Troubled Symonds back with longtime girlfriend Katie JohnsonMarch 2nd, 2009 - 1:34 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Mar 2 (ANI): Australias troubled all rounder Andrew Symonds is back with girlfriend Katie Johnson, who has given him stability, only a month after they split.
Johnson was a source of strength when Symonds was dropped from the Australian team, and the break-up was a blow to the all-rounder, who is in his second period of counselling and rehabilitation.
Symonds and Johnson parted ways in December around the same time that Roy was dropped from the Australian squad to tour South Africa, The Courier Mail reported.
It preceded his most recent setback, a radio segment during which he made a derogatory remark about New Zealand wicketkeeper Brendon McCullum, for which he was fined 4000 dollars after a Cricket Australia disciplinary hearing.
But sources tell that the dashing all rounder and Johnson are trying to patch things up as the Queensland Bulls eye off another Sheffield Shield victory. (ANI)
