18 November 2018 4:53 AM NSW Blue Kurtis Patterson hunts for answers

"I’m trying to stick to the positives, which is the fact I am getting started and being consistent in a lot of innings."

17 November 2018 8:08 AM Canberra's Brendan Jones partners up for Japanese feeding frenzy

Jones had just bogeyed the sixth with a three-putt, but an eagle on the very next hole kick started his climb up the leaderboard as Imahira also embarked on a hot streak. The Canberran had three birdies on the back nine and then finished off with another eagle on the 18th hole. "I played with a young guy up here, Shugo Imahira, who's leading the money 34

16 November 2018 5:16 AM 'Strikes integrity a bit': R&A called to rule on Colsaerts penalty

Australian Open organisers consulted The R&A in the middle of the night in Europe for guidance on the Colsaerts decision, which eventually cleared the Belgian of any wrongdoing.

14 November 2018 5:32 AM Defending Open champion Cameron Davis better prepared than last year

14 November 2018 4:53 AM Big hit: It's country ahead of IPL pay day for me, says Starc

However, the workload and injury debate also impacts batsmen and all-rounders, including power hitter Chris Lynn, who continues to nurse a troublesome shoulder which prevents him from diving in the field.

10 November 2018 5:02 AM Hayes can only rue what might have been in Cup as Jaameh delivers

Hayes and his crew lodged a protest at the time - ironic given that Jaameh was owned by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, the brother of Godolphin's creater Sheikh Mohammed - in the desperate hope that they might get the result reversed, so keen were they to ensure Jaameh could qualify for the Melbourne Cup. That attempt failed so in a last gasp bid to get the son of Iffraaj 23

After reading the offer to become the first Australian to play for Atletico Madrid, she flipped the screen over to stare at the iconic celebration of Griezmann, just as she'd done for the last two years with Atletico star printed on her phone cover. Pinching herself, Chidiac had just become a flag-bearer for Australian women's football within one of the biggest 10

9 November 2018 6:35 AM Chloe Hosking nominated for cycling's moment of the year

Such a big deal, in fact, that it has seen Chloe Hosking shortlisted for the Australian Cycling Moment of the Year award. Hosking couldn't contain her excitement when she crossed the line to claim gold in the 112.2 kilometre road race at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April. The win on home soil will go down as one of the greatest moments 7

9 November 2018 6:19 AM Group 1 victory on Pierata the perfect way for Berry to thank Hickman

“I always thought he would suit this horse and it has worked out that he has been able to hook up with him at the right time. Hickman of course remembers the Berry boys as a pair. The twins were always together. Nathan tragically died four years ago from NORSE syndrome, an acute form of epilepsy, while riding in Singapore. Tommy Berry's ride on Pierata 10
