About

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!

Some more unscathed than others in Essendon saga

Not only did his bright, shining star illuminate the Tour’s grand universe, it sparked our imaginations. While he wasn’t a pure sprinter, we could see him […]

Despite what they say, this Saturday will be very much all about Buddy

Despite what they say, this Saturday will be very much all about Buddy

25 Sep 2014

Jezza’s speccy, Leo Barry’s mark, Michael Long’s goal. They are moments of brilliance that we all know and love.

And the winner is... Sydney!

24 Sep 2014

The Sydney Swans are on the verge of winning their third premiership in 10 years. It has been a remarkable effort from a team which has refused to bottom out and slide down the ladder to rebuild. While many will argue that salary-cap concessions associated with the controversial cost of living allowance has given the […]

A sad farewell to a young fan

A sad farewell to a young fan

18 Sep 2014

“Connor has gone to heaven. He is in peace now.” It was the message we didn’t want to receive, although we knew it was coming. My son’s best mate had just died from an inoperable brain tumour. He was only eight years old. The news was relayed to me while I was on a break […]
