Rodney Hogg’s 1979 World Cup campaign lasted just 11 very expensive overs. A little Canadian by the name of Sealy smashed him for 16 off his first and 10 off his second before captain Kim Hughes told Rod to go to fine leg and stay there.
Forty years after one of the most embarrassing moments of his maverick career, Hoggie wants to tell the REAL story of what happened… why Australia bombed out before the semi’s… if he ever did throw a punch at captain Kim… and many other humorous asides in-between.
Rebellious Rod is one of Australian cricket’s great entertainers and he has accepted our very cordial invitation to be our World Cup Guest of Honour at the Kelvin Club for Friday lunch on June 21.
We are back at our favourite city base, 12 noon for a 12.20 p.m. start. Once again we are running this event in conjunction with Taverners Victoria, who like us do so much for the disadvantaged.
Bookings and Payments ($75 for ACS & Taverners Members & $85 for Guests) can be made as follows:
