  1. Oh, to be at the NFA for an Odd Friday Lunch! A Furphy to start with and then a bottle of Mitolo Jester with like-minded sports devotees all around. I’ll have to make do with a short trip to Sin-dney.

  2. Been a while since we’ve had one of these! Looking forward to the resumption of a great tradition.

  3. Daryl Schramm says

    Wish I could attend. Maybe we need one in Adelaide now that JTH is nearby. Just did a lookup on MK to confirm which years he coached Sturt, and came across his current advocacy and the reasons why. I had no idea. If not for this article I would not have known. Have a great lunch all.
