19 August 2018 10:03 AM Canberra Brave's Jordie Gavin exits Brave Cave in style

The last two of those games will be a semi-final and hopefully a grand final. So the Brave are desperate for four wins. "Jordie leads by example.

15 August 2018 10:52 AM You can simply join the dots about New Zealand's next coach

Which is interesting, given that Taurua still has another year on her contract with Lightning, who are adamant that she has committed to them until at least the end of next year. A distinct possibility is that Taurua will do both. Which brings me to my next point. Announced in the Silver Ferns squad was none other than Laura Langman. The last we saw of Langman 6

It looks like a case of no Gaff, no Naitanui, no worries for the West Coast Eagles as they head for the AFL finals full of brotherhood and belief and primed for an unlikely assault on the AFL premiership. Adam Simpson's class of 2018 is looking steadier and sterner as the season rolls on with nothing, seemingly, able to clip their wings. Not the loss of their 12
