Mark Fox England WILDCARD ENTRANT. 

 

He hasn't had the same competitive interest or success as the other competitors but is internationally known and a well respected Shearer in the UK and one of the countries biggest
shearing contractors in the UK. He is an ideal Wildcard; in his career he has shorn in the US, Falkland Islands, Norway, Wales and basically all over the world. He is a master
Shearer and will keep the other legends honest.
