"The hope was his injury would recover and he’d get back into it around that time. I’ve got to speak to the Brumbies people a bit further along about how he is tracking with his return to play, what he can do, what he can’t do with his involvement. Mann-Rea's injury opened the door for Connal McInerney to revive the Super Rugby dream he had all but given 13

“It was in the final term and Kristy looks down the bench and told me to warm up as I was going in – I don’t know what I did, maybe a run through then I went to put on the GK bib for some reason, then I was told, 'No Tilly, put on goal defence'. “Rob just told me to relax and have fun out there. I was matching up with Nat Medhurst and she was so quick 11

"It’s not about a contest or who has the most money, this is about bringing something to a region I care deeply about. It’s about giving the city something it wants and needs. "It was more anticipation than relief or anything and now we're in, lets go get it, let's go show them how we’re going to build this club." Canberra are the only bid which already 10

"Every single girl here is so proud to be a part of this team and we just want to go out there and give it our best.

14 June 2018 7:39 AM Nabbout in the box seat to spearhead Australia's attack against France

However, it's not just the Dutchman who has publicly recognised the threat of Nabbout, but France coach Didier Deschamps. The former World Cup-winning captain singled out the strength and aggression of Nabbout as one of Australia's main attacking weapons, despite likely not knowing anything about the forward just three months ago. "To be recognised by him is pretty 16

9 June 2018 11:53 PM Daniel Arzani to rescue as Socceroos struggle to beat Hungary

A solo run, a long-range strike and a hint of generous 14

"I always wanted to go back and seeing them having a good crack last year... I just want another chance in the NRC and to give it one last crack," Taueki said. "I enjoyed league but I guess my heart has always been in union. To make Vikings I need to improve physically in attack, I really need to knuckle down there. "But I guess it’s a bit of everything 2

Tennis ACT boss Kim Kachel wants to capitalise on the "huge opportunity" to grow the sport in Canberra. "We’re very thankful for redevelopment here at Lyneham, it has provided showpiece facility for world-class tennis, which we've seen, but there's a real opportunity in our growth corridors," Kachel said. "There are areas across Canberra well below the national 26

Arawang established themselves as the only unbeaten state league netball team after they dispatched Tuggeranong 59-39 in the top-of-the-table clash on Friday. They traded blows early and Tuggeranong looked the better in attack but Arawang were equal to the challenge in defence.
