Sports Author, Rugby Coach & Rugby's 'unofficial poet laureate'
One of Australia's most entertaining sports characters. Peter "Fab" Fenton is the famed author of books on boxing legend Les Darcy, the 1927 Waratahs and most recently jockey Wayne Harris.

"Sport the Way I Speak It" - Fenton's first book - is a collection of his poetry featuring sports and sporting legends dearest to his heart - Don Bradman, Phar Lap, rugby, cricket and boxing. As a journalist he is a regular contributor to Australia's Inside Rugby magazine.

Fenton is also a noted sound mixer for motion pictures and has been responsible for the sound tracks of many of Australia's best-known features over twenty years including Caddie, Picnic at Hanging Rock, My Brilliant Career, The Getting of Wisdom, Gallipoli, Phar Lap and Evil Angels.

Born in Boggabri, northern NSW, Fenton moved to Sydney with his family as a five year old. He was educated at Fairfield Primary School and Parramatta High. His rugby playing career included representation of Combined High Schools and later minor grade rugby for Parramatta. On retiring he took up coaching and guided Parramatta to their inaugural First Grade Premiership in 1977. He went on to coach Sydney from 1982 to 1985 and was the club coach for Eastwood for six years.

For the past four seasons he has been club coach of Penrith.

Fenton is a highly regarded solo speaker and because of his popularity with players from Wallabies down to club players, Fenton also works exceptionally well in the role of interviewer/compere.
