The Wallabies front rower was forced off the ground in last Saturdays clash with Melbourne. Officials were happy with the way he recovered, but were taking a cautious approach given his history of head knocks. Sheehan, Stannard to stay WESTERN Force scrum halves Brett Sheehan and James Stannard have re-signed for another Super Rugby season. Sheehan, a former Wallaby with three Test caps, has started every game this season while Stannard provided back-up from the bench. Sheehan notched four caps for the Reds and 46 for the Waratahs before moving to Perth for the 2010 season. Stannard starred for the national sevens in the World Series and the Commonwealth Games. Saints reach Euro Cup final NORTHAMPTON set up a European Cup final against Leinster after notching up a comfortable 23-7 victory over Perpignan on Sunday. The Saints will now face the Irish province 32-23 winners over Toulouse on Saturday in the final at Cardiffs Millennium Stadium on May 21. Tries from England full-back Ben Foden and centre Jon Clarke, allied with three penalties and two conversions from Stephen Myler, were enough to outclass Perpignan.

The Northern Territory riders had struggled so far in the series, but finally tasted success with Simone Montgomerie coming second to complete a Territory quinella. Leading Centralian apprentice Belinda Carlile was stranded without a runner after Messi Magic was scratched in the morning, but Angel, Montgomerie and Alana Brown were left to represent. With Alcarntspell setting a hot pace, it opened the door for a back-marker to run on and Cristambul didnt disappoint. The Lisa Lefoe-prepared gelding worked strongly into the race, beating home Montgomeries mount Magistrates Court with Talamagne in third. The horse travelled well the whole way, he pulled himself into the race and let me know when he wanted to go around them, Angel said. Simone (Montgomerie) won this race last year, but its the first time a Territory jockey has won in this series. Its good to be able to break the drought. The win gave Angel in dentured to Darwin trainer David Jupp her 10th Territory victory and the 20th of her career. The final race of the National Apprentice Series will be run at Morphettville in Adelaide later this month.
