It went on to become a smash hit for Split Enz, but Michael Rawiri may beg to differ with his countryman. The New Zealand-born mentor is returning as coach of the Territory Titans senior rugby league team a role he held in 2007 and 2008. His return can be traced to NTRL general manager John Mitchell, who made Rawiri his No. 1 target after Merg Mikaelian could not continue as coach after moving interstate. Mitchell is rapt to get his man and Rawiri says he is rejuventated after two years away from the game after his departure as head coach of the NTIS rugby league program in 2009. The Titans being successful is not a one-off priority, ensuring the long-term future of the Northern Territory Rugby League at representative level is paramount, Rawiri said. I was very impressed with John in my meetings with him and Im quite confident about working with him and the team to deliver the right outcomes for Northern Territory rugby league. Rawiris seven seasons in charge at the NTIS saw a sustained period of success for the Territory at junior level and he is confident that formula will work in the senior ranks. My job is to win with the team, but there are processes leading up to that and it is important we all work together with one cause, Rawiri said. I have an insight and knowledge of these players from past years, they know what to expect from me and the level of commitment required to play at representative level. Rawiri is already planning the make-up of his squad for 2012, but said a Darwin v The Rest selection trial, to be played as a curtain-raiser to Aprils NRL clash between Sydney Roosters and North Queensland also would prove critical in terms of selection. Taking NT baseball to the world Cancer survivor Narelle Gosstray has been appointed to the International Baseball Federation commission Picture: DANIEL HARTLEY-ALLEN BASEBALL By JESSWEBSTER Its a huge honour and its really exciting A TOP Territory sportswoman keeps knocking them out of the park. Nightcliff Tigers baseball player-coach Narelle Gosstray has long fought for women to be accepted in the traditional male sport, but last September had to use that fighting spirit to battle breast cancer. The former Australian representatives career reached the ultimate high last week when she was appointed to the International Baseball Federation (IBAF) commission just after reaching the one-year cancerfree milestone. Gosstrays role in the commission is to increase the number of females playing baseball throughout the world. Its a huge honour and its really exciting, she said. We will be making recommendations to the IBAF which will then feed out to national organisations around the world. Gosstray has an impressive baseball pedigree that includes playing for the Australian womens national team from 2001-05 and she has coached the Aussie Hearts on six international tours. She is the only woman to have ever coached a mens Darwin Baseball League club (Nightcliff) and was the first woman to coach the Australian junior side last year. During her battle with cancer, Gosstray had to cut back on her involvement in baseball, but said she couldnt stop coaching the Tigers. She is looking forward to seeing female participation in the sport develop. I only coached theoretically during the season and played a couple of innings here and there when I was feeling up to it, Gosstray said. I just tried to stay involved. Its been a hard 12 months but Im looking forward to next season. Im also going to Melbourne this weekend to play a couple of games. I dont know how Im going to go because Im still very much recovering but it will be great to pull on a uniform and a glove, and get to play in a proper womens competition. Baseball NT has just formed the inaugural womens competition to kick off next month. For more information contact Baseball NT on 8927 4788. Girls ready to play ball MORE than 120 indigenous girls representing 12 schools will come together for the annual Indigenous Girls Basketball Competition at the Darwin Basketball Stadium today from 9am. The event will feature 21 teams from as far afield as Katherine, West Arnhem and the Tiwi Islands, and for the first time competitors will travel from Barunga and Numbulwar. Tasmania on top of SA SOUTH Australia will need to break a Bellerive Oval record to beat Tasmania after Tigers Ed Cowan and George Bailey smashed 100s on day three of their Shield match. Dismissing the Redbacks for 260, the Tigers then piled on the runs in their second innings before declaring at 2-300 to set the Redbacks a victory target of 402. South Australia was 14 without loss at stumps, needing a further 388 to win. SCORECARD Tasmania 361 (J Faulkner 77, G Bailey 69; P George 4-112, D Christian 3-73) and 2(dec)-300 (E Cowan 134no, G Bailey 114no) v South Australia 260 (M Klinger 86, A OBrien 51no; B Hilfenhaus 4-60, L Butterworth 3-45) and 0-14 (D Harris 9no,M Klinger 5no). Cutting gets Bulls back QUEENSLAND quick Ben Cutting set up an intriguing final day in the Sheffield Shield clash at the Gabba. Cutting (2-4) chopped down the Blues top-order in fading light to have them 3-24 at stumps chasing 224 for victory. He dismissed Simon Katich in his firstinnings return of 3-54 on Wednesday and backed up to do it again yesterday. Earlier, after taking control with a 66-run opening stand between Wade Townsend (41) and Ryan Broad (23), Queensland slumped to 5-99, including a 4-14 collapse after lunch. But captain James Hopes steadied with 72 from 84 balls.
