Melburnians are fond of saying they live in the sporting capital of Australia, if not the world.
I doubt there’s any statistical analysis behind this claim, but there’s certainly a hell-of-a-lot going on at pretty much all times of the year.
Since relocating from Canberra in mid 2012 I’ve been fortunate enough to cover a fair amount of elite sport for The Herald Sun.
I’ve also taken on the Melbourne Rebels Super Rugby franchise as a freelance client and I’m excited about what I can deliver for them throughout the remainder of the season.
I never reached any great heights throughout a 15-year playing career on the rugby field, but I look forward to making up for it by performing to a higher standard on the sideline.
Feel free to heckle if you see me from the stands at AAMI Park – I know some of you already have.
