2 September 2018 3:20 AM Weir's big guns fire early but plenty more to come when spring hots up

Since moving to Weir's Ballarat yard, Nature Strip has won a back-end three-year-old handicap at Flemington and followed up at the same track over 1200 metres in a set weights and penalties event. After a three-week let-up he went to Adelaide to win in listed company, easily seeing off the highly-regarded filly Sunlight, who is a year younger. The horse's 40

27 August 2018 6:54 AM Luc Longley thinks sound could trump sight when Boomers take on USA

“I played in front of 30,000 people in Toronto in the frenzy of MJ’s return and I thought that was overwhelming so this will be great.” Tickets for the two games on August 22 and 24 next year go on sale to the public on Wednesday and organisers are confident they could be sold out quickly judging from the pre-sales.

5 August 2018 11:00 AM Cooma's Ben Thompson books a world title shot

But things are slightly different this time around with Iliev opting to take the fight on the condition it was under Muay Thai rules, which utilise the eight-point striking system (punches, kicks, knees, elbows) and the full clinch, rather than the K1 rules they fought under last time. That won't bother Thompson. If he can put it all together like he did against 43

27 June 2018 1:30 AM Van Marwijk exits with no regrets over Cahill, selection or style

Van Marwijk won't lose any sleep over his reluctance to use Tim Cahill until the final 40 minutes of Australia's World Cup campaign - despite the condemnation and clamour for his inclusion from some of the more fevered elements of the Australian media - nor his failure to use Massimo Luongo, or several others, for a minute in this tournament. He works 30

16 June 2018 10:37 AM Canberra FC down Gungahlin United to book spot in FFA Cup round of 32

Gungahlin were on the board first and although Canberra quickly equalised, they could have been reduced to 10 men on 43 minutes. United winger Thomas Muller burst down the right flank and was about to play Antoni Timotheou in on goal when he was brought down from behind by Marko Vrkic. It looked a blatant foul, which could easily have been a straight 57

9 June 2018 1:31 AM Mr Lebanon: Nabbout flying the flag for his community in Russia

For the best part of six years, Andrew Nabbout has been brushing off a constant advance. Since he was 19, the Lebanese Football Association have been calling him up to their national team. No matter how hard they tried, he kept knocking them back, even in the times when he felt discarded by Australian football. His reason was simple: he never lost hope of playing 120

27 March 2018 9:22 PM Late penalty save sees Socceroos draw with Colombia

This was a Colombian side that had stunned France in Paris just four days earlier when they came back from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2. They produced more chances, struck the woodwork several times, missed that penalty and other good opportunities, but Australia stuck to their guns and showed they had absorbed more of new coach Bert van Marwijk's instructions 63

Staff at a hotel in Brisbane’s north have escaped unharmed after they were threatened by men armed with a machete and guns in the early hours of Thursday morning. The three men, who police said were armed with two firearms and a machete, entered the Edinburgh Castle Hotel on Gympie Road at Kedron about 3.40am. Once inside, they threatened a staff member 93

18 January 2018 11:17 PM FFA confirm Colombia match for London as new Socceroos coach appointment looms

Bert Van Marwijk, Graham Arnold, Marcelo Bielsa, Louis Van Gaal, Tony Popovic or whoever it is that finally lands the Socceroos job will have two games in four days in late March to familiarise himself with his new charges before making crucial decisions on who will make the World Cup squad for Russia 2018, and who will miss out. The FFA had already 36

6 January 2018 5:25 AM Marc Leishman stays hot to share PGA Maui lead

Maui: Marc Leishman has fended off charges from big guns Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth to stay atop the leaderboard after the second round of the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. After setting the pace following the first round at Kapalua's Plantation course on Maui, Leishman battled a misbehaving putter to scratch out a four-under-par 69 and at 10 under 49
