Tragedy on the field sparks a discussion about overcoming fear and going alone as the highest form of courage.
Show Notes

On November 25th 2014, Australian cricketer Phil Hughes was hit in the head by a short ball in a Sheffield Shield game, rushed to hospital and died. This week we review the tragic event and how it made us feel and reflect on our own time on the field. Cricket requires rare physical courage - in no other sport is a ball aimed at the head a legal part of the game. But are there higher forms of courage than the physical? Is courage the absence of fear or the overcoming of fear? As always the boys explore some of the deeper questions and finish up on a philosophical note.
