It’s Sam Kerr now, but remember the name Darcey Malone for next world cup

It’s Sam Kerr now, but remember the name Darcey Malone for next world cup

Darcey Malone may have been a bit too young for the current Matildas who are flying the Australian colours high at the FIFA women’s world cup in France. But the 15 year old football wizard, who has won the Wests Sports Council 2019 elite sports person of the year award, will be a very good chance of selection when the next world cup comes around in four years. That’s not as far-fetched as it sounds: Darcey Malone has already been named as a member of the junior Matildas for a qualifier in Laos and is working on cementing a spot… Read more »

The plan was to have French import Raphael Cousin make his debut for the East Campbelltown Eagles in the under 23s match on Sunday. However the weather intervened and heavy showers forced the cancellation of the lower grade match where the 21 year old Frenchman was to wear the Eagles colours for the first time. But when a first grade player pulled out of the team’s Sydney Shield lineup against Moorebank Rams at Waminda Oval, young Raphael was given a chance to play in the top grade for his debut. “He did really well, we are happy with how he… Read more »

Dragons bite the dust, but caravan moves on with Camden in the lead

The conditions at Harvey Shephard Field for the Camden and Thirlmere clash yesterday were more like the north of England than South West Sydney. The Rams came from behind to record a gritty 12-10 victory over the Roosters. Somewhere between round eight, the long weekend break and round nine, the first grade competition was reduced to eight teams with the unfortunate withdrawl of the Moss Vale Dragons. But as disappointing it is to see the loss of a great club, the caravan moves and the three games on the weekend offered up some excellent rugby league for local fans. Narellan… Read more »

Pat Richards key man for Wests

The song in grandma’s time said ‘‘you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone’’ and I have to admit that’s how I feel about Braith Anasta now. For most of the season a posse of Wests Tigers observers have been calling for Anasta’s head, because they felt he wasn’tRead more »

It’s Benji versus Robbie on Sunday

Predictably all the talk so far about Sunday’s NRL clash between Wests Tigers and St George Illawarra has centred on the face off between the old bull, Benji Marshall, and the young gun who took his spot, Luke Brooks. For Benji maybe this match is one he has been dreadingRead more »
