NSW lead senate candidate Simon McCaffrey and two of his sons Lachie and Angus made an appearance in the Daily Telegraph today. Lachie, 23, who scored for his Western Force side against the British and Irish Lions in June, is running in Liberal MP John Alexander’s seat of Bennelong while Angus is taking on Liberal MP and shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey in his seat of North Sydney.
“It is a dog-eat-dog sort of world. I think it might be tougher than playing the Lions – they are both pretty hard battles,” Lachie, an economics student from Hunters Hill, said.
An issue close to his heart is government-funded insurance of amateur sporting clubs.
“I’ve got a passion for giving all individuals the freedom of being able to play whatever sport they want. Governments are complaining about childhood obesity but are doing nothing to stop community sporting clubs from having to close down due to legal liabilities and costs,” he said.
