Place of Birth
Durban, South Africa
Nickname and why?
Greeny – like all nicknames it was either the ‘y’ or the ‘o’ to go at the end of my last name and from the first day of school in Australia I was given the ‘y’.
Years at Waratahs?
Our club tag line is “Bleed Blue”. What does Bleed Blue mean to you?
Bleed Blue to me means to put yourself on the line for your team mates and club mates, whether on the field or off it, we are all in it together as one big collective community in Manly and to bleed blue is to look out for one another and stick up for what we each believe in.
Who is the current Manly Cricketer that you enjoy playing cricket with the most and why?
Most looking forward to playing with Cameron ‘Nappa’ Merchant, easily one of the rarest blokes I know so entertainment value is bound to be high but also typifies the ‘Bleed Blue’ slogan. Always looking out for the people around them and is great at getting the best out of them and making everyone feel valued.
Favourite band or musician?
Black Eyed Peas – been that way since I was 11
If you could invite any 3 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would it be?
Nelson Mandela, Roger Federer and Johnny Wilkinson
What is your earliest memory?
Walking to primary school in South Africa in bare feet (never wore shoes to school) and the ground being scorching hot so having to walk on the white lines.
Which Waratah team mate is the classiest dresser?
Adam Crosthwaite – Melbourne fashion demands taught him well.
If the Manly Cricket playing group was Big Brother, who would you vote off first?
I would break the rules and keep the boys together. Be more entertaining that way!
Who do you think is in-line for a huge season this year?
What are your team goals for 2017/18?

What puts a big smile on your face?
Family, Sunshine, Good Music
If James Sutherland gave you the top for 1 day, what would you change about cricket in Australia.
I would consult the best of the best in AFL and NRL and look to adopt similar structures and set ups through cricket. Cricket is being doing well through and being held up by the Big Bash but it is very much so entrenched in the stone age from an administration side of things. No better time like the present for making change to benefit our great game.
If you had an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world for a week, where would you go?
If you could go back in time and give anyone a piece of advice, who would it be and why?
Me, would go back and say there is no need to doubt yourself. Continue to trust that the hard work will pay off and rewards will follow. Enjoy the challenges that you are faced with and have fun along the way.
If you could walk out to bat to any song blaring in the background, what would it be and why?
Impi – Juluka/Johnny Clegg – is a childhood song that I have fond memories of
