“My goal is always to play in the next game I’m going to play in, and play well for that team. My focus here with Randwick. “That is my priority now but obviously the end result, and the prime goal, is to get back in the baggy green and play the World Cup, but as I said it is a game at a time.” Warner took on his former captain Steve Smith, who is also serving 18

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 14

31 October 2018 9:01 AM Poor crowd mars PM's XI's upset of South Africa

The crowd figure even shrinks in comparison with the lowest in recorded history, which was set when 5370 watched the West Indies face the Prime Minister's XI in 2010.

Goodwin had the chance to sign for Sydney in the off-season but instead returned to Adelaide, where he won the 2016 A-League grand final before a two-season stint in the Netherlands.

27 October 2018 8:32 AM Boys in blue salute 'best of the best'

"She's the best of the best," says Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor, his trademark sunglasses on a gloomy day masking nothing but an honest opinion. Forget the bluster that has dominated the build-up all week, maybe this appraisal is the one that really matters. It's from one of the world's most recognisable horsemen, who has trained elite winners 22

27 October 2018 6:21 AM Ash Sykes asks favour of Canberra United fans

Matildas star Ellie Carpenter is the only returning player who regularly started last season, after many front line stars were shown the door. Garriock wanted to build her own squad and she's done exactly that with no less than 14 new faces. But it was signing club favourite Sykes as an assistant which proved one of her most important moves. Sykes shocked 16

21 October 2018 6:25 AM Ben Dwarshuis fits the new and old mould for PM's XI

"The Netherlands stuff never really got moving, it was something that was a possibility if I ever wanted to go down that line, but it was a bit of a long shot with it being a few generations back in my family," Dwarshuis said. "I put that on the backburner and I’m certainly focusing more on the Australian side now. I was very excited to be a part of that Twenty 14

20 October 2018 2:44 AM Gurinder Sandhu ready to bust through another barrier

If that hadn't happened, he might not have been in the position to replicate those heroics against the fourth-best one-day outfit in the world - but it did. "I’ll be looking forward to that game and it’ll be a nice little test to see where I’m at. I’ve played two of them before so it’s almost kind of a checkpoint game to see where you’re at and what you need to work on, and how much more improvement 16

16 October 2018 9:00 AM Goodwin out to prove Adelaide was the right call against Sydney FC

Craig Goodwin's time is now. After turning down an offer from Sydney FC in the off-season to return to Adelaide United, the lanky left-footer knows he has to dominate the A-League to cement himself as one of the country's best attacking players and realise his burning Socceroos ambitions. Sky Blues fans will be seeing a lot of Goodwin over the next couple 12
