A wonderful after dinner speaker with a quick wit, talking sport is in Mick McGuane's veins.
Whether it's the AFL, cricket, tennis, soccer, boxing...or all three racing codes he has stories to tell that will resonate with just about any audience.
A two-time winner of the Copeland trophy, an All-Australian and state representative and winner of the goal of the year in 1994; 155 game veteran Mick McGuane’s most memorable game was in the 1990 Grand Final that saw the team break a 32-year premiership drought.
Regarded by Leigh Matthews and David Parkin as having one of the most astute brains in AFL football, he coached Burnie and Gisborne with great success, joined Richmond in a coaching capacity before being appointed assistant coach at the Saints in 2006, electing to leave when Grant Thomas was dumped as senior coach.
He also turned around the fortunes of Keilor and Balwyn football clubs. No stranger to media, Mick has commentated with the Seven Network and analysed footy in various print publications and on the radio. Mick’s sporting knowledge extends far beyond football; he’s a sporting fanatic with a great interest in all sports, particularly racing and cricket.
Currently heard on RSN Racing and Sport in the breakfast shift, he brings a relaxed easy style to any event.
Whether it’s as a speaker, host, MC or interviewer, he enthrals and entertains his audiences with anecdotes and insights from his playing and coaching career and his broad knowledge of sports in general.
