Congratulations to Nathan Lyon for an outstanding 400th Test wicket over the weekend!

Nathan and his has manager, Peter Lovitt, Director of the Driver Avenue Group have been loyal supporters of CRBF and the advancement of sarcoma. Both Nathan and Peter went that extra mile on a personal level for Cooper after his diagnosis with osteosarcoma, bringing joy in an otherwise very dark period of his life.

Coincidentally, Nathan has once again gone out of his way to provide a money can’t buy opportunity, to host a 10 person bowling clinic, with proceeds raised going directly to sarcoma research and patient support in Australia.

This opportunity Nathan is providing forms just part of an incredible array of prizes on offer through the Afternoon Sports Podcast Auction, where 100% of funds raised will will contribute to the Sarcoma Navigation Telephone Support Line – a critical service which will provide a free of charge additional layer of clinical assistance for patients and families in Australia.

Nathan teams with league legend and all around round good guy Benji Marshall who is offering his company for 18 holes on the golf course.

A signed rugby jersey donated by the family of Wallabies Captain Michael Hooper is also available, along with a portrait of Latrell Mitchell, painted by Cooper Tarleton an osteosarcoma survivor and indigenous artist.

Finally, a signed 2019 Ashes cricket bat donated by Todd Greenberg at Cricket Australia and a 2021 signed NSW State of Origin jersey thanks to the NSW Blues.

This auction has now commenced and will close Christmas Eve, making these items the perfect Christmas gifts for someone special!

Enormous thanks to Craig Coleman and Blair Crawford, Tim Gilbert, Shane Lee, and all at the Afternoon Sport Podcast for their hard work in bringing this together in memory of Celso Munoz, who lost his life to osteosarcoma in October.
