Richard Reid. Think he wore prescription sunnies while opening (poorly) at the 92 World Cup?

Edit: it was the year before against england and Australia in the World Series Cup

I don't remember many who wore glasses...

Big Clive of course... and Dirk Wellham... Sadly I don't remember Richard Reid.

Matthew Nicholson.



Played for NSW and WA, got one test cap back in 1998.

He was quick but he was an arrogant f***head, ran into him once in a pub in Perth and I said "Hey Nicho" and he ignored me.

Then I said "You got one test cap you dickhead, you're not Glenn McGrath" and he ignored me again.
Wait, who are we saying is the dickhead in this story?

IProbably me in hindsight, I didn't actually say that second line to him about only having one test cap though, I just thought it.
As if it was you that had the guts and determination to play for Australia!

Richard Stobo

Played a handful of Shield matches for NSW in the late 80s/early 90s as a medium-fast bowler.
Back then Nine Adelaide used to televise matches.
Memorable for Ashley Mallett's critical commentary saying something like "surely they [NSW] could have found someone better than this bloke".

His son Charlie has played a couple of games for NSW recently.
