My most memorable moments watching him:
1. Century in the centenary test
2. Calling back Randall in the same test after he was given out but wasn't sure if he caught it cleanly so called him back - Randall goes on to make 174
3. Going "nah, mate" shaking his head in disbelief before the infamous underarm by Trevor Chappell.

Shared a few rounds and several glasses of wine with him at golf, he was very competitive, great company and very funny. Very sad to see him go, my condolences to Ros and the family. :(

Agree, especially number 3.

“Caught Marsh, bowled Lillee!” A classic Aussie cricket phrase.

I'm in iso so I had to watch it online, but it looked like they pretty much filled the Magarey Room.
