Defeat in Christchurch tonight would extend Australias sorry losing streak to a record ninematches against their trans-Tasman rivals and hand the All Blacks Bledisloe Cup bragging rights for an eighth straight year. Scott shares second place AUSTRALIAN Adam Scott (66) putted nicely to earn a share of second place, two strokes behind American leader BubbaWatson after the opening round of the WGC Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in Akron, Ohio, yesterday. On a daywhen defending champion TigerWoods shot a shocking 74, Scott, 30, wasmuch more assured. Jason Daymanaged a one-under 69, Geoff Ogilvy carded a 71 andMarcus Fraser a 72, while Stuart Appleby shot a disappointing 74. Stormnotches first netball win A GUTSY Territory Storm produced their best win of the Australian Netball League season so far with a gritty 57-42win over the Canberra Darters in the ACT last night. The Territory jumped out to an eight-point lead at the first break but the Darters clawed their way back into the contest to be one goal down at the last change. The Territory Stormwill play NSW Waratahs tonight followed by NSWBlues tomorrow. Full report in tomorrows Sunday Territorian. OLYMPIC SPARTANS FOOTBALL CLUB Thursday 12th August 5.30pm, Tiwi Oval All new players welcome! For more info phone Nik: 0416 222 861 Training Commences e r0 6 0 6 1 2 Mandorah cycle ride set for tomorrow MORE than 250 cyclists are expected at the start line for tomorrows 146km Darwin to Mandorah fun ride. Dubbed a participation ride by Darwin Cycling Club officials, the ride has trebled in numbers in only its second year. The emphasis is definitely on fun and participation, club president Chris Loynes said. We encourage all the riders to ride at their own pace and basically enjoy themselves. Loynes said the fun ride was in line with big southern events like Melbournes Around the Bay in a Day, the Sydney to Wollongong ride and South Australias Tour Down Under. We had about 80 riders last year (2009) and were hopeful about 250 will be at the start line in Cullen Bay, Loynes added. The DCC has organised drink stops for the riders with assistance from the Berry Springs and Mandorah volunteer fire brigades. The race begins at Myilly Terrace from 5am tomorrow and proceeds along Tiger Brennan Drive, Wishart Road at Palmerston, Humpty Doo and the Elizabeth Valley Road. Tigers, Brothers battle it out for minor premiership THE heavyweights of the Darwin rugby league competition lock horns today in a blockbuster twilight game at Richardson Park. The top-of-the-table clash between Nightcliff and Brothers carries extra excitement given their barnstorming performances last week. The Tigers proved why they occupy top spot on the ladder with a 32-point thumping of Litchfield, while reigning premiers Brothers were healthy 12-point winners over Palmerston. Given there is only one point separating the sides at the top of the table, the 5.30pm clash is critical in the race for the minor premiership. The Dragons havent lost since Round 4 when they suffered a 38-6 loss to Brothers, and the onus is once again on the Brethren to stop their winning streak. Litchfield can stay in touch with the top two should it beat University tonight, but with the Sharks season on the line this match is expected to go down to the wire. Both sides have something to prove after suffering heavy losses last week and a win here will no doubt act as a confidence booster. Souths will be hoping to carry momentum into their 4pm clash with Palmerston after notching up their first win of the season last week against University. Francis Wapau and five-eighth Nigel Maher starred for the Rabbitohs, who waited 13 weeks before tasting victory. JESSWEBSTER Titans blow Eels away TITANS 34 EELS 12 GOLDCOAST 34 (MMinichiello 2, B Thompson 2, K Gordon,M Rogers tries; S Prince 5 goals) d PARRAMATTA 12 (J Hayne, J Reddy tries; L Burt 2 goals) at Skilled Park. Referees:Gavin Badger, Tony De LasHeras.Crowd: 19,568. Gold Coast second rower Anthony Laffranchi is engulfed by a sea of Parramatta defenders during last nights crucial NRL clash at Skilled Park. The Titans producing a stunning second half comeback after trailing 12-0 at half-time. Picture: Picture: ADAM HEAD NOTHING will make up for their shattering 27-2 finals loss to Parramatta last year. But Gold Coast may have got a measure of revenge with their stunning 34-12 comeback win over the Eels at Skilled Park last night. The Hayne Plane appeared to have reset his coordinates to the finals after the Parramatta fullback set up a 12-0 half-time lead for the visitors. However, Eels No. 1 Jarryd Hayne had the limelight ripped away as the Titans piled on six secondhalf tries to put Parramatta at risk of missing the top eight. Scott Prince was inspirational, picking himself up from the turf after a 46th minute high shot that landed Eels forward Ben Smith on report to help the Titans dominate the second half. In the second half, Prince set up tries for Mat Rogers and winger Kevin Gordon before video referee Sean Hampstead gave the green light to Bodene Thompson on the hour after he cleaned up a Prince kick. It was 28-12 after Mark Minichiello muscled his way over and Ashley Harrison snaffled up a Preston Campbell grubber. Besides Smith, Eels teammate Fuifui Moimoi was also placed on report for a swinging arm on Rogers. Broncos win, stars injured COWBOYS 26 BRONCOS 34 BRISBANE 34 (I Folau 2,M Gillett 2, D Lockyer, J YowYeh tries; C Parker 5 goals)d NORTHQUEENSLAND 26 (L Ah Mau, S Bolton, DHogan, T Williams tries; AGraham5 goals) at Dairy Farmers Stadium. Referees:BenCummins, Gerard Sutton.Crowd: 20,148. Darren Lockyer TEST halves Darren Lockyer and Johnathan Thurston both collected injuries as the Broncos downed the Cowboys 34-26 in a fiery derby in Townsville last night. Cowboys star Thurston hobbled off midway through the first half with a right ankle ligament strain. Brisbanes Lockyer retired clutching his ribs after 60 minutes in the six-tries-tofour victory. To cap another intense clash between the Queensland rivals three players were sin-binned and another placed on report in the first half in two incidents certain to be looked at by the match review committee. Bronco Josh McGuire was referred for a high shot on Anthony Watts, but it was the incident that erupted minutes later that will have the Cowboys sweating over possible suspensions. Maguire was penalised for working Cowboys centre Ty Williams in a tackle, prompting hooker Watts to rush in as third man in. While he wrestled with the forward, Cowboys teammate James Tamou joined in and landed a heavy blow to the side of his head. That in turn prompted the Broncos Sam Thaiday to fly in and throw a flurry of punches at the Kiwi prop. All three were sin binned. With two players in the bin and trailing 14-8, the Cowboys were unable to hold their line after the flare-up and the Broncos scored two tries to take a 24-8 lead into the halftime break.
