Sean loves to combine his love of sport and writing.
He played country football for 20 years in Victoria and Western Australia, along the way breaking, straining or tearing every bone, muscle or tendon in his body.
He recently won the Stringybark Australian Short Story History award for his depiction of the Aboriginal game of Marngrook and his work has appeared in various newspapers and anthologies.
He has covered recent editions of the Jayco-Herald Sun Tour and the Australian road cycling titles.
Despite a couple of second places in D grade club races he is still not quite as fast as Cadel!

Kangaroo supporters better soak up the good feelings that came from beating Geelong last week because their season is about to come to a grinding halt. The evidence was on display in the last quarter of their semi-final clash against the Cats when Tom Hawkins almost single handedly brought Geelong home. Hawkins was great all […]
Common sense states that only fit players should be selected for cut-throat finals games. The risk of losing a man early in a do-or-die clash is too great. And yet, when the player under question is a bona-fide star of the competition, the temptation to roll the dice and ‘see what happens’ is overwhelming. Geelong […]
Put a pair of oversized sun glass frames and an outrageous jacket onto Ben Brown and the young Kangaroo forward would be the spitting image of pop sensation Redfoo. But while Brown’s appetite for the footy matches Redfoo’s enthusiasm behind the microphone, that is where the comparison ends. You see, Brown in no novelty act. […]
