VIDEO: Sharpie Hangs Up the Boots

This sure brought a lump to the throat (although I’m not sure about the soundtrack choice for the first bit).

    Oh so they do know the words – even Dingo sings it!

    Sharpie was a favourite of mine early on (because I could always pick him with his blue headgear). Since then he’s gone from strength to strength, and leaves on a high. He’ll be missed.

    nice of the construction worker from the village people to help Sharpie out on the song.

      Bastard! You owe me a coffee and some stain remover. ;)

  • Nipper

    A legend who stepped up when the Wallabies needed him the most.

    Full respect Sharpie. Thank you.

    Sharpe is a true legend of the game. Great captain and a great player. I dont think anything demonstrates Aussie ticker like Sharpie putting of his retirment to captain his country one last time. Real respect for him and seems a true gentleman as well-aussie rugby is now poorer.
