Rod Marsh

Cricket in the 70s was great When the future was up to a World Series fate And Rod Marsh was one of Kerry Packer’s men To get better paid was their demand When the Chappells, Doug Walters, Lenny Pascoe and friends Returned to cricket properly with fulfilled demands We saw Thommo and Lillee bowling down With Rod Marsh crouching where the cherry was bound In the record books there are 343 dismissals Athletic catches to the bowlers missiles The greatest number were catches made With the crowd roaring and farewells to batsmen were bade The record books show bowled Lillee caught Marsh As the usual dismissal in an attack quite harsh But now he is one for the ages in our memories grand Forever in his baggy green with a beer in hand. © Paul Warren Poetry
