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!

Are Hawthorn a genuine chance at winning three premierships in a row? We’ll know more after tonight’s game against West Coast in Perth, but history suggests that the mighty Hawks will struggle to achieve the prestigious hat trick.

Dangerous tackles in AFL need to go

4 Sep 2015

Courtenay Dempsey’s reckless tackle on Brett Deledio in last weekend’s Essendon versus Richmond game at the MCG was one of the scariest things I’ve seen on a football field, and it is one I hope to never see again.

Honesty a fading concept in AFL charade game
