    A YOUNG West Australian freestyle motocross rider looks to have escaped permanent injury after a sickening crash at the first Australian Freestyle Motocross Championships at Latrobe on Saturday.

    The 21-year-old crashed after performing a trick during the qualifying rounds in front of 3000 people.

    He was attempting a solo trick in the qualifying rounds then he failed to land correctly and suffered what was thought to be critical head injuries at the time.

    The event was halted for two hours while the rider was stablised by Ambulance Tasmania officers before being transported to the Mersey Community Hospital.

  • U-19 reps faceconduct hearing

    Date: 2018.09.16 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    A HOST of Newcastle under19 representatives will face a Cricket NSW code of conduct hearing on Monday night to explain allegations of inappropriate off-field behaviour at the recent NSW Country Colts carnival in Coffs Harbour.

    It is alleged players staying at a caravan park two weekends ago offended other guests, and the park’s management, with a late-night party and the state in which they left their room.

    Newcastle District Cricket Association chairman Paul Marjoribanks expected at least 10 of the 12-player squad, plus officials, to attend the hearing but said the majority of them had no involvement in the incident.

    ‘‘We’ve had some mums and dads on the phone, saying their boys are totally innocent and were in their room asleep,’’ Marjoribanks said.

    ‘‘It sounds like there may only be two or three kids implicated.’’

    Marjoribanks said there was ‘‘definitely no violence or damage of property’’.

    ‘‘It was just loud music after midnight that caused other guests to complain and it sounds like it escalated from there,’’ he said.

    Players from the Central Coast and Riverina teams will also face separate Cricket NSW inquiries relating to their involvement.

    The allegations stem from the Saturday night of the carnival. The following day, Newcastle lost to Central North in the final.

    Marjoribanks said if players were found to have breached the code of conduct, possible sanctions included suspensions or being ruled ineligible for selection in the NSW Country Colts.

    Meanwhile, Toronto, Merewether, University and Hamilton-Wickham advanced into round four of the SCG Country Cup with wins on Sunday. Toronto lost only three wickets chasing Wests’ 231 at Ron Hill Oval, after an unbroken stand between skipper Joey Price (82 not out) and veteran Paul Toole (76 not out).

    Mark Dries took 5-12 for Hamwicks as they crushed Kincumber (61) by nine wickets at Passmore Oval.

    University beat Wallsend (93) by eight wickets at Uni Oval, and Merewether lost only two batsmen chasing down The Entrance (97).

    On Saturday, University leapfrogged Merewether to the top of the table after an outright win at home to Wests.

    Defending 9-294, Uni bundled out Wests for 115 and 105 to claim maximum points.

    Belmont were the other big movers, climbing into the top four after their second consecutive outright win.

    Having taken first-innings points against Waratah-Mayfield on day one at Waratah Oval, Belmont knocked over Waratah’s last five wickets and lost only one wicket chasing the 30 runs required.

    At Cardiff Oval, teenager Bayley McGill scored 112 from 120 balls as Cardiff-Boolaroo (267) cruised past Wallsend’s 154 four down and enjoyed some batting practice.

    It was a similar story at No.1 Sportsground, where Hamwicks, beaten on the first innings by Merewether, racked up 7-311 in their second dig. Hamwicks skipper skipper Josh Trappel (129) and Jason Keelan (105) shared a third-wicket stand of 212.

    At Kahibah Oval, Charlestown (151) claimed first-innings points against Stockton (98).The home side then ground out 85 in their second innings, to which Stockton replied with 4-48.

    At Learmonth Park, Joey Price followed his 92 last week with a five-wicket haul as Toronto (257) beat Newcastle City (156).

  • Gillie’s sights on Burnie Cup

    Date: 2018.09.16 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    BURNIE trainer Robert Gillie has his sights on his home-town cup after Willbe Doc returned from a short spell to record the fastest win of his career at Mowbray last night.

    Given a nice run by driver Troy Hillier, Willbe Doc ($16) finished strongly to beat pacemaker Original Art ($5.20) and Notimetothink ($7) in the Mustad Australia Stakes.

