The Canberra Raiders 1989 rugby league grand final win emotionally scarred Luke Robert, a studiously solid -built kindergarten kid from the South West Slopes of NSW. His beloved Balmain Tigers were beaten in extra time - on the buzzer no less. After becoming a Raiders fan in 1990 - an obsession with sports began.
Luke has a soft spot for sports’ ability to continually impact societal change and marvels at the absurdity of American sports.
A Sports Media graduate from the University of Canberra, Luke contributes to The Canberra Times entertainment supplement ‘FLY’, where he covers bands who detour off the Hume. He has covered the ACT Brumbies for Sportal and currently maintains a blog dedicated to Sports|Culture http://www.litresofink.blogspot.com.
Luke plays in the Canberra punk-rock band Hoodlum Shouts and is a recent self-confessed twitter-addict.
