116. Season Finale, with Justin Langer and Aaron Finch
Play episode · 1 hr 4 min
We commence our farewell to the season in the only way we know how: by discussing safety, Fathers, MyCricket and Shane Warne. That’s all before Justin Langer is finally granted the privilege of joining our fair show, whereupon he muses on his early club cricket forays with Dennis Lillee, kicking over the bin at Headingley, TikTok with his daughters, players he thought were knobs but turned out okay, and the pandemic-inducing destruction of professional sport as we know it. All normal stuff.

Aaron Finch follows, and we wisely use that time to walk through WhatsApp politics, his axing at the hands of Fox Sports, and how to correctly ‘blow up’ post-dismissal when an Amazon camera is filming you, among other things.

AskTGC has questions about the definition of veteran status, dealing with an abhorrent client who does fielding drills at the gym, and a girlfriend’s face smelling like a cricket bat.

Finally, our live-streamed, (Virtual) End of Season Presentation to the nation is taking place Thursday April 9 at 8pm AEST. We are calling on anyone who’s played club cricket this year to nominate for:
- Best batting
- Best bowling
- Best overseas player
- Most frightening cricket dream
- Leading alpha
- Best rig
- Best rare unit
- Best circuit story (that is not defamatory, unsavoury or libellous)

There are 8 categories – submissions are open now – please send them either to gradecricketer@gmail.com, or our Facebook DMs.

Special guests include: Justin Langer, Mitch Starc and Alyssa Healy, Adam Zampa, George Bailey, Ed Cowan, Dan Christian, and many more to be announced.

To finish: This is the last TGC podcast episode for this season. A huge thanks to everybody who’s tuned in, supported, written in, attended a live show, sledged us, called out our names at the cricket, complimented Higgos’ rig etc. We are very grateful for your support and will continue to ply the cricket world with this material so long as its valued.
On that note, please know that The Grade Cricketer intends to keep casting through isolation. We will announce a new venture soon, especially because there’s a good chance our English audience may not see much cricket, if any, through the summer. Stay tuned.

Bound for Glory: Gary Ayres
At the start of 1991, the family club were coming off a season where they had failed to continue in the family tradition, eliminated by Melbourne the previous September to miss their first Grand Final since 1982 - unable to complete a three-peat. As odd as it sounds, their failure to make it to the big one in 1990 sent the club into a tailspin. They had been called too old and too slow in the past – maybe, just maybe, it was now true? When the West Coast Eagles, the new kids on the block, towelled them up at home early into the new campaign alarm bells sounded once more. But sure enough, Michael Tuck’s side got on a roll to finish in second spot on the ladder. Their next mission: a trip across the Nullarbor to take on Mick Malthouse’s hotshots to start one of the most anticipated finals series ever held. All the experience of the battled-hardened Hawks was on display through the month that matters most, overcoming West Coast at Subiaco then just reaching the finish line against Geelong a week later to earn a berth in the Grand Final at VFL Park. The Eagles were now on their territory for the decider. Gary Ayres knows more than most about saving the best for last Saturday in September, twice winning the Norm Smith Medal as best afield in the 1986 and 1988 Grand Finals. By 1991, he was the vice-captain at Glenferrie, hunting his fifth premiership. The man they called Conan joins The Greatest Season That Was to take us into the inner sanctum of one of the most decorated and celebrated football team ever assembled.
