18 November 2018 8:48 AM Appoint Percy goes back-to-back at Canberra to put injuries behind him

It was his second straight victory after saluting at the same track on Melbourne Cup Day almost two weeks ago. "It's been a long road with this horse. He's had a lot of injuries and it looked like being the best horse I ever trained, but unfortunately he had a few injuries and it's taken a lot of work to get him back to the races," Pepper said. "It's 68

18 November 2018 8:46 AM Papadatos rebounds from four-putt to earn Royal Portrush dream start

Four isn’t an ugly number in golf, except on the green. For Dimi Papadatos, the four putts he took at the 14th hole at The Lakes on Sunday could have derailed not one but two major golfing dreams. It crushed what little chance he had of chasing down runaway winner Abraham Ancer. But little did Papadatos know, his response would lead him to Royal Portrush 65

17 November 2018 11:19 AM Cavalry Aced as ABL charge yet to begin

They extended the lead to seven in the sixth, both Jared Cruz and Jarryd Dale bringing home runners. On a bright note for the Cavalry, Canberra product Logan Kingham's first ABL at-bat produced the visitors' opening run of the game - scoring David Kandilas. But Melbourne just inflicted more pain on the Cavalry, George hitting a home run to start a three-run 65

16 November 2018 5:20 AM Poor pitch sees international switched from Ballymore to QSAC

The Taeguk Warriors have been training at Perry Park in the lead-up to Saturday's match against the Socceroos at Suncorp Stadium, which is expected to attract a crowd of up to 40,000 people. It would be fair to say South Korea v Uzbekistan would not bother the turnstyles quite so much, but with about 2500 Korean fans in town for their match against the Socceroos 60

15 November 2018 8:42 AM 'Legs like jelly': Davis' Open defence stalls after nervous start

"I was trying really hard, probably a little bit too hard. I was a little bit nervous obviously. As soon as I heard my name on the first tee the legs were a little bit like jelly and I tried a little too hard probably. "I was fine up until that point and it's something I need to get used to I guess. Other than that start I played a pretty good round 30

13 November 2018 3:34 AM Melbourne United slow the pace for NZ Breakers

"Wesley was fantastic in that first game and we have to change our coverages a little on him," Vickerman said. "We did a really good job on Webster but then Patrick Richard was someone who hit a couple of big shots late in that game. "They have a good inside, outside attack and when they played fast against Brisbane the other day they got a 20-point 31

11 November 2018 7:39 AM Federal winner flags golden link with Canberra track star

Corey Lamb produced a stunning final hole to win the men's, pinching the title by one shot from Charlie Dann. For Kim it was a far more comfortable win, leading from the opening round to add to her victory at the Youth Olympics in Argentina. That gold medal earned her the right to carry the Australian flag at the closing ceremony. "[Keely] was the opening 30

5 November 2018 8:54 AM ACT Gridiron set for Capital Bowl

Centurions offensive linesman Timmy Allen had a day to remember. He was involved in nearly every play and found himself on the scoresheet when he charged down a punt and returned the ball to the endzone for the Centurions to take a 14-6 lead. Allen was a dominate force for the Centurions and will be a handful in the grand final next week. James Hegarty 24

5 November 2018 6:19 AM Cricket ACT legend Peter Solway to lead Australia

He has won more grand finals and scored more runs than any other player in ACT first grade history, his high score of 339 has stood the test of time for almost 30 years, and he suited up for the Prime Minister's XI alongside Ricky Ponting, Matthew Hayden and Justin Langer. As impressive as those numbers are, none of it comes close to seeing his sons Dean and Mark turn out for the Bluebags 23

4 November 2018 11:43 AM McLaughlin extends Supercars title lead with home win

On Saturday, he was shunted by van Gisbergen and finished second behind his rival, then locked in his car when the Red Bull HRT driver parked him in before celebrating. Plenty of drivers on the Supercars grid might have blown up after the antics. But McLaughlin and his team did their talking on the track, with superior pit work and a sterling drive that ensures 20
