For the first time in a couple of yearswe are only looking at bringing only four imports in, compared to about nine last year. The team can only get better now THE next generation of Territory hockey stars get their chance to impress when the National Under-21 Championships get underway this week. This years tournament carries extra significance given its the major platform for Australian selectors to choose a squad for the Junior World Cup. Darwin will host the womens, while the mens travel to Brisbane for the national championships, which both kick off today. Jillaroos striker Brooke Peris and goal-keeper Elizabeth Duguid who have both played for the Hockeyroos senior side will cocaptain the NT womens side as they hope to add a JWC berth to their already impressive careers. Coach Mark Davis said the side was motivated to play in front of a home crowd. Its going to be a challenge for us to keep their minds on the job and not stress out about that selection, he said. But I know they both had very, very good world cup qualifier performances and Im hoping they can really pull through. Obviously being a home tournament the girls are a bit more motivated. In the end we only lost a couple of players from last year so this is a team that has been together for a while now since under-15s. For the first time in a couple of years we are only looking at bringing only four imports in, compared to about nine last year. The team can only get better now. Goal-keeper Adam Luck and midfielder Jeremy Hayward will lead the mens side in Brisbane as they too are hoping to break into the Australian side. Luck has had an impressive 12 months culminating in Youth Olympics Games selection while Hayward has been on the national fringe for a number of years. New coach Nick Lenoir said gelling together would be the biggest challenge for the NT side. Its been different to anything Ive ever done because we have only had four players based in Darwin, he said. Another seven will meet us in Brisbane, so its a unique situation. Weve been able to pick up some quality players from around the country, and having Jeremy Hayward and Adam Luck in the side as well pushing for Junior World Cup selection is pretty good they are both in really good form. Its a pretty good mix of youth and experience but . . . how we will play will be determined after we get together as a group.

Early in the season these games can be just the luck of the draw in terms of who wins them. We were unfortunate today and we just need to keep at it. Theres no point moping around. The Hawks have only a sixday break before playing West Coast in Perth and are unlikely to recall captain Luke Hodge who resumed with Box Hill Hawks in the VFL at the weekend. He said Hodge can be recalled for the Eagles, but could also remain in the VFL for another three weeks. Defender Brian Lake, who withdrew from yesterdays side, must pass a fitness test. Geelong was superbly led yesterday by skipper Joel Selwood and his band of midfield runners. When most players were sucking in deep breaths in the last term, Cats Travis Varcoe, Steven Motlop and Allen Christensen found acres of space to run and carry with devastating effect. Goals by Christensen, James Podsiadly and Mitch Duncan pushed the Cats lead to 21 points with only 10 minutes left on the clock. And, while the brave Hawks kept coming with answering goals from Luke Breust and Savage, they were always going to run out of time as much as legs. Geelongs defence, so shaky in the first half, regained control, with Tom Lonergan containing Lance Franklin to just two goals. And he had wonderful support from Harry Taylor, Andrew Mackie and Jared Rivers, particularly when the dangerous high balls floated within Buddys reach. Hawthorn should have gone into the long break with a bigger buffer than 20 points, particularly with 11 more inside 50 entries. The Hawks dominated the first half, especially the centre clearances, with Sam Mitchell, Jordan Lewis and Brad Sewell right on top, and looked far more potent going forward than the Cats. It may have taken the Cats 25 minutes to post their first goal and another half hour to find their touch, but the breathtaking manner in which they wrested the game away from the Hawks after half-time again showed who was boss in these contests. Sunderland vice-chairman quits in protest over coach SOCCER PAOLO Di Canio was named the new coach of English Premier League strugglers Sunderland yesterday, a move which sparked the resignation of a former foreign minister from the club board who was outraged by the Italians right-wing views. Di Canio replaced Martin ONeill, who was sacked on Sunday following a 1-0 home defeat to Manchester United that left them just a point above the relegation zone. Sunderland AFC have confirmed the appointment of Paolo Di Canio as Head Coach on a 2 year deal, the club said in a statement. Di Canio will take charge from today. The 44-year-old left thirdtier Swindon Town in February, having guided the club to promotion from League Two. His appointment immediately sent shockwaves through the struggling club with David Miliband, the British foreign minister from 2007-2010, resigning from his role as vice-chairman and non-executive director. Miliband said he was quitting in protest at Di Canios self-proclaimed support of fascism and his praise for former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. I think it right to step down, Miliband said.
