20 October 2018 7:26 AM Bin Suroor gets the tactics right as Best Solution takes Caulfield Cup

It was a second Caulfield group 1 for the Bin Suroor-Cosgrave combination in the Godolphin blue after Benbatl won the Caulfield Stakes last week. Best Solution might have got into the Caulfield Cup a touch light given he had won two German group 1s at his past two starts after winning a group 2 at the Newmarket July meeting. He lumped 57.5kg to victory 5

5 October 2018 12:04 PM Australia thrash New Zealand to secure series whitewash at Manuka Oval

The last time Australia played under Manuka Oval's diamonds in the sky there were five dropped catches and it didn't take long for the glittering lights to struck again after Lanning won the toss and elected to field. Beth Mooney put down a sitter on the fifth ball of the innings when she cut across Lanning to deny Megan Schutt a wicket and hand Kiwi opener 8

28 September 2018 11:21 AM How code-hopper Kimmince fell back in love with game – for third time

That was way back in 2009, not long after Kimmince made her international debut as an 18-year-old – seemingly with a long future in the green and gold. The Kimmince of today, who will on Saturday night play for Australia in prime time to possibly the biggest local TV audience ever for the national women's team, has learned to appreciate the fickleness 6

23 September 2018 5:09 AM 'Fear of losing' can reverse University of Canberra's deja vu

"Because you’ve got to work yourself into a condition where winning is something you get used to, and losing is something you don’t ever want. It’s a stage we’re slowly working towards anyway. "It means what we’re doing as a team is really starting to work. A lot of self-belief, that’s the big thing. Self-belief in each other and they’re really tightening 15

13 September 2018 4:43 AM Canberra kids give Cameron Crombie a silver lining

"Our season doesn’t really ramp up until the start of the new year when we start going on the national and state championship circuit. "We won’t compete at world championships until November so we’ve got a fair bit of time up our sleeve to work it out, but until then we’ll keep working through the little technical things we can do without loading up the back too much. "I probably 20

9 September 2018 8:26 PM It is Serena Williams who owes an apology to umpire Carlos Ramos

It happened at the 1987 US Open. I was the chair umpire for the fourth-round stadium court match between John McEnroe and Slobodan Zivojinovic where I issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe. The game penalty, for a string of obscenities directed at me, came at 4-5, costing McEnroe the set and making the match one set all. John McEnroe 21

3 September 2018 2:01 PM Race-by-race guide to Tuesday's meeting at Newcastle

Race 1: Class 1 & Maiden Plate (2360m): Tricky and fascinating little scamper here that should be dominated by those on debut and on-speed. The Snowden-trained 10-Starry – bred to get through soft ground – was close-up in a Randwick trial three weeks back run in good time. She looks far better served here after two starts in smart company in the Autumn 28

After being hand-picked by Dana White for a UFC contract, Aussie brawler Jim Crute will make his debut for the world's biggest fighting promotion this December in Adelaide. Crute, 22, has enjoyed an undefeated professional career so far, and a first round TKO win on 'Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series' was enough to persuade the UFC to offer 21

17 August 2018 12:40 AM Brett Fruend joins Queanbeyan Tigers 200 club

"I reckon the penny dropped somewhere along the way, because he turned up one pre-season and all of a sudden he was a running machine. "He’d gone from the back of the group to the front of the group in a reasonably short period of time. I’d seen him through that summer running the streets, and I reckon that became the foundation for his football, for his ability 22

9 August 2018 6:48 AM 'Champion human': Golfing world pays tribute to Jarrod Lyle

As news of the passing of Jarrod Lyle after a long battle with leukemia came to hand on Thursday morning, the outpouring of emotions from all corners of the sporting world immediately followed. Such was Lyle's popularity, both with fans and his fellow golfers, that to chronicle all of the well wishes and condolences to his family would be virtually impossible 15
