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 the route for the Jayco-Herald Sun Tour is released each year I do two things. Firstly, I check to see if Australia’s oldest stage race is passing through my home town of Ballarat. Secondly, I see if it takes on the notorious hair-pinned climb of Arthur’s Seat. Sadly this time around the race bypasses […]
How many people really know what went on at Essendon through the supplements saga? Millions, apparently! Everyone has a view of course, a personal opinion that they are none too shy about venting. That is how it should be. But an awful lot of people also seem to know exactly what went on. I have […]
This year’s trio of Grand Tours provided us with plenty of highlights and drama, but one image in particular keeps coming back to me. Of the three races, the memory most prominent in my mind is of Vincenzo Nibali ploughing his way across the muddy cobbles on Stage 5 of the Tour. Nibali had already […]
