Michael Monaghan is a man of few words. As a result, he plays his cards very close to his chest, and other than
his embarrassing, but continuing support for the Otago Rugby team and the local Highlanders franchise, there's
not much that can really be said about him. He did once tell me that he's played against Mark Richardson, and he
certainly seems to have learned one or two things from him. Indoor cricket has forced Michael to play a few more
shots than usual, but he's still waiting for that all important first indoor six for the TAB. One day Michael, one day!
Michael has a real desire to play at the top tier in any sport he competes in; if you don't give 100%
and if the opposition aren't up to scratch, then Michael will be sure to let you know. We expect to see less
of Michael until we're either in the top division, competing in the nationals or if there's a chance of his
playing for the TAB leading to a call up for New Zealand. If any of this happens, Michael will be back in the
thick of it.
