Warwick Capper needs no introduction but here’s s little about him:

He was born in Melbourne in 1963, was once the most famous, most highly
paid, and flamboyant players in AFL footy. In 1982 he played for Oakleigh Districts winning the comp’s Best & Fairest, and was then recruited by the Swans for 1983 – their second year in Sydney. He was a full forward with
a spectacular mark. He was well known for his looks – long blond hair, tanned skin, tight
shorts, and his flamboyant & extravagant image at the club alongside Geoffrey Edelsten.
In 1987 he kicked 103 goals for the Sydney Swans and won “Mark of the Year”. After 5
years at the Swans he moved to the Brisbane Lions becoming the League’s highest paid
player. He was there for 3 years before returning to the Swans in 1991 for his last year at
senior level. Although a great footballer, that was underrated and overshadowed by the
antics and flamboyant behavior, which has continued to this day.
For almost three decades since he played, he has remained a massive character. Although
now back in Melbourne he spent most of that time on the Gold Coast, the location
suited to the walking publicity machine. When he appeared on “Open Mike” it was one
of the highest rating episodes.

This will be a most entertaining lunch.
