South Sydney Rabbitohs star Michael Crocker agreed to join Hull FC in 2009 before
he wasn’t provided with a UK visa and signed instead for South Sydney from the
Melbourne Storm

Crocker played in the victorious Melbourne Storm side in the 2007 NRL grand final
(scoring a try) against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles helping the Melbourne team
coached by Craig Bellamy to the NRL title.

The Welsh footballer who shares the same name as the Melbourne Storm coach
Craig Bellamy is now back at Liverpool where he was a runner up in the 2006-
2007 Champions League, helping the Anfield club on their way to the final with the
equaliser against Barcelona in their 2-1 first leg win in their first knockout round tie
after Brazil born Portugese international Deco had given Barcelona the lead at the
Nou Camp

Like Deco, another Portugese sports star born outside of Portugal is Francis Obikwelu
who won the silver medal in the men’s 100m at the 2004 Olympics in Athens

Another silver medal hero from the 2004 Olympics in Athens was Amir Khan who
won the silver medal in the lightweight division in the boxing event

Haroon Khan is the brother of Amir and has become a successful amateur boxer
himself, winning bronze for Pakistan in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi
