DA’s Clue of the Round (12)

by David Astle (Don’t forget to visit http://davidastle.com/)

As winter nears,

And the alpine horde disappears,

What well-known brand

Seen across Snow Land

Comprises a racing star

(Not on ski, not in car)

Sitting side-by-side

A footy great glorified

By his Norm-Smith day?

Though wait – he runs the other way.

Solution to DA’s Clue of the Round (11): Once RICKY NIXON, the suspended ‘player’ of AFL negotiations, drops his Roman numerals (ICIX) and compass points (NN), the leftovers reveal YORK, one way to dismiss in cricket.
