17 November 2018 8:08 AM Canberra's Brendan Jones partners up for Japanese feeding frenzy

Jones had just bogeyed the sixth with a three-putt, but an eagle on the very next hole kick started his climb up the leaderboard as Imahira also embarked on a hot streak. The Canberran had three birdies on the back nine and then finished off with another eagle on the 18th hole. "I played with a young guy up here, Shugo Imahira, who's leading the money 67

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

10 November 2018 7:02 AM Poetic justice as Santa Ana Lane sinks rivals

It was indeed poetic justice for the owners and the stable that Santa Ana Lane got the firmer surface down the straight that he had been denied in the monsoonal conditions in Sydney when he went north to contest The Everest. Like many in that race he simply could not act on the heavy ground in which the VRC Sprint Classic favourite Redzel had excelled 40

10 November 2018 5:02 AM Hayes can only rue what might have been in Cup as Jaameh delivers

Hayes and his crew lodged a protest at the time - ironic given that Jaameh was owned by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, the brother of Godolphin's creater Sheikh Mohammed - in the desperate hope that they might get the result reversed, so keen were they to ensure Jaameh could qualify for the Melbourne Cup. That attempt failed so in a last gasp bid to get the son of Iffraaj 40

9 November 2018 11:08 AM City win ugly, bounce back from Sydney humiliation

Frenchman Florin Berenguer had his most productive game for City so far, but still has room for improvement, while Lachie Wales and McGree showed why Joyce has given those two youngsters so much responsibility. Kearyn Baccus, meanwhile, continues to surprise in the middle of the park. Luke Brattan and Anthony Caceras were dropped from the squad with no suggestion 21

9 November 2018 9:00 AM 'Is this spam?' the dream email that sent Matildas teenager to Madrid

After reading the offer to become the first Australian to play for Atletico Madrid, she flipped the screen over to stare at the iconic celebration of Griezmann, just as she'd done for the last two years with Atletico star printed on her phone cover. Pinching herself, Chidiac had just become a flag-bearer for Australian women's football within one of the biggest 22

4 November 2018 8:21 AM Sam Kerr stuns Canberra United with eight minutes of madness

"She's just outstanding, she can create something from nothing, her runs... there's not much more I can say. "I don't think we were complacent at all. I said to the girls before the game we have to play for the full 90 because that's how dangerous Sam is. "When we didn't seal that fifth goal and missed an open goal they transitioned and scored within 25

3 November 2018 7:54 AM Nakeeta claims final spot in Melbourne Cup

Scottish trained eight-year-old Nakeeta claimed the final spot in Tuesday's Melbourne Cup field after master trainer Ed Dunlop scratched Red Verdon because of a bruised heel and Gai Waterhouse's Thinkin' Big failed in VRC Derby, finishing 12th after starting favourite. The barrier draw is set for 6.30pm with Japanese stayer Sole Impact set to just miss out unless 24

31 October 2018 7:29 AM Cup hopes on edge for Sir Charles Road after third in Bendigo Cup

A third placing for Sir Charles Road in the Bendigo Cup has catapulted him over Zacada and into 23rd spot in the order of entry for the Melbourne Cup. However the result leaves the locally-bred horse trained in New Zealand by Lance O'Sullivan and Andrew Scott vulnerable to missing a start as he needed a win to earn a penalty that could have pushed him further 20

30 October 2018 11:18 AM Goodwin conjures magical double to sink Sky Blues in FFA Cup final

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. The 26-year-old is now in his prime and could give the Socceroos an extra dimension at January's Asian Cup with his crafty left foot and his set-piece nous. The contest 18
