring during the Big Bash semi-final, and not just because if he gets banned he’ll be unable to join Brett Geeves in the Players Who Have Been The Subjects Of Darren Lehmann’s Dickish Criticisms Invitational XI.
