Whatever happened to…….?

By Anna Key - 9 June 2009 22

I was just thinking of some Canberrans whose fame lasted slightly longer than Mal Meninga’s political career.  Wondering where they are now.  Some suggestions below, I’m sure there must be lots more

Jacqui Rees whose opposition to everything scored plenty of Canberra Times publicity and appearances on ABC tv ( a role since taken over by Val Jeffery).

Ben Vincent whose performance as a wrestler at the Sydney Olympics was so beautifully highlighted by Roy and HG on the Dream.

Paul Osborne who was able to launch a political career based on one offload in the 1994 grand final.

The guy who sang the Hyper-D rap sometime in the mid 90s.  (I need to trawl through some old videos to see if I have this gem committed to tape.)

Cosmo, the Canberra Cosmos mascot. 

Sonja Allitt, the ten capital newsreader (Greg Robson having found ongoing fame advertising luggage)

What’s Your opinion?

It was back in October last year.

lead-up story

…He doesn’t have a clue what to expect other than to return a better person. At the invitation of former Raiders hero Paul Osborne, Carney recently agreed to travel to the tiny central African nation…

report from Rwanda

The Canberra Raiders finally sacked him three months ago so he travelled to Africa this week to turn his life around.

Wasn’t it Paul Osborne who took Todd Carney off to Africa? Obviously that achieved its objectives… not!?

He did? Why???
