In to bat for those in need

As the central character in a well-storied moment in international sport, Rick McCosker is synonymous with one of Test cricket’s truly memorable matches

After a Bob Willis bouncer broke his jaw in the first innings of the MCG Centenary Test in 1977, Rick bravely came out to bat in the second innings, ensuring Australia accrued enough runs to set up a victory. His heroics will forever be regarded as the epitome of Australian courage and bravery.
