In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Win or lose, and they did plenty of both, Australian cricketers of the 1970s and ‘80s were hard, gritty, hairy, knockabout men. Into that team came Kim Hughes, a boy having fun. He wanted to be liked, wanted to make the people watching happy, and he could play shots other batsmen couldn’t draw a picture of.
Golden Boy is the unairbrushed history of an era we remember fondly but hardly knew. Through intimate conversations with the people who were there, Christian Ryan tells a story both enchanting and terrible. A schoolteacher’s son moves to the city and falls under the spell of a magical fellow named Frank. At every step up – first grade, first class, Test cricket – he must prove himself to men who have heard all about him before they meet him. And men can be mean. A favourite national pastime gets professionalised, and Packerised. But not everyone is invited along for the ride.
This is the story, too, of Dennis Lillee and Rod Marsh, of Greg and Ian Chappell – because to really know them, first you have to know about what happened to Kim Hughes.
