Bio for Smith, Paul

Player
Player # 74
Debuted: MPSECA 0203 - Grade 6, Rd 02 vs Clovelly RSL at Moore Park 15
Bio last updated: 06 Nov 2002

A real live wire who has already managed to capture 10 wickets by the simple expedient of actually putting it on the pitch and letting batsmen screw up big time.






Known As: Smithy (in England) Smitho (in Aussie Land), Maysie (cheers Cam I really need reminders of the various England collapses over the years!) & Pommie Paul ... alright Small Pommie Paul!
Known For: I'd rather not say, I had hoped emigrating around the world would leave the rumours behind me!
Bats: Middle to late order, left handed.
Bowls: Right arm off spin
Fields: Point, mid-off - jack-of-all-trades really.
Drink: Currently gobsmacked at the crazy Australian idea of cold beer! VB is going down quite nicely though
Fave movie: Back To The Future Trilogy ... what do you mean it's the same plot in all three films???
Last thing you read: Aussie lingo for beginners
Memorable moment: Being on a hat-trick and getting hit for two consecutive sixes
Adolescent Pin-up girl: Hmmm so many to choose from! Kylie (of course) and Kelly Le Brock in Woman in Red was always one for the freeze-frame aficionados!
Quotable Quote: "Its bloody hot today." "You'll be laughing on the other side of your faces after the Ashes!"
Season's Goal: To gain the skill and nerve to try a few leg spinners in a match and be able to call myself an all-rounder. We're still looking for the next Botham you know
What you hate most: Thinking I've bowled a good delivery only to see it hoiked cross batted onto the neighbouring pitches.
