Almanac Flashback – ‘Swish’ Schwerdt’s review of Michael Sexton’s ‘Chappelli’s Last Stand’


We’ve had a bit of a run on the Sheffield Shield as well as yesterday’s review of Michael Sexton’s recent release Border’s Battlers. So, to maintain the cricket theme, let’s go back a year or two and revisit ‘Swish’ Schwerdt’s review of Michael’s previous offering, Chappelli’s Last Stand, an account of South Australia’s mid-70s, epic journey from Shield wooden spooners to Shield Champions in just one season under the leadership of the iconic Ian Chappell.

    And bravo, Swish for a cracking review.
