SPORT NEWS TIPS firstname.lastname@example.org THE $16,690 DRIVE FROM AWAY stylish NEW SWIFT AUTO GL Midweek round for Association netball THE Mount Gambier Netball Association will be playing a round tonight before taking the break for the long weekend. Zodiacs v Hobitz WITH some exciting games to watch it will be worth braving the cold to see the match of the round where Zodiacs will take on Hobitz. With both teams equal on points this game will have everything on show. Both teams will be hoping to continue their great on court performances of recent. Zodiacs defeated Saints on Saturday to maintain third spot and the side will need to produce some of the same plays to take second away from Hobitz. On court there will be exciting match ups including Hobitz’s Kym Stewart and Zodiacs’ Caitlyn Grubb, with both equal on fitness and ability, neither will give an inch and will fight it out to the final whistle. Last time these two teams met there was only five goals in it, once again it will be close and could go either way, predicting a two goal win to Zodiacs. Intruders v Amazons INTRUDERS will take on Amazons in the midweek round. Intruders have been improving every week and will look to get closer to Amazons this time having lost by eight last time. The squad will need to produce four consecutive quarters, under the on court guidance of Kristen White who was absent last week. Both White and Leanne Thomson will be guiding the side from start to finish. Amazons have been performing at a consistent rate of late and will need to step up to the next level to crack the top four. On court Amazons will be looking to Michelle McKenny for direction and guidance, her pin point passing into the goal circle will be unstoppable. Amazons goalies Chelsea Treacey and Amada Ellis have both been scoring at a high rate and will prove hard to beat for Intruders defence. Vicis v Saints THE final match of the night will starting at 8.30pm and Vicis will meet Saints. Both sides have versatility in the line ups, Saints defence of Megan Ridding and Rhiannon Primmer will need to be ready for anything from the first whistle to the last to keep Vicis to a low score. Primmer was absent the last time the two teams met and will put a different aspect in the Saints defence with her long reach and ability to pick off a lot of balls. Both teams have a solid midcourt and will be evenly match throughout the game. Vicis defence have been producing the goods game after game and will put immense pressure on Saints goalies. With Vicis having taken the win by 29 last time, Saints will tighten the margin but Vicis will still prove too strong.

Radical points changes for cricket CRICKET Australia will trial a new points system in the Bupa Sheffield Shield competition commencing with the 2014-15 season and West End Redbacks coach, Darren Berry is optimistic about the changes. The trial will grow and improve on work done with curators to ensure an even contest between bat and ball and better reflect Test conditions. “We still have to do our own analysis of the new points system, but things look promising at this stage,” Berry said. “I’m in favour for any change which will result in a more exciting brand of cricket, so it is excellent to see that there are incentives for quicker first innings’ and outright victories.” CA executive general manager of team performance, Pat Howard announced the two year trial that will see teams receive bonus points for runs and wickets in the first innings as part of a plan to develop players for the style and conditions of Test cricket. After consultation with curators, there were marked improvements in key statistical areas of the Sheffield Shield home and away seasons from 2012-13 to 2013-14. CA believes changes to the point system will continue that direction and take games deeper into the fourth day. In 2013-14, total runs climbed from 26,981 to 31,527, average overs per match went up from 288 to 336 equating to almost half a day of play. Runs-per-wicket rose from 27.28 to 33.10, centuries increased from 31 to 44 while spin overs increased by 58pc from 1767 to a 3025 last summer. Team performance iInformation manager and former Tasmanian Tigers head coach, Brian McFadyen led the points system review which involved analysis of domestic points structures worldwide and consultation with various stakeholders, including Australian team coach, Darren Lehmann. As part of the trial, teams will no longer be awarded first innings points, but will instead have the ability to gain points for scoring well or for taking wickets in the first 100 overs – the period when matches are often set up. A point will also be provided to teams that have the ability to fight for a draw. Revised Bupa Sheffield Shield points structure from 2014-15 season: Outright win: 6 points Draw: 1 point 1st innings win: 0 points Bonus batting: first 100 overs – .01 for every run above 200 in the first 100 overs Bonus bowling: first 100 overs – maximum 1.5 (0.5 points for wickets 5, 7, 9) Presentations for Sports Star Awards announced Friday PRESENTATIONS for Round 3 of the SportSE Sports Star Awards will be announced Friday with winners from throughout the Limestone Coast being recognised for their dedication and commitment to the sports and sporting clubs they love.

Awards coordinator and South East Local Government Association Star Club Field Officer Josephine Duigan said that range of sports involved are not necessarily the most mainstream, and smaller club members are working hard to achieve outstanding results. “It is becoming quite clear that there are pathways for some nominations to be forwarded to Sport SA for the State Awards which will be held in November in Adelaide,” she said.
