Mick Colliss is a gifted story teller with a very funny story to tell. He is the only Australian invited to speak at the prestigious MDRT (Million Dollar Round Table) event in Vancouver in 2016.
As a young kid, he always dreamed about playing for Australia. In anything. He tried a number of different sports – rugby league, rugby union, swimming, cricket, surf lifesaving – even lawn bowls, all without luck. But despite the disappointments and failures, he never, ever gave up.
Then, at the age of 42, all the hard work, dedication and perseverance paid off when he finally achieved his lifelong goal of wearing the green and gold – just not in the way you might think.

It’s written by Mick Colliss, a senior writer for a Perth ad agency, a regular on 6PR Perth (where he is known as ‘The Poem Guy’), sometime sports journo, and a fit sort of bloke. It’s all about his dream of representing Australia at an international level. When he realises he will never be selected for the Wallabies, he attempts various other sports and fails at them all. On a flight to Brisbane with his mate Skiffo, they stumble on the brilliant idea of starting a World Sudoku Championship
