  1. On availability for (lowly) cricket matches the then walloper of the West Coast town of Minnipa said it best in the pub one Friday night upon learning they were short for the following day’s fixture: “I’m a very handy cricketer. I can’t bat. I can’t bowl, and I can’t field. But I live right behind the oval.”

  2. Yep, count me in. We’ll see if we can get young Hammond in the creams too

  3. Cathryn McDonald says

    May non-players turn up for the drinks afterwards? Despite us not having an SA-related book to launch (mercifully… the Crows Almanac sounds like a terrible idea)
