About Rodney

Rodney Hogg was a cricket great and crowd favourite. He is now a well-respected and in-demand corporate and motivational speaker.

Rodney’s Test debut, the 1978/79 Ashes series, would see him take six wickets on debut and twice take ten wickets in a match. He quickly became a fan favourite with the crowd chanting “Hoggie, Hoggie, Hoggie” as he galloped in to bowl.

Rodney is a great story teller and motivational speaker who is a perfect addition to corporate functions, business events and sports days. Rodney has incredible stories from a fascinating and colourful period in Australian cricket. In Rodney’s words “I was there for the 500 to one, I was there for the 43 cans, I was there for the underarm, I was there for the aluminium bat…”
