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!

When Neale Daniher’s knee crumpled beneath him in the next to last game of the 1981 VFL season, the football world was robbed of one of its most promising rising stars. The then 20-year-old had been one of the driving forces behind a 15-game winning streak that had the Bombers – who had started the […]

The journey begins for Dae Szydlik

Winning stages better than winning the green jersey

9 Aug 2014

If you had the choice of riding away from the Tour de France with either the green jersey on your back or a swag of stage wins under your belt, which would you choose? Would you prefer to be Marcel Kittel or Peter Sagan? Kittel visited the top step of the podium on four occasions […]

The game is as magical as ever!

The game is as magical as ever!

7 Aug 2014

The alarm sounds at 6:15am. The boy drags himself out of bed. It is cold but he doesn’t care. His footy jumper is carefully laid out on the end of his bed. He admires it for a moment, a brightly coloured maroon and gold design that is pleasing to his eye. He especially likes the […]
