How does one find himself in the privileged position of working with the Kookaburras? In my case, in the days prior to a team camp, the incumbent doctor unfortunately required major surgery and did not recover adequately to continue team travel duties. Phone canvassing sifted through sport physicians available at short notice. Medical screening at the camp provided the opportunity to familiarize a doctor coming 'off the bench' with playing and management personnel and vice versa.
