5 November 2018 5:46 AM Hard living and graft paid dividends for Sievier

Sievier, though, was a cad but among his attributes he was a horseman, a saddle edge on Flynn whose memoirs were titled My Wicked, Wicked Ways. Flynn rode in The Charge Of The Light Brigade, a black and white film epic, but on a rocking horse. The grapes are good at Rylstone and the ground also had the right nutrition for thoroughbreds because it gave The Grafter 10

English trainer Roger Charlton has snapped up British champion jockey Silvestre de Sousa to ride one of the Melbourne Cup favourites Withold.

West Coast coach Adam Simpson has confirmed the worst for Eagles fans, with ruckman Nic Naitanui to miss the rest of the season and best part of 2019 with another knee reconstruction.

11 February 2018 9:56 AM UFC 221: Brisbane fighters Brown and Nguyen fail to fire in Perth

It has been a fruitless morning for Brisbane fighters at UFC 221 in Perth, with both flyweight Ben Nguyen and featherweight Damien Brown losing their fights. It was a particularly bad morning for Nguyen, who was choked unconscious in the third round by Brazillian jiu jitsu ace Jussier Formiga. In a back-and-forth affair, Formiga likely won the first 76
