Warnie suffered a massive heart attack and passed last week. My favourite cricketer of all time. An Aussie larrikin and Top Man. He was a visitor to Portland Road whenever he was in New Zealand. We played tennis together – and of course cricket in our net at Portland Rd. (Eldest son Ben claimed his scalp and bowled him out once!!) He could smash a beer or two and was full of mischief, fun and sunshine.
Can remember a couple of big nights in Adelaide and Sydney too – (vaguely!!).
The skies are greyer without him.
