What shape is your ball?

20 Nov 13

Which is better, cricket or footy? Join REISA this month for the Members Christmas Lunch, and listen to the ultimate battle of the balls.

On Friday, November 29 at the Adelaide Oval, guests will be invited to join REISA, South Australia's peak body for real estate careers, and a host of sports personalities for a three course lunch and plenty of entertainment. The event seeks to finally answer the age old question of whether cricket or footy is the better sport.

Current media commentator and former Port Adelaide Magpies footballer and coach Tim Giniver will host the lunch, which starts at 11:30 a.m. Members, non-members and groups are invited to join in the fun, making it the perfect opportunity to celebrate the silly season with work mates or clients.

Joining in on the raging debate will be Rob Chapman, CEO of St George Bank and chairman of the Adelaide Football Club among many other impressive roles. With his football ties it's not hard to see which way Rob will be leaning!

Representing fans of the baggy green and spinning ball, Wayne Phillips played both state and country cricket over the course of his 13-year first-class career. The left-handed batsman and wicketkeeper first became involved in full-time coaching in 1996 at Adelaide's Australian Cricket Academy. He's also occasionally a commentator at the Nine Network.

Rounding out the panel is Andrew Sinclair, a tax specialist who is also expert in fundraising and business law. He can talk the ear off anyone about CGT, GST and superannuation law, and frequently presents on taxation matters in South Australia and other states. Another of Andrew's passions, however, is cricket. He directs the Adelaide Oval SMA Ltd and is the current President of the South Australian Cricket Association, so you can bet he'll be batting for the gentleman's sport.
