The compound, located at the former Darwin Hospital site in Larrakeyah, housed indigenous people under the laws of the day, for 25 years. Territory boxing legend Boyd Scully wants to commemorate the centenary by staging an indoor boxing tournament featuring a card of top fighters. The August 4 Kahlin Knockout at Marraras Portuguese-Timorese Club will pay tribute to all those people who lived in the compound. Scully has aimed at a rare afternoon event, scheduling 10 bouts between the 1.30pm and 4.30pm timeslot. He has invited fighters from Queensland and NSW to the Top End to lock horns with a list of local fighters. Sikaron Boxing Clubs Modest Mbemap and Kyle Korpus and King Brown combatants Eddie Neave and Byron Davis will test their skills against the interstate raiders. Queenslanders Malaki Johnson, Ben Horn and Miles Zalewski will be joined by Port Macquarie fighter Luke Travers from NSW. Its all about remembering the Kahlin Compound, what it meant for indigenous people and what the place stood for, Scully said. I think it was a significant part of Darwins history and deserves a lot of recognition. Public admission for the Kahlin Knockout tournament is free. Real deal for Geale BOXING A STRONGER Daniel Geale is intent on making a boxing statement and silencing some of his critics when he makes his next IBF middleweight world title defence and American debut against Englishman Darren Barker next month. The fight in Atlantic City on August 18 represents Geales first live opportunity to persuade American fight fans and commentators he belongs in the upper echelons of the glamorous middleweight division. While he has won two world titles in Germany against fighters from that country, Geale knows winning the hearts and minds of influential people in boxings biggest market is crucial to the development of his career. Its a huge challenge, but I am looking forward to it greatly, he said. Wild Brumbies plot to take No. 2 spot RUGBY UNION THE Brumbies are aiming to snuff out a second blossoming dynasty in as many weeks in a bid to become Super Rugbys second most successful franchise behind New Zealands Crusaders. Five of Super Rugbys six title-winning teams made the finals this year, of which two of the three most successful the Crusaders and Bulls were knocked out in tight semi-final contests by the Chiefs and the Brumbies over the weekend. A win in Saturdays grand final against the Chiefs in Hamilton would elevate the fourth-best Brumbies to Super Rugbys second most successful franchise with three championship wins and three runners-up finishes. That would place them only behind seven-time champions the Crusaders. In one fell swoop, the Brumbies would leapfrog both the Blues and the Bulls. But first they will need to beat the defending champion Chiefs, who are in the midst of developing their own Super Rugby dynasty. The Crusaders have really dominated Super Rugby and every franchise is now trying to do that, Brumbies coach Jake White said. Everyone aspires to it and its that sort of achievement that you want to try and get to. But in order to do so, the Brumbies will have to back up their surprise win against the Bulls in Pretoria by accomplishing several feats no Australian or South African side has ever managed in the competitions 18-year history. That includes winning any type of finals match in New Zealand, winning a decider in a foreign country, winning a final after finishing outside the top two and winning a final after crossing the Indian Ocean in the lead-up week. The Wallabies will tweak their Rugby Championship training camp to cater for the Brumbies shock qualification for the grand final. But that does not worry new national coach Ewen McKenzie even though the Wallabies have had to alter plans for their upcoming 40-man camp in preparation for the first Bledisloe Cup match against New Zealand in Sydney on August 17. The Brumbies have the most number of players in the Australian squad with 12. Well tweak our camp around that. Weve always had that in the back of our mind as a possibility. We can adapt, it wont affect our preparation, McKenzie said. Its a back scratching exercise. Well find the best outcome for everyone. We definitely want to have a presence in the (Super Rugby) final. Its great that theyre mixing and flying the flag for Australia, the former Queensland Reds director of coaching said. Hellenics Tenikah Jaques (left) and Sophie Vandenberg lock horns as Litchfield falls to Hellenic in womens Division 1 Picture: DANIEL HARTLEY-ALLEN Rowdies revival revelry as Hellenic fall SOCCER By IANBUTTERWORTH CASUARINA have well and truly awakened from a midseason slump. In their latest match, they came away with a 1-0 win over the high-flying Hellenic in the mens NorZone Division 1 game played at the Football Stadium on Saturday night. The only goal of the match was scored by Zelio Casimiro when he slammed home in the 24th minute which presented the Rowdies with their third successive win after having a torrid time against all opponents, including Palmerston, who smashed them 3-1 back in round 13. Port Darwin are also becoming the flavour of the month and have broken away as clear ladder leaders following their 5-2 win over NTC on Friday night. The beauty of the Port victory was the goals were shared by five players. Port leapt out of the blocks and had four goals on the board inside the first 15 minutes. Paddy McGuire started the spree when he whacked the ball into the net in the 3rd minute and he was followed by Shane ONeill (6), Helio Carvalho (9) and Munya Ruparanganda (12). Danny Marimbe (24) got one back for NTC, but the contest was virtually over by half-time. In Sundays match between Mindil and Palmerston, scores were locked 0-0 at the break, but a second half hattrick by Mindil striker Daniele Cardellini (64, 69, 85) sealed the deal for the men in black and gold. The Uni Azzurri-Darwin Olympic match is played tonight at the Football Stadium. Hellenic retained top spot on the womens Division 1 ladder, ahead of Olympic on goal difference, following a solid 4-1 win over Litchfield at Freds Pass on Sunday. After scoring a goal each in the first half, the women in blue knocked in three more, holding Litchfield scoreless. Darwin Olympic young gun Shekeine De Satge got a double (32, 86) in the Reds 3-0 victory over Uni Azzurri. Pierre Koulakis also scored for Olympic in the 30th minute.
