The Andrew Symonds Fan Club
I’ve been an admirer of hard-hitting Andrew Symonds since his days at Kent County cricket club. Not much more entertaining that watching a Symonds batting onslaught when he’s on your side.
And it’s not just the ball he hits hard.
The innocent look on his face afterwards! What a legend.
And quite rightly, the authorities have decided no action will be taken against Symonds. Moreover, the streaker, Robert Ogilvie, has been fined AU$1,500 for “interfering with a sporting event”.
Following his court appearance, Ogilvie told journalists: “It was great actually, just like playing [Aussie Rules] football.”
Magistrates were told he had been drinking with his brother and friends when he decided to take off his clothes and run onto the outfield.
Ogilivie said he would not streak again but had no regrets about the incident, adding: “You only live once, don’t you?”
