Cass “The Lumberjack” Selwood
A self-described ladies man – he is the true “Cass-anova” of the Uni Whites.
After cutting his teeth as a junior at Lismore Thistles and Lennox Head Sharks – Cass was eventually lured to the glamour club with promises of big match payments, fast cars and fast women. Unfortunately – these were promises that would later prove to be false.
Now the lone Everton fan amongst the Whites – Cass, for some reason, lists his football hero as none other than Manchester United talisman – Ryan Giggs. It’s not hard to see why. With the exception of blistering pace, a decent left foot & Ryan’s penchant for backgammon – the resemblance is uncanny. Both Ryan & Cass are 31 years old.
“Mama” Cass has brought to the team his wealth of experience – and his extensive knowledge of fine wines. And just like a fine wine – Cass only expects to get better with age.
Famous Quote: “I’m open to bribery, a carton of pale and I’ll be yours for life.” – Cass during his wedding vows
(Note – Cass’ “carton of pale” comment may have been quoted out of context & may not have actually occurred during his nuptials).

Hanged by the neck until ye be dead…Oh, not that kind of sentence. Um, Casanova, world’s greatest lover, need I say more?
