14 June 2018 10:03 AM Handling expectation the next challenge for Swifts, says coach

Sunday's clash against the Lightning is part of a run of six games out of seven being played by the Swifts in the Harbour City in the middle stretch of their Super Netball schedule, prior to the last three rounds of competition, which are all away from home. A trip to Brisbane to take on the Queensland Firebirds next week precedes a run of three straight 11

6 June 2018 6:43 AM Jeff Horn's camp fire back at 'crap' headbutt barbs

But Daniels says the notion Horn leads with his head to damage rivals is preposterous - especially given the Australia's propensity to being split open. "Despite all the crap you see on social media, Jeff doesn’t lead with his head," Daniels said. "Jeff doesn’t want head clashes. If you have a propensity to potentially get some cuts, you’re not wanting 8

5 June 2018 9:18 AM Canberra Cavalry grouped in new Australian Baseball League division

The Canberra Calvary will join a newly formed northeast division alongside the Brisbane Bandits, Sydney Blue Sox and a New Zealand team as part of an Australian Baseball League rejig. The ABL has added an international flavour to the 2018-19 season, with the Cavalry to play against a team from New Zealand and one from Korea when the competition re-launches 5

5 June 2018 7:32 AM Proud Queenslander Jeff Horn will 'never give up'

Horn doesn't think that will matter one bit. His fearless attitude saw him topple Manny Pacquiao and he will tap into that same mentality against the imposing Crawford. "There’s something about Queenslanders, there’s just that never give up attitude and I draw off that every day," Horn said. "I’m a bit the same as the Origin boys, I don’t spend the time worrying 8

22 May 2018 1:17 PM Brisbane set to table shock bid for Bellamy

Bennett still has a year to run on his deal but it has been an indifferent start for the Broncos, who sit in ninth spot despite all the resources at his disposal. If Brisbane were to sack Bennett, they would need to include his salary – as well as that of Bellamy – under the newly introduced football department "soft cap". One factor in Melbourne’s favour 22

19 May 2018 1:00 PM The end of the Bushrangers? Such is life

Today Australia is saturated with nonsensical names for its sporting teams. It starts with the Socceroos and Matildas in men’s and women’s soccer and gets worse from there. There’s the Boomers and the Opals in basketball; Sharks and Stingers in water polo; the Kookaburras and the Hockeyroos in hockey. If the names for our national teams reflect a desperate 29

18 May 2018 5:20 AM Wrong call: Leave cricket's toss of the coin alone

Darren Lehmann may no longer be coach of the Australian side but he could not have said it better when questioned whether the coin toss would be important heading into last year's tour of India. "We won four tosses last time we were here and lost 4-0. You've still got to play well if you win a toss," he said. While there is merit in examining whether 25

12 May 2018 12:54 PM Rising Avdulla cooking with gas at Scone

Avdulla dashed down the centre of the track on Pretty In Pink to win eased down by a couple of lengths from Invictus Salute ($6.50) and Lady Of Shalott ($5.50). O’Shea praised Avdulla’s ride because he didn’t panic and push the button too early. Avdulla showed it again a race later when Moss Trip ($3.60) won the Inglis Guineas, using her acceleration 24

11 May 2018 10:48 AM Impending's Doomben: Cummings backs sprinter to topple Redzel

One of Godolphin’s many homes is in the Hunter Valley, so the Scone weekend is an important date on the calendar, but the focus for trainer James Cummings will be on Impending in the Doomben 10,000 on Saturday. Godolphin’s trainer will be trackside at Doomben as Impending attempts to lower the colours of star sprinters Redzel and In Her Time to add a second 12

4 May 2018 5:46 AM Century beckons for Waugh in Lord Mayors Cup

“With Goathland, I found the right progression of races and he won at 1800m and will head to Brisbane for the carnival next week,” Waugh said. “It was harder with Our Century, because of his benchmark, but he has had a similar preparation and is ready to run the 2000m. “There is a good progression of races for him from here and, going on his past form, he should 21
