The Fat Cat smacks a magnificent ton vs those whinging Poms.

  1. Thanks Rob. One of the supposed complaints about Ritchie was his weight (hence the nickname “Fat Cat”) which may or may not have curtailed his international career especially under the Simpson regime. But he really wasn’t that much bigger than Boonie or Merv. A year and a half later, after the failed 86-87 season he wasn’t seen again internationally. It is rumoured that when he and Zoehrer found out that Simpson was to be coach one turned to the other and said “I’m gone!”. The other said “I’m gone too!”. Within 12 months of Simmo’s leadership, both were dropped.
