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!

No matter what Richmond’s Ty Vickery achieves throughout the remainder of his career, he will always be remembered for the sickening hit he inflicted on retiring West Coast favourite Dean Cox last Friday night. The punch to the side of the face that sent Cox crashing awkwardly to the ground was little different from Barry […]
Perhaps the most cruel by-product of cycling’s ongoing battle with doping is the growing number of social media sceptics. These mainly anonymous ‘experts’ sit in their lounge rooms and pass judgement in 140 characters or less.

Unfortunately for Australian cycling fans, the prophetic words uttered by Cadel Evans on the eve of Stage 13 became reality when Team Sky’s Tasmanian import, Richie Porte, tumbled from leadership contention to the depths of the also-rans. Full of praise for the hard working Porte, Evans, who was briefly back on home soil to launch […]
It seems laughable now that earlier in the year Astana general manager Alexandre Vinokourov issued his team, including its marquee rider Vincenzo Nibali, with an official rebuke following poor early season form. The initial report, which appeared in the Gazzetta dello Sport, suggested the rebuke was aimed solely at Nibali, claiming the Sicilian’s results were […]
When he retires, Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin should be remembered in the same fashion that Gary Ablett senior – a freakishly skilled player with the ability to turn a game through his own brilliance. He is one of those rare players who has the x-factor. He is unpredictable, audaciously talented, supremely confident in his own ability […]
