Allan Border's 1989 Ashes tour was my first major assignment as a journalist. On the first day of the fifth Test at Trent Bridge, as Mark Taylor and Geoff Marsh were batting out the whole day on the way to an opening stand of 329, a colleague and I, with our deadlines passed, decided to have a well-earned pint. As we chatted in the Members' pavilion, I looked up at the row of old bats screwed onto the panelling above the bar. There, in the centre, was a dark brown one with a metal plaque under it which said it was Victor Trumper's bat from his legendary 1902 tour to England.
On that tour Trumper made 11 first-class centuries, one of them in a session in the Old Trafford Test. Admittedly the rest were made against the counties but, as ever with Trumper, it was the style of those innings that became part of the legend. Trumper entertained the English crowds and, as he always did, he won their hearts. He scored quickly and with great flair, prompting Wisden Cricketers' Almanack to describe him as the best batsman in the world.
I'd always been intrigued by the legend of the tall, dashing batsman who played with carefree grace. In the history books I read as a boy that he was described as Australia's greatest batsman before Don Bradman. But it was legend of the man himself that made him special. Bradman's legend was based on unbelievably phenomenal statistics. He was the run machine par excellence. Trumper was the artist, the genius who cared more for his team-mates and his fans than for his place in the record books. Trumper's status could easily be missed by a look through the statistics, but to read a biography was, and still is, to be entranced by a man as charming off the field as he was on it.
Trumper was generous to a fault, casual in his dress, kind to children, and greatly loved by opponents and team-mates. Truly, a romantic figure. Trumper ran a sports store in Sydney but was no great success as a businessman. He was not hard enough, giving free equipment or discounts to people short of funds. During his career, there was a stand at the Sydney Cricket Ground called the Penny Stand - because it cost a penny to get in. Legend has it that Trumper would always arrive early enough, and with pockets full of enough loose change, to walk over to the side of the ground opposite the dressing rooms to hand out pennies to poor boys hoping to get in. They came to expect Vic to give them a day at the famous ground to see their heroes in action.
Steve Waugh's love of his battered old baggy green cap was inspired by Trumper's attitude to his Australian skull cap. He cherished it and never wanted a new one. To him, the first was so precious that a replacement would not do. He was also celebrated for his casual approach to his playing clothes. Not for him the adage that if you can't be a cricketer you should at least look like one. After a day's play Trumper would roll up his cream trousers and drop them in his kitbag. The next morning he would simply unfurl them, put them on and head out for the day's play. He was obviously interested in substance rather than appearance, and I loved him for it.

One of the reasons Trumper's Test average ended below 40 was that he never sought easy runs. If the weather was fine and the pitch flat he usually threw his wicket away to give his team-mates a chance to make runs. But when the pitch was wet and treacherous, Trumper, as the senior batsman, would take full responsibility. This was not merely a whim. It is said that at New South Wales' practice sessions he would slip the groundsman a shilling or two to prepare one wet wicket at the far end of the table. After a net on a good pitch, he would go up to the end and practise on a sticky. I remember going to the same nets for a state squad practice session and looking up to the far end and wondering if that was the strip the great Trumper used for his wet-weather practice.
Years earlier I was a teenager playing lower grades in Sydney club cricket. One day we played at Redfern Oval, a summer dustbowl of a ground ravaged by a winter of rugby league. Before play, as we inspected the unwelcoming pitch, a team-mate pointed out to me a window on the second storey of a building across the road, behind the sightscreen. He said it was the window Trumper broke with a straight drive about 60 years before. It was a big, big hit. The window had been left broken for years, in tribute to the great batsman. It had been repaired by the time I saw it. I think the building is sill there but the state government has major plans to develop the area and who knows what fate awai
The life story of my boots
These have to be my most useful and favorite piece of equipment I have.
They have been everywhere I have been and have never been uncomfortable, even when they were brand new. They have managed to help get me out of the shit on every occaision I have managed to get myself in it!!! (which is probably a bit to often).
They have been in deserts, in the ocean, up on snowy mountain peaks, walking through rivers, bogs, through numerous caves, they have literally been ankle deep in shit, across endless paths, rocky and jagged. Grassy plains, they have been frozen solid, been in blistering heat, storms, floods, hail, snow, ice, droughts, soaked in oil, soaked in blood so that they squelched every footstep, pubs, clubs, bars, nightclubs, restaurants, shopping centres, hotels, boats, motorbikes, cars, trucks, they have even jumped out of an aeroplane at 8000 feet falling about 4000 feet in about 22 or so seconds (not nearly long enough except for the ground been in the way), they have sat around with family and friends, they have been to places I would rather forget, some I can't really say, and some I can't wait to get back to (so many places I can't wait to get back to). They have crept, crawled, climbed, stalked, walked, jogged, run for fun, run for their lives, kicked, squashed, they have trodden on, have been trodden on and trodden in so many different things, they have seen a good part of the world, and will still be seeing a lot more of it. They have been both loved and punished, they have seen me at my best, and at my worst some of my happiest moments, some of my greatest achievements, some of my lowest of lows, deep despair, grief and misery, excitement, boredom, frightened, relief, my quietest times, noise beyond belief, adrenaline, thrills, spills and so much more (but I know it's getting boring to read) and they have never ever let me down. This is my second pair of the same boots, the first pair had a similarly rugged life, they lasted over 10 years, with the original laces.
I have had no other piece of equipment that even come close to matching the life of these.
I guess what I am trying to say is that I really like my boots ;-)

On the demand side, exporters and strategic planners focusing on draw-benches for working metal bars, tubes, profiles, and wire in Australia face a number of questions. Which countries are supplying draw-benches for working metal bars, tubes, profiles, and wire to Australia? How important is Australia compared to others in terms of the entire global and regional market? How much do the imports of draw-benches for working metal bars, tubes, profiles, and wire vary from one country of origin to another in Australia? On the supply side, Australia also exports draw-benches for working metal bars, tubes, profiles, and wire. Which countries receive the most exports from Australia? How are these exports concentrated across buyers? What is the value of these exports and which countries are the largest buyers?
This report was created for strategic planners, international marketing executives and import/export managers who are concerned with the market for draw-benches for working metal bars, tubes, profiles, and wire in Australia. With the globalization of this market, managers can no longer be contented with a local view. Nor can managers be contented with out-of-date statistics which appear several years after the fact. I have developed a methodology, based on macroeconomic and trade models, to estimate the market for draw-benches for working metal bars, tubes, profiles, and wire for those countries serving Australia via exports, or supplying from Australia via imports. It does so for the current year based on a variety of key historical indicators and econometric models.
In what follows, Chapter 2 begins by summarizing where Australia fits into the world market for imported and exported draw-benches for working metal bars, tubes, profiles, and wire. The total level of imports and exports on a worldwide basis, and those for Australia in particular, is estimated using a model which aggregates across over 150 key country markets and projects these to the current year. From there, each country represents a percent of the world market. This market is served from a number of competitive countries of origin. Based on both demand- and supply-side dynamics, market shares by country of origin are then calculated across each country market destination. These shares lead to a volume of import and export values for each country and are aggregated to regional and world totals. In doing so, we are able to obtain maximum likelihood estimates of both the value of each market and the share that Australia is likely to receive this year. From these figures, rankings are calculated to allow managers to prioritize Australia compared to other major country markets. In this way, all the figures provided in this report are forecasts that can be combined with internal information sources for strategic planning purposes.
