Subject: RE: Update

Hi Bernard, it is very good to hear from you, and my apologies for not coming back to you much sooner. I have been away from my computer for a few days.
I am coming off the busiest year of my working life — I was a consultant to the National Rugby League and Australian Rugby league as the game celebrated its centenary, and also worked on the game’s centenary history book and had books published by the cricketers Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer, rugby union’s George Gregan and the great rugby league coach Wayne Bennett. I’m not really sure how I fitted it all in, but we survived. This year (taking a bit of Bernard Stewart’s advice), I’ve scaled back a little, but I am working on SBS’s Ashes cricket coverage, as well as working with Ricky Ponting on another book (this one on this year’s Ashes series in England) and preparing a history of Australian cricket (a longer-term project).
Best wishes
Geoff A.
