When it comes to sex appeal in international sport, peak-90s Warnie probably isn’t the first person to come to mind.

Sorry, Shane.

But that doesn’t mean that he hasn’t passed down some bloody good genes.

Jackson Warne, the son of the cricket great has been sharing some spicy pictures on his Instagram, and they have gotten the attention of our newsreader, Maz.

With Maz in the studio this morning, Jodie saw an opportunity to chat Jackson and those photos.


“Look at Jackson! Jackson is doing some modelling and oh my giddy aunt, thoughts on Jackson?”

Maz chimed in that she doesn’t think that he got his genes from his dad and that “they look like mum, I think.”

For comparison, Soda drew our attention to how Shane was looking in the early 90s.

“Shane at 21, he had the bleached mullet, he was probably just a little on the chubby side, Warnie at 21.”


“To be fair to Warnie, he’s dropped about 14 kilos, but my goodness, Jackson,” Jodie responded.
