I never made any of the school teams (not that skilled!), but I still love getting out and having a whack. We spend every second Christmas with family in Brisbane--fourteen of us gathering for the festive season. That's usually enough for a fielding team, two batsmen, and someone to carry the drinks. Although now my brother, myself and my cousin are married, that's three girls to add--and my wife can catch.
Does your DS have the picture of himself in the Cup on his wall?
Unfortunately, no. And it was David Campese that put him in the cup! I really wished I'd gone and bought a throw-away camera to take photos, but I didn't think about it at the time. Oh well, he knows about it and still has the signed jersey. He's gotten the current jersey out to wear to watch the Wallabies/France game in the morning. I shall have a sleep-in instead.
