Trevor Manuel – a decent chap – took time out from buying fish & chips from a local fisheries in Cape Town to have his picture taken with me. First time I’d ever requested such a thing!

Was blessed and honoured.

I never really ever thought about writing, especially blogs, until I was given the opportunity by Neil Manthorp of MWP Media to become a freelance sports journalist.

This opportunity came via Twitter no doubt and I have not looked back.

I have launched many a version of a website to place all my articles, match reports and opinions on cricket, rugby and football. I have also included my interviews on Brian Moore’s SportsTalk as well as trying to include some classic videos to peak some nostalgic interest.

However, the movie ‘Marley and Me’ got me thinking about adding to this venture, writing about my family, giving me a forum to vent my opinions on daily life in South Africa and also, from time to time, to comment on what is happening in the world.

While some of the posts on this website are posted on www.supersport.com and other online publications, the majority are my own opinion and do not necessarily reflect those of MWP Media, SuperSport or any other media outlet.​
