CATCH UP | The Curious Cans of Bareul Jeong

Patriots, pilgrims, punters and sandpaper buffs – what a week it’s been in sport…. unless you’re Winx’s brother Wanx, or Bareul Jeong as he’s more commonly known.

AFL in China is a rip-roaring success, just ask the fans who were taken to the wrong venue. Die-hard Chinese Suns fans, truth be told.

Roy, ever the lyricist, turns his dab hand to the national anthem and re-writes the opening stanza. It’s a masterpiece of inclusion and unity,

Oh, and meet Cyril Plumb AO, Just Short of a Length’s freshly minted soundproof booth specialist.
