Place of Birth
Medical Sales, Device Technologies Australia
Nickname and why?
Crossy- very boring I know. Has been elaborated to Better Crossy but not sure if its sticking lol
Years at Waratahs?
Our club tag line is “Bleed Blue”. What does Bleed Blue mean to you?
I see bleed blue as the culture of the club. I would say it means putting the club first and representing the badge to the best of your ability on and off the field.
Who is the current Manly Cricketer that you enjoy playing cricket with the most and why?
Probably AB. He is incredibly talented and I love the way he approaches the game and how attacking he is with bat and ball.
Favourite band or musician?
If you could invite any 3 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would it be?
Jim Carey, Justin Beiber and Michael Jordan
Which Waratah team mate is the classiest dresser?
I do think Tom Kaye always looks pretty good, he loves a good jacket and I believe he always looks great. This could be why he does so well with the ladies.
If the Manly Cricket playing group was Big Brother, who would you vote off first?
Probably Tom Kaye. He would be getting withdrawals from stalking random girls on Instagram. Doing tom a favour.
Who do you think is in-line for a huge season this year?
Matt Alexander. He is fit and healthy and with Mickey Edwards back Mattoes will be the best first change bowler in the comp.
What are your team goals for 2017/18?
To win a few trophies. We have an amazing group of players this year. I believe if we play hard cricket we could have a very special year.
What puts a big smile on your face?
Finally completing things after being asked for a month to complete them. Sometimes I can be a little lazy, so not being lazy makes me feel proud.
If James Sutherland gave you the top for 1 day, what would you change about cricket in Australia.
I would bring back a 2nd X1 competition.
If you had an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world for a week, where would you go?
I would spend a week on the ski slopes in Whistler.
If you could go back in time and give anyone a piece of advice, who would it be and why?
I would probably tell my younger self and father that the art of wicket keeping will die so hit more balls.
If you could walk out to bat to any song blaring in the background, what would it be and why?
Probably collide by Howie Day. Seems to put me in a good mood and when I’m in a good mood I score more runs 🙂
What are you currently saving up to buy?
I want a red MG convertible for a weekend getaway car.
What is your place of solace?
Probably the slip cordon. I am the most relaxed when we field and never really want to be anywhere else and I get a break from life for a few hours 🙂
