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!

Thank God for Jamie Elliot’s mark last Saturday night.

Last year everybody’s favourite cyclist, Fabian Cancellara, outpointed […]
I have a confession to make. I don’t like riding over bumpy roads. Yes, I know I am breaching The Rules, in particular rule five which states in no uncertain terms that one should harden up, but to me, rough roads are for contraptions which sport fat tyres and suspension forks. Instead I like to […]
Jason Dunstall, Tony Lockett, Gary Ablett Senior, Tony Modra and Stephen Kernahan are now names from another era, goalkicking giants who have long since hung up their boots. It is hard to believe, but a whole generation of football fans have now grown up without having ever seen Dunstall hit the ball on a lead, […]
James Hird will be coaching Essendon in 2015 and 2016. To the disappointment of all the moral crusaders, there will be no bloodletting today. The original plan stands. Mark Thompson will be the Bombers’ caretaker coach until Hird resumes at the completion of his ban. Like it or not, that is how it is. The […]
