The Kookaburras midfielder scored the Australian’s third in a 4-1 win against Ireland at the Hockey World League semi-finals in Belgium, before making a hand ­gesture near his head.

At one stage in his career after hitting the net Orchard had been renowned for doing the Ram, a shout out to his former Maitland club by making a set of horns with his fingers, the back of his hand and his forehead.

More recently this had been put in the kit bag and it remains that way, with the most recent shenanigans nothing to do with the animal symbol but rather the alphabet.

Orchard made the letter W on his melon using both hands as a birthday message back home for his younger brother Josh, representing the affectionate nickname Weenis.

This was all covered last week by Julia Zamiro on her program Home Delivery with Fearnley going down memory lane to where it all started in the country NSW town of Carcoar.

The inspiring episode is well worth a captain cook online at ABC iView.

Bringing people togetherAnd finally, forget State of Origin, the NRL or even the Maitland Pickers – Saturday’s international clash was one for the ages.

Despite the political situation between the two countries being at boiling point – Russia and Ukraine meet on neutral territory in Belgrade.

Regardless of the result, it proves that sport really can bring people together, even through the threat of war.

Numbers Game: 3000 – the amount of money raised for the Hunter Medical Research Institute brain cancer unit on Friday at the third instalment of the Bushrangers Bar and Brassiere Let’s Do Lunch series, which featured two-time Newcastle Knights premiership ­winner Mark Hughes as guest speaker.
