40 SPORT SUNDAY AUGUST 22 2021 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 SYDNEY has charged into the finals with a massive 21.10 (136) to 6.13 (49) win over the Gold Coast Suns at Marvel Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Lance Franklin led the way with an equal-season high six goals to help bring up the Swans biggest score of the season. And it ends another disappointing campaign for the Suns (5-17). Franklin booted a trademark long-range bomb on the run from outside 50m in the first 20 seconds to get the Swans off to the perfect start. Franklin booted his second with three minutes remaining in the first term as he inched closer to 1000 career majors. Buddy on that famous arc wheels and goes and gets his second (goal) and hes only got 12 to go, Saints great Leigh Montagna said on Fox Footy. FULL STORY: P36 Buddys big bag of goals BEN COTTON RACING returns with a more local theme to it, with an eightrace card at the Winnellie Park greyhounds on Sunday night. There is plenty of quality and depth to the program and some nice in-form greyhounds including a promising up-ancomer called Good Bye Vince from the Adam Poulter kennel. The son of Mepunga Blazer came to Winnellie Park as a maiden and has won five of his nine starts in Darwin. Poulter has his team really firing at the moment and he has a host of other chances across the evening including the consistent Aeroplane Rose in race two which is for the open sprinters. Another in-form trainer is the Group 3 Darwin Cup winning, Andrew Lasker. He is looking for some more success with his runners in Uno Slipper in race one, Villa Park in race five and his Cup-winning champion in Mighty Marshall in the nights last race. First race is 7.12pm NT time. Cup star with a few top hopes GREG ALDAM BLUES BATTING SENSATION FINDS HIS SANCTUARY IN TOP END P33 ITS STILL NOT TIGERS TIME Is another big loss the end for Maguire?
