20 November 2018 6:33 AM ACA loses its appeal

No, all was not well in Australian cricket at the time of Cape Town, but flawed culture cannot be allowed to act as an historical smokescreen. In that moment, experienced adult professional sportsmen conspired in or assented to a wrong. They knew it, as their ham-fisted effort to cover it up and so compound the offence showed. That wasn't culture, that was the blind 37

16 November 2018 12:49 AM Canberra mountain bikers trade Switzerland for Stromlo

11 November 2018 6:36 AM Erin Burns spearheads ACT Meteors victory

The ACT will have it all to play for against the NSW Breakers and South Australia in the final round of the regular season in February. Burns laughs she will be taking plenty of mental notes when she links up with a host of NSW players in the Sixers squad this week for the WBBL, but for now she just wants to savour a clean sweep on home turf. She has well and truly 17

11 November 2018 1:08 AM UC Firebirds win third straight ACT Gridiron Capital Bowl

It wasn’t until the second term the Firebirds were able to get on the board thanks to perennial scorer James Thornhill who added his 23rd touchdown of the season with a bombarding run up the middle. Man of the match Shaquille Garner added the second with a great catch and run for 60 yards to make it 14-0. The Centurions got on the board thanks to a wayward 18

10 November 2018 7:02 AM Poetic justice as Santa Ana Lane sinks rivals

It was indeed poetic justice for the owners and the stable that Santa Ana Lane got the firmer surface down the straight that he had been denied in the monsoonal conditions in Sydney when he went north to contest The Everest. Like many in that race he simply could not act on the heavy ground in which the VRC Sprint Classic favourite Redzel had excelled 23

He's widely regarded as one of Australia's best ever touch players, which will be recognised by his induction into the hall of fame on November 30. "Obviously it's an honour.

6 November 2018 2:16 AM Cumani breaks family duck at Flemington with One More Try

It's rare that a winning trainer gets interviewed by his sister, but that's the position Matt Cumani was in at Flemington early on Cup Day after his mare One More Try toughed it out in difficult conditions to justify her position at the head of the market. The Linda Meech-ridden four-year-old was too good for Dwayne Dunn and the $26 shot Seductive Miss, with the fancied 11
