Cowboy doesn't let 'terrible' cricket ability stop him

MITCH'S XI player Harry Sullivan rates hitting his uncle Andrew Sullivan for six at Yangan as the highlight of his three seasons with Mitch's XI in the Australia Day Cricket Carnival which starts today.

He is the fifth in the Daily News Larrikin's Corner series to come up with cheeky players like Colts captain Shaun "Robbo” O'Leary.

Harry always wants to bat as a tailender and said the six off his uncle's bowling was the only one of his cricket career.

He recalls the day he went in to bat without pads or gloves.

"I was clean bowled first ball trying to flog it,” he said.

When first asked to be in Larrikin's Corner, he said he was a terrible cricketer.

"But I enjoy the social side of cricket,” he said.

"The Australia Day Cricket Carnival and the Warwick Rodeo are the two weekends I look forward to each year,” he said. At Saturday's races, the rugby league hooker won the Cowboys Footballer's Footrace.
