FRIDAY MARCH 26 2021 SPORT 45 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA PERTH Wildcats will play seven games over the next three rounds of the NBL, and the message is simple from their coach: Keep them coming. It starts with a battle with the Illawarra Hawks at RAC Arena tonight. With the Wildcats now having won nine of their last 10 games, coach Trevor Gleeson said the more basketball the better. When youre playing a good brand of basketball, you want to keep playing as many games as you possibly can. When you have injuries, or youre out of form, you dont want to play, he said. Were playing a really good brand of basketball at the moment so the more games we can play the better. Brian Goorjians Illawarra Hawks will be looking for an improved performance against the Wildcats, after Perth comfortably beat them during the NBL Cup. Strangely, it was the only game of the Wildcats last 10 where Bryce Cotton (pictured) scored less than 20 points. In that time, he has averaged 27.9. Illawarra has won three of its last five, and Gleeson said you cant underestimate a Goorjian-coached team. They have two guys who can shoot the ball from half court in Harvey and Jessup, theyre really good. Adel is an NBA player, and then you have Frolling who is improving every game and Ogilvy who has been around for 10 years, he said. Theyre super talented, without a question, theyve done a really good job recruiting this year, and theyve got a pretty good coach too. Wildcats desperate to play on MASTERS rugby union is back on the agenda this weekend, with the sixth staging of the Masters 10s at Rugby Park, Marrara. A total of 14 mens sides in two divisions six in Division 1 and eight in Division 2 and five womens sides will play qualifying and finals matches from 10am on Saturday and Sunday. And in a first for the game played in heaven, deaf mens and womens sides from the Sydney and Canberra regions will be in Darwin for the tournament. All games will involve two eight-minute halves in Division 1 men, seven minutes in Division 2 and six minutes in the womens competition. Interstate teams include Mens Division 1 favourites, the Fijian Nadi Oldies from Sydney and the Wynnum Bugs from Brisbane, who are sending two sides to the Top End. The Fijian side contains a number of former internationals in a reminder to the rest of the competition they will be hard to beat over the two days. Masters 10s spokesperson Bruce Kennon said the tra ditional Friday Heineken Long Lunch at the Doubletree Hilton will set the scene for the next days on-field action. Seven-time Wallaby and Queensland Reds flanker Sam Scott-Young is the guest speaker for todays $170-perhead function in between several laughs from comedian Amy Hetherington. Scott-Young has been described as a combative and abrasive backrow forward who showed scant regard for reputation when locked in battle on the rugby field. The north Queenslander made his Test debut against the US in Brisbane in 1990, winning the man-of-thematch award with his fire and brimstone approach in his sides 21-9 win over the unsuspecting Americans. The two-day rugbyfest has $15,000 in prizemoney on offer for the top four sides in Mens Division 1. The winner will take home an $8000 cheque, the runnersup $4000, third-placed finishers $2000 and the fourthplaced side $1000. In accordance with tradition, all profits from the carnival will be directed to junior rugby union across the NT. Masters in focus as rugby hots up GREY MORRIS Darwin lawn bowler Trystan Smallacombe with his trophy. Picture: Bowls Australia DARWIN lawn bowler Trystan Smallacombe is the new Australian Mens Singles Champion of Champions. In the biggest win of his career, Smallacombe became the first male and second Territorian after Colleen Orr in 2017 to claim the prestigious title when he beat Queenslander Ben Walsh in the final game at Dandenong Bowls Club. His five wins from six matches means he will wear the green and gold of Australia as his countrys representative at the World Championships on the Gold Coast from September 7-19. Smallacombe set up his championship win with three wins on the opening day, including a 21-14 defeat of Australian representative and pre-tournament favourite Corey Wedlock. Originally from Western Australia, Smallacombe admitted to a big sense of relief and a good deal of shock when he beat stubborn Queenslander Walsh 21-15 to claim the title from Wedlock. That is the biggest win of my career, he told the NT News. I did win a five-a-side with Western Australia that was pretty special as well, but to win a national title against the best bowlers in the country is right up there. Smallacombe said the win over Walsh, who took their match right to the wire, had some nervous moments. He played really well, but I just had to keep calm and try and execute my shots when I could and hope he couldnt stay with me.
