#222: Come On Aussie, Come On
Ole Rodney wasn’t afraid to get stuck into the opposition on the ground, hell, he wasn’t afraid to get stuck into his own team-mates and even the captain on the ground, famously known for inviting then Australian captain Graeme Yallop to pop round the back of the Adelaide Oval stands to sort out a few issues, and taking a swing at later captain Kim Hughes. Mind you at the time he wasn’t the only one who wanted to take a swing at Hughes, the line was long and illustrious, and included the likes of Dennis Lillee and Rodney Marsh.
What the Australian cricket team needs are clones of Dennis Lillee, Rodney Hogg and Carl Rackermann. And soon.
