Australia cricket legend Richie Benaud passed away overnight, aged 84.

One of the great personalities of world cricket, Richie Benaud forged his reputation first as a player, later as Australian Test captain and finally as a highly-respected analyst and commentator on the game.

The area you grew up in was known as south penrith....basically south of jamison road..

 

Richies family were mainly centered in emu plains, but there were also quite a few in penrith itself
