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!

But while Brown’s appetite for the footy matches Redfoo’s enthusiasm behind the microphone, that is where the comparison ends. You see, Brown in no novelty act. […]
When Jake Carlisle’s hamstring or debate about which guernsey Port Adelaide should wear garner more column inches than the redeployment of our troops to the Middle East, we know it must be AFL finals time. After all, what else matters in September? MORE AFL FINALS: >>Roar Expert tips and predictions >>Sydney Swans vs Fremantle Dockers […]
Essendon’s Dustin Fletcher must be allowed to play on next year. The serious finger injury that ended his 2014 season early has left the lanky defender stranded on 393 games and without the chance of playing a farewell match. After 22 years of service to a club that he literally grew up in, he has […]
Not so long ago the pro-cycling world was easy to quantify. Alberto Contador was the pre-eminent stage racer, Fabian Cancellara was numero uno when it came to races against the clock and Mark Cavendish was the undisputed sprint king. Hardly anyone would have argued otherwise. Fast forward to 2014 however, and things aren’t so easily […]
