I remember the furore - and ridicule - over Graeme's perm. Hard to believe it's nearly three decades ago. A few years ago while working as a journalist I rang Graeme for a comment on an unrelated story, but wisely decided against asking him about "that hairstyle."

Not long after he turned up at Lancaster Park to do comments on a rugby match and walked out in front of the infamous No 5 stand with Kieth Quinn to do a 'stand up' There wasn't a lot of respect shown by the Canty students on the bank to a 'permed' former All Black' the commotion ruined the whole live cross with bottles and jeering. Thorny would do anything for publicity..then and now.
