MEET ROD GREY
WHO IS ROD GREY?
I played 1st grade cricket in for Norths Townsville from age 16 - 35yrs. Playing with and against some of the best Queensland State and Country players like Mitchell Johnson, Ben Edmondson, Blair Copelin, Craig Skau, Brian Hawke, Steven Farrell, Darren Frakes, Scott Connor, Ben Schuhmacher, Tom Franklin, Chris Adams, Steve Baker, David Todd and Glenn Seri to name a few. Once my son was old enough and started playing cricket, coaching his sides took a priority over playing. I fell in love with coaching and soon enough it was my son playing rep cricket and making more runs than I ever did at his age. Years later, his cricket is what brought us to Brisbane.
Together with my wife, we did some great signage projects in Queensland managing projects for Queensland Country Bank, Stadiums Queensland, North Queensland Cowboys and a ton of local businesses.
When my daughter was 3yrs, we discovered she had a tennis-ball sized tumour at the base of her brain...that was a life-changer. Thanks to the amazing doctors and medical professionals at the Townsville Hospital, it was removed, and we were extremely lucky it was not cancerous. There have been some bumps along the way but our daughter is going strong, living a normal life (and she loves cricket). This whole situation made us look at what we are doing with our life and where we want it to go. Cooper Cricket was only in it's infancy at that stage, but it reinforced to me what I'm truly passionate about.
Can't go past a great steak with red wine jus. I've also been trying to give up KFC for about...my whole life!
FIRST CRICKET BAT?
I really wanted a V100 from Sportscene but it was miles too big and heavy for me. After a game one day my Mum bought me a Gray Nicolls Dyna Drive! It was still way too big for me but I loved that bat.
My beautiful family.
I keep buying more tools that it will make things easier and better!
