Profile

An opening batsman for Western Australia - he was a member of Sheffield Shield winning teams in 1972-73, 1976-77, 1977-78 - who came close to a Test cap during the era of World Series Cricket, he played hockey 227 times for Australia, winning a silver medal at the 1976 Montreal Olympics. He was selected for five Olympics, although the boycott of the 1980 Games meant he only appeared in four, captaining the side in 1984. He subsequently coached the women's side to two more gold medals. A doctor by profession, he served for a decade as an MP and latterly was New Zealand Cricket's high performance manager.
