The book that changed my life is:
If only I could: bat
I often wonder:: why batsmen continually hit Lloydy’s half-tracker cream-puffs to one of the 5 point fieldsmen and get out.

I like this club because: the people

A Gryphon I would like to be for a day is: Johnny Leroy, so I can drop to the 3’s and pick up a few cheap stats to skite about.
My Gryphons' highlight: I’m pretty happy with the A-grade bowling aggregate/average award in 2005/06 (something I never thought I could do), which also happened to be the year I captained the 1st XI (which was also something I never thought I’d do).
Other Cricket Career Highlights: Hard to go past the Hat Trick at Willowfest 2001 in Cup Grade, with me best mate Garc (who had filled in and never played before), taking the catch for the second wicket, which was a one-handed blinder at backward square leg – an amazing catch. Garc then went on to boot a coke bottle off the ground which landed in a bin 10m away without even touching the sides. He couldn’t do a thing wrong. Then we all got p1ssed again…
