25 August 2018 1:04 PM Ainslie books grand final ticket as battered Belconnen Magpies regroup

"I was really happy with our first half, we really fought it out well. The game was there to be won in the third quarter," Bennett said. "Whether Ainslie lifted or we weren't able to sustain it ... we just didn't get the job done in the third quarter and that really hurt us for the rest of the game.

25 August 2018 8:02 AM Canberra Demons star Mitch Maguire in the running for NEAFL MVP

The Canberra midfielder has more teammates than people in his hometown and he says a premiership medal would feel much better around his neck than the league's most prized individual honour.

6 April 2018 6:57 AM Aivi Luik back from wilderness for Matildas Asian Cup campaign

Luik is over her quad complaint and her debilitating hamstring injuries. This couldn’t have come at a better time given the Asian Cup is also the qualifying tournament for the 2019 World Cup in France.
