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!

Mick Malthouse, that crafty old warhorse, was the incumbent coach and he coached the same way that he played – with a bit of mongrel. Not the flashiest of [...]
This year’s Giro d’Italia is turning out to be a stellar race. From Cameron Wurf’s Vesuvius-like explosion from the stage one start line in Napoli, to John Degenkolb’s long distance chase-and-capture sprint on stage five, the Giro has been chock full of action and attacking riding. Throw in the odd surprise, some fickle weather and [...]
It’s becoming increasingly easy to pick winners in this year’s AFL. Most footy tipping competitions are brimming with participants who are regularly tipping seven or eight winners per round. A quick look at the ladder though shows the season isn’t all that lopsided. Only two teams remain undefeated (and that will be reduced to one [...]
With Cadel Evans performing above expectations and Sir Bradley Wiggins struggling early on, stage five of the 2013 Giro d’Italia could see further attacks. Join us from 10:30pm AEST. Stage five features with two small climbs coming late in the day but the most likely outcome, if the peloton gets its act together, is a [...]
