Two FFA directors will be part of the 'New Leagues Working Group' that will put forward a plan by the end of March to spin off the A-League from federation control.

"It wasn't that difficult a decision, but what I would be missing out on is another opportunity to potentially win a golf tournament on the PGA Tour which would cement everything, or do really well and move yourself a long way up there," Davis said of his decision to return home.

4 November 2018 6:33 AM Jordan Thompson denies rising star at Canberra International

"It was very tough, I thought I was really good in first set but knew he'd pick up the pace in the second and he definitely made it a battle," Thompson said. "There's not many 18-year-olds in the world as good as him. He's a much better player than what he's ranked, he's still very young so I'm sure we’ll see him rise through rankings."