    Gillie, who also part-owns the six-year-old, was delighted with the result.

    ‘‘He went really well – that’s the first time he’s broken two minutes,’’ the trainer said after Willbe Doc returned a mile-rate of 1:58.9 for the 1680 metres.

    ‘‘He’s always been a consistent horse – not quite top-class but a good money-spinner.’’

    From 49 starts, Willbe Doc has recorded eight wins and 23 placings.

    ‘‘He’s a C4-class horse now, so he’s qualified for the Burnie Cup, which is a race I’d like to win,’’ Gillie said.

    Cup hopes

    BRIGHTON trainer Christian Salter also has cup aspirations for Jubilee Bakery Pace winner Aninchofhislife.

    His target is the Hobart Cup, a race in which Aninchofhislife’s half-brother Drifting West ran second in 2013.

    ‘‘He needs to win another race to get a start, but I think he’s earned a chance at some better races,’’ Salter said after Aninchofhislife led all the way to beat El Jays Magic and Melolyn.

    ‘‘He’s been a consistent horse but he’s also been a bit unlucky at times.’’

    Salter said that he had decided to bite the bullet in last night’s race and go for the lead from his pole draw.

    ‘‘I’ve been handing up on him but I thought if he led in this race he might get an easy time in front.

    ‘‘There was no standout in the field – they were just an even lot.’’

    Salter is optimistic that Aninchofhislife, a six-year-old, will continue to improve.

    ‘‘Drifting West got better as he got older,’’ the trainer said.

    Salter prepares an Inchofhislife for his partner Sally McCoull, and the win completed a stable double.

    Miss Lively also led all the way in the Roberts Equine Pace.

    Tyson surprises

    CARRICK trainer-driver Ross Freeman didn’t think My Mate Tyson was a winning chance last night – either before the race or during it.

    But the lightly raced three-year-old gave him a pleasant surprise when he powered home for a half-head win at odds of $17.50 in the Economy Warehouse Stakes.

    ‘‘I didn’t give him much of a chance before the race and, from where he was turning for home, I thought he had no hope,’’ Freeman said.

    However, with the leaders paddling, My Mate Tyson made up three lengths in the last 50m to break his maiden status at his sixth start.

    Freeman races the gelding in partnership with his wife, Cheryl, and he’s named after their six-year-old grandson Tyson Sherwood.

    Double miss

    REINSMAN Mark Yole was unavailable to drive at last night’s meeting and it cost him two winners.

    Yole was replaced by Ricky Duggan on Saab Quality and by Nathan Ford on Margin Girl.

  • Early misses prove costly for Newcastle

    Date: 2018.09.16 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    NEWCASTLE were made to pay for missing their first-half chances as Devante Clut inspired Brisbane to a 2-0 win in the round-five National Youth League match at Weston Park.

    Clut scored with a solo effort in the 55th minute then drew the penalty which gave A-League player Kofi Danning the chance to make it 2-0 in the 75th minute on Saturday night.

    The loss left Newcastle with four points from four games and came after a 5-0 win over FFA Centre of Excellence last week in which they led 1-0 at half-time.

    The Jets lost 3-0 to Perth the round before.

    Jets coach James Pascoe said the home side hit the woodwork three times in the first half, had a one-on-one chance and fired at least three balls across the six-yard box without getting the final touch to score.

    Clut made them pay when he beat a defender then rounded goalkeeper John Solari to score before drawing a foul from Roman Hoffman when contesting a high ball in the area.

    Pascoe was frustrated with the result and another week of missed opportunities.

    ‘‘I was content with the first-half effort but we haven’t been able to come out with the same intensity in the second,’’ he said. ‘‘We got bogged down in the middle third and they didn’t have a lot of chances either.’’

    Pascoe said Michael Kantarovski worked hard in midfield.

    Reece Papas was the only injury concern for Newcastle after coming off early with a hamstring strain. He faces three to four weeks on the sideline.
