Jack Fingleton is one of many Australian cricketers whose career was played out in the shadow of Don Bradman. The outspoken, sometimes caustic Fingleton was renowned for his clashes with Bradman, which continued long after both had put down their bats. Greg Growden, the author of Jack Fingleton: The Man Who Stood Up To Bradman (Allen & Unwin 2008) and a Sydney Morning Herald sports writer is very much an authority on the character and history of Jack Fingleton. On Tuesday 17 March 2009, Greg Growden  addressed The Sydney Institute and shed light on much of the tension between Fingleton and the Don.
