Sinderberry goes west

By 19 January 2013 4

The Roar have word that former Brumbies boss in the halcyon days Mark Sinderberry is going to head up the troubled Western Force super rugby franchise:

Sinderberry spent eight years at the Brumbies and six years at UK Premiership outfit Saracens, but more recently was a business consultant for a London-based cleaning company.

The 48-year-old takes over at the Force from Vern Reid, who announced in October he wouldn’t seek an extension to his contract.

Sinderberry has spent the past decade in the UK, but will return to Australia later this month before starting his role at the Force on March 5.

“Mark not only has a passion for rugby, but he has a history of building and growing the clubs and organisations with which he’s associated,” RugbyWA chairman Russel Perry said.

“During his tenure at the Brumbies he built them into the most successful Australian rugby province, including their 2001 Super 12 title.

“On joining Saracens he helped them fight off relegation to become regular Premiership and Cup semi-finalists.

“He also boasts very astute business acumen which is important to the organisation in an increasingly challenging global financial environment.”

We had a PE teacher at Kaleen High by that surname about 20 years ago. She was hot. Although it does conjure up images of ‘field berries’ AKA sheep turds. I guess a sinderberry is what you would get if you fed the sheep a good curry. Back to my bong now …

If only Ms Sinderberry taught kindy, and had been given the first name Cindy…

Life is never that good, though.

And why didn’t Kerry Packer have a son called Allan?
