20 November 2018 6:33 AM ACA loses its appeal

No, all was not well in Australian cricket at the time of Cape Town, but flawed culture cannot be allowed to act as an historical smokescreen. In that moment, experienced adult professional sportsmen conspired in or assented to a wrong. They knew it, as their ham-fisted effort to cover it up and so compound the offence showed. That wasn't culture, that was the blind 81

After spending 18 years in the cross-faith Lebanese military, Wehbe moved to Sydney in 2008, joining a community that is among the oldest and most continuous migrant groups in Australia.

18 November 2018 6:08 AM 'We'll hold our ground': Aussies won't be combative Kohli's welcome mat

Rivals have noticed a marked change in Australia's conduct but Paine's side has not met an adversary capable of stirring the pot like Kohli. Australia will not want to let Kohli walk over them like a welcome mat but know their every move will come under the microscope. Kohli claimed last week that he no longer needed to engage in an argument to get into the contest 67

17 November 2018 5:40 AM Pike's blistering round compulsory viewing for good mate Jason Day

"I've been fortunate enough to know him 16 or 17 years. I went over there are a couple of times this year to see him in Ohio. It's sad not to see him back here, but he did just have his third kid,'' Pike told Fairfax Media. "He's really good for bouncing ideas off. The best thing about Jason is it doesn't matter if he's talking to 'Aaron Pike' who has only won a Victorian 58

17 November 2018 3:31 AM Ball sits on edge of cup for 35 seconds ... and goes in

He was originally credited with a birdie, but an on-course rules official later told McLeod of the one-stroke penalty on the next hole. Tournament director Trevor Herden will discuss the issue with McLeod after the round and determine whether the penalty stands. The 24-year-old broke through for his first professional win last week at the NSW Open and fleetingly 66

15 November 2018 3:10 AM Benbow hits the road with Noumea in his comeback

“The first thing I remember was in hospital and they told me I had a broken back and would be out for a while.” Benbow has been back riding for two months and Noumea, which comes to Rosehill on Saturday, has given him his biggest success since then in the Coleraine Cup in September. He has ridden six winners and follows the six-year-old to Sydney as he steps 30

13 November 2018 6:41 AM The Tonk: Breakfast club ends for axed CA executive

With Ben Amarfio departing Cricket Australia, so, too, will the gibes about how the former head of broadcasting had his assistant, Belinda, cook a hot breakfast for him – although there is some debate about this. There are former CA employees who insist that was the case, while others insist Amarfio was on the pre-made Lite N' Easy meal program at the time, where 33

13 November 2018 5:27 AM Payne seeks winning momentum with top-line jockey

Rosehill trainer David Payne has turned to 11-time group 1-winning hoop Tye Angland in a bid to give Momentum To Win exactly that at Hawkesbury today. Payne has been given dispensation by stewards for the gelding to carry an extra half-kilogram in a 2000-metre class 2 handicap as the four-year-old chases a first win in almost eight months. That March 34

10 November 2018 7:18 AM Group 1 dream comes true for Jarrod McLean with Trap For Fools

The cumulative effect of those events was that Trap For Fools entered the Mackinnon Stakes ready to run a huge race in an attempt to land McLean his first group 1 as a trainer in his own right. "We knew he was the leader in the race and it was a matter of John [Allen] getting his clock right and cranking him up at the right time." Allen jumped from the barriers 40

7 November 2018 7:32 AM Newnham hopes for a group 1 and a Ladies Day surprise

“You look at the Derby winner and he was very impressive at Flemington then disappointing at Caulfield before winning on Saturday,” Newnham said. “Hopefully she can do the same.” Back at Hawkesbury the Spring Provincial Series continues with its third heat where Bobbing will be looking for a hat-trick this time in. Trainer Bernie Kelly has decided to take a shot at the rich series 28
