Probably not a household name, but certainly known amongst anyone who watched Ashes test matches in the 1970s. He was first change bowler to Lillee and Thompson and was certainly not much of a reprieve to batsmen having survived the opening pair's onslaught.
Eating's a serious business. Don't bollocks around wagging your tail.

Not been up with the news of late, so missed this.

Yes, very unique bowling action and a shed load of swing to go with it too.
Remember him very well [from the sofa] from that era.
