'Yabba' at the SCG
Thanks to the generosity of businessman and philanthropist Basil Sellers, the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium are the home to the ten life-size bronze sculptures that form the Basil Sellers Sports Sculptures Project. The project commissioned NSW-based sculptors Terrance Plowright and Cathy Weiszmann to create the sculptures that capture the essence of ten of the finest Australian sportsmen to have competed at the grounds and so continues the Trusts rich links with Australian sports history. The sculptures reflect the four most influential sporting codes to have been played at the SCG and Sydney Sports Ground. The four cricket, two rugby union and two rugby league players have each played for NSW and Australia, the two AFL players have played for the Sydney Swans since their relocation to the SCG in 1982.
