MONDAY NOVEMBER 8 2021 SPORT 27 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Becky Kay is a confirmed starter for the inaugural Karrie Webb Cup. A SILVER lining to the relative wipeout of major golfing events in Australia has appeared, with the inaugural Karrie Webb Cup set to be played in conjunction with the Australian PGA at Royal Queensland in January. The Covid-19 pandemic has left a black hole in Australian golf, with the mens Australian Open cancelled for a second year and the womens Open of 2022 also cancelled. But the mens PGA will start on January 13 in Brisbane. Honouring one of Australias most successful players, the Karrie Webb Cup will feature a limited 20-player field for the first running. The select players will be intermingled with the mens groups in the PGA, something never been done before. The Vic Open is one of the few events in the world to have men and women playing the same course at the same time, and for the same prizemoney. But men and women dont play together. Its hoped the event will grow beyond 20 players once there is nationwide clarity on quarantine rules. Gold Coast pro Becky Kay is locked in, with others to be confirmed. RUSSELL GOULD WEBB CUP A BOOST FOR GOLF Tigers boss brands AFL rule a flop RICHMOND chief executive Brendon Gale says the AFLs new stand rule will be judged as a failure that promoted uncontested circle work. Gale said the stand rule was unedifying because the defender stood passively on the mark in what should be a contested, in-your-face game. The AFL brought in its new rules including the stand rule after closely monitoring Richmonds brilliant efforts to guard the corridor while on the mark in the clubs successful 2020 premiership defence. But scoring went down from 2019s 80.7 points to 79.7 points (2020 involved shorter games) even if teams could move the ball from defensive 50 to inside 50 more smoothly. Richmond also had its frenetic tackling game blunted as rivals chipped the ball around and denied it the chance to apply its trademark pressure. With the man on the mark rule, teams rather than defend proactively in the middle of the ground and up the ground, they just folded back, said Gale, a former 244-game player. As a result, scoring has gone down again. Its harder to score as teams fall back. If the stated objective was to get the ball in motion, then the ball was in motion. But I saw a lot of games this year which were simply keepings off. If the stated objective was to score, well it hasnt worked. Teams want to control the ball because defences were flooding back. So the ball is in motion but its keepings off. Teams arent scoring. I just think the mere sight of players standing passively on the mark is unedifying. When you think of the nature of our game, its an active, on-your-toes, aggressive game Teams fold back and dont defend the ground. Melbourne conceded a score from 35 per cent of entries and it was the lowest of all time. Gale admits the league is unlikely to revert from its stand rule, with new football operations boss Brad Scott making clear he saw no need for intervention.

Stuart, who left Parramatta to coach the Raiders after the sacking of David Furner, has wasted no time stamping his authority on his new team, training them in 40C heat and sending them to aweek-long elite training camp. The former NSW and Australia coach has seen big potential for McCrone at hooker. Faith inMoses to deliver title MOSESWigness has taken over the reins again at Brothers Rugby League club for the 2014 season. Wigness, who coached the club for three years and won the 2010 and 2011 premierships, replaces Anthoiny Castro who had held the position for the past two seasons. The clubs seniors sign-on day is at Airport Tavern today from 1pm. Brothers spokesman John Adams said the clubwanted to regain the premiership that they lost to Palmerston last year. New rules to endmass debates MANLY coach Geoff Toovey says captain Jamie Lyon wont have to change his on-field approach to referees despite recent NRL rule changes. Lyon and Canterburys Michael Ennis are seen as two of the games leading debaters when it comes to arguing withmatch officials. But they are set to be stymied by a new law that limits where andwhen captains can speak to refs. Under new rules captains will only be able to speak to refs during a stoppage in play.

Lachlan schooled by Shark RUGBY LEAGUE ByDOUGBOOTH MacKillop Sharks centre Levi Russell with student Lachlan Miller at the merger announcement yesterday Picture: JUSTIN SANSON LACHLAN Miller wants to play senior rugby league when he grows up. The MacKillop Catholic College student discovered plenty of ways to help him reach that goal from the now MacKillop Sharks hardtackling centre Levi Russell yesterday. Lachlan, 13, and Russell, 22, were integral parts of the launch to merge the Sharks with the Palmerstonbased college. I like rugby league because of the teamwork that is involved in playing, said Lachlan, who has been playing the game for four years. It is not just a one-man game. I like running with the ball and scoring tries. Russell said young players such as Lachlan were the future of the 13-a-side game. We are looking for a premiership this season and building links such as this is vital for the future, he said. College principal Loretta Graham said MacKillop was trying to build a community spirit through sporting organisations and this was another step forward. David Graham is the Year 8 music co-ordinator at MacKillop but his other passion is rugby league. Growing up in Cairns, he played his first rugby league in Queensland and last year he was with the Palmerston Raiders. However, as the brainchild behind the merger of the school and club, he has new allegiances. The Palmerston demographic is much different to Darwin, Graham said. Queensland and NSW influence the culture. Graham said the merger would help provide a grassroots pathway that had not existed before in rugby league in the Northern Territory. It is important that we try and bridge the gap between school and club, he said. The Sharks will hold their senior sign-on at Mary MacKillop School today from 10am.
