David Warner (54) powered New South Wales to the 8 wicket win. ByGREYMORRIS TACTICS: Russell Jeffrey Desperate Magpies climb over St Marys ContinuedPage 38 PALMERSTON re-ignited its NTFL season yesterday with a display of courage and desperation that proved too much for fierce rivals St Marys. On a day charged with emotion the Magpies took control of the game after half-time to beat Saints by 10 points and fly into third position on the league ladder. The 12.7 (79) to 10.9 (69) win came after one of the games of the season when players from both sides turned up the intensity one month before the finals. The scenes in the Palmerston room after the win resembled a premiership, though coach Russell Jeffrey was more concerned with harnessing the emotion and joy of the win as his side prepares for next Saturdays clash with ladder leaders the Tiwi Bombers. Sometimes it (emotion) can get the better of you, but if you can channel it in the right direction things like this happen, Jeffrey said in a packed Magpie room. I cant speak highly enough of my players, especially in that last quarter when we needed to find something. They did everything I asked of them. The Magpies were brilliantly led by ruck rover Jake Dignan on a day when a loss would have extinguished any hope of the double chance. Dignans ability to read the play and his precise delivery was crucial against a St Marys side possessed with a plentiful supply Ryans stand HARD WORK: Teenager Ryan Standish powered his way to a gold medal in Adelaide Centralian rides to Aussie gold and silver ByANDREWALOIA ContinuedPage 37 TERRITORY mountain biker Ryan Standish won his second Australian crown in as many years on Saturday. His latest win came a year earlier than he could have imagined. The 16-year-old Alice Springs rider dominated the national under-19 cross country title at Eagle Mountain Bike Park, South Australia, in only his second major event since stepping-up an age category. Last year he took the national titles by storm, winning the under-17 title on debut, but was given little hope of upstaging his older opponents at the weekend. He did that and more, completing the four-lap race in 1hr 23min 9.3sec to win by more than 90 seconds from New South Wales Mitchell Codner. Standish backed up yesterday to finish second in the short course cross country to Codner. Talk of such success was dismissed by the Centralians coach John Pyper, branding 2010 a developmental year. Standish knew it, but still had aspirations of at least scoring a podium finish. Yeah, its come way before I thought it would, Standish said. I was hoping for a podium, as you do. Of course I wanted to push for a win, but really didnt think I would be the one pushing the pace of the race and actually be up front to win it. The foundation blocks of victory on dirt in South Australia were laid earlier this month on the roads of Victoria, competing in the Jayco Bay Cycling Classic. It was the first time he ever took road racing seriously and attributed the experience to the dream ride he enjoyed on Saturday. I had a solid month of just riding and spending heaps of time on the bike, Standish said. Racing the Jayco Bay Classic was perfect for me. Road racing is great to get the legs rolling and get the heart going. The two weeks rest freshened the legs for this weekends racing.
