Balcony Banter – Sam Thomson: Christmas Time at Long On

The MCG is a second home for Sam Thomson and his extended family. A member of the MCC since 1998, Sam received full membership in 2015. Originally from Horsham in Western Victoria, he is now a Physical Education teacher in Melbourne’s south-east. Among the many football and cricket matches, concerts and even wrestling events Sam has attended at the MCG, he counts the 2015 Cricket World Cup final as his favourite event.


In this recent Balcony Banter article, Sam explains his love for the ‘G’ and how the Boxing Day Test, in particular, fits into his family’s annual rituals.
