"The Netherlands stuff never really got moving, it was something that was a possibility if I ever wanted to go down that line, but it was a bit of a long shot with it being a few generations back in my family," Dwarshuis said.

If that hadn't happened, he might not have been in the position to replicate those heroics against the fourth-best one-day outfit in the world - but it did. "I’ll be looking forward to that game and it’ll be a nice little test to see where I’m at. I’ve played two of them before so it’s almost kind of a checkpoint game to see where you’re at and what you need to work on, and how much more improvement 106

Craig Goodwin's time is now. After turning down an offer from Sydney FC in the off-season to return to Adelaide United, the lanky left-footer knows he has to dominate the A-League to cement himself as one of the country's best attacking players and realise his burning Socceroos ambitions.

5 October 2018 11:41 AM The Lowdown: Wanderers v Sydney FC

The Spanish marksman was the bright light in an otherwise dark season for the Wanderers last season. With no adjustment needed and a more stable pre-season, the former La Liga man is set to go up another gear. Already he's provided plenty of optimism with his early season form and will be looking to make Sydney FC another of his victims. The former Holland 118

28 September 2018 10:16 AM Drought doesn't stop Weyman from helping others get Pie in the Sky

The lush, green grass of Seiffert Oval is a far cry from Michael Weyman's drought-affected farm back in Moruya.
