The Canberra Capitals have signed American Kaili McLaren on a short-term contract to fill the void left by superstar Marianna Tolo for the opening months of the WNBL season. McLaren's contract runs until the start of December, with Tolo due to return in November following her second anterior cruciate ligament tear. It is a massive boost for a Capitals 6

19 August 2018 1:52 PM Socceroo Mark Milligan heading to Scottish Premier League

Socceroos defender Mark Milligan has signed a two-year deal with Scottish club Hibernian, subject to securing a work permit. The former Melbourne Victory captain, 33, impressed in his three matches for Australia at last month's World Cup in Russia. He has played 71 times for the Socceroos. "I know it's a big club with an exciting young squad, and I hope to be able to add to that with my experience 4

17 August 2018 7:42 AM Gridiron ACT shifts focus from 'ironman' to football

The ever-changing dynamic of ACT Gridiron has paved the way for former national team coach John Ludvigson to take charge of a new club and focus on playing football, not "ironman". The league has had a presence in Canberra since 1993 but ACT Gridiron has struggled to tap into a growing American football fan base with the league entrenched in a battle 5

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

14 August 2018 1:16 AM Smith regains No.1 Test batsman ranking despite Test cricket ban

OK, so the former Australian Test captain is still serving a 12-month suspension owing to his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal from South Africa earlier this year. But while he hasn’t played a Test since that happened in March, he has regained the No.1 spot on the ICC’s Test batting rankings, even though the only cricket he’s been playing is Twenty 8

11 August 2018 8:41 AM Kangaroos coach hopping mad over Warriors loss

West Belconnen's win shut the door on the Yass Magpies' hopes of sneaking into the top four, with the Magpies edging the Goulburn Bulldogs 28-22 at Goulburn. They needed a massive win and hope the Kangaroos did the same to the Warriors to have any chance of playing finals. Kangaroos coach Aaron Gorrell was confident they could turn the result around 10

2 August 2018 2:33 AM Former Arsenal star linked with A-League move

If Flamini signs, the defensively minded midfielder is unlikely to cure their goalscoring woes - the 33 they scored last year were only surpassed by last and second last-placed teams, Wellington and Central Coast - but the acquisitions of Socceroos striker Adam Taggart and veteran Danish winger Tobias Mikkelsen will help on that side of the ball. The Roar have marquee 13

31 July 2018 6:34 AM Pakistan scraps day-night Test in bid to have Australia in a spin

A year earlier, Yasir took 5-121 and 2-113 against the West Indies, a return which was said to have disappointed the PCB. Pakistan played a Test under lights at the Gabba in 2016 when they fell just short of a world record run chase. Yasir managed only three wickets. Pakistan lost last year's series 2-0 at home to Sri Lanka, something they will be desperately 16

31 July 2018 4:27 AM Western Derby 48: second clash of 2018 lacking firepower and fizzle

Lyon has delivered one of his worst performances in 11 years as a senior coach while, off the field, the club was dragged through the mud of a confidential sexual harrassment settlement that came to light involving the senior coach and a former female junior club staffer. If there is one small positive for both clubs ahead of Sunday's match, it's that the brouhaha 18

27 July 2018 8:00 AM Look outside NSW for the horses that are looking to Everest summit

A major point in the jockey’s case is lack of payment for jump outs, the conditioning phase between gallops and barrier trials that dominate the Victorian scene much more than Sydney. Jockeys get paid to ride in barrier trials but not jump outs. Certainly David Hayes, managing director of the family training partnerships, will have tuned Vega Magic 13
