ADRIAN WARREN: AAP
AUSTRALIAN Test cricket captain
Michael Clarke has paid tribute
to outgoing coach Tim Nielsen
and wants to have an input into
the selection of his successor, but
has stopped short of nominating a
Clarke arrived back in Sydney last
night after leading Australia to a 1-0
win in the three-Test series against
Sri Lanka, his first as skipper.
With a tour of South Africa looming
in less than a month, there is an
urgent need to appoint at least an
interim replacement for Nielsen.
Steve Rixon, Justin Langer, Tom
Moody and South African Mickey
Arthur are thought to be amongst
the candidates who’ll be under
consideration for the... Read more
No men no problems
A 40,000 crowd made up
entirely of women and
children watched a Turkish
league match yesterday after
sports authorities hit on a novel
way to deal with crowd trouble
at top-flight side Fenerbahce.
The match in Istanbul was
incident-free after men were
barred from attending; the
Turkish Football Federation
(TFF) said the decision was to
“to remind supporters of the
beauty and values of football”.

WHEN Geelong’s dual premiership
player Joel Selwood goes into battle
in Saturday’s AFL preliminary final,
even his brothers and parents will be
West Coast coach John Worsfold
says he’s planning to give Selwood’s
brothers, 21-year-old Scott and
27-year-old Adam, rotating shifts on
Geelong’s reigning club champion.
And Joel says his parents Maree
and Bryce Selwood are placing their
allegiances in the Eagles’ camp
because young Scott is yet to play in
an AFL grand final.
Adam has already tried to get under
Joel’s skin with a text message which
said: “We’re just one day closer to
smashing you on Saturday”.
Joel, 23, is doing his best to keep his
cool this week, on and off the field.
“No, I haven’t sent one. I’ve spoken
to him throughout the week, but he
does write a bit of rubbish and talk a
bit of rubbish sometimes,” the Cats
“I won’t get into that.”
Saturday’s clash will be the first time
three brothers have played in an AFL
final on opposing teams.
Scott Selwood is in cracking form
to take on Joel after his successful
lockdown role on Carlton superstar
Chris Judd in last weekend’s semi-
final win in Perth.
“I will cross him throughout the game,
I’m sure,” Joel said.
Scott was the leading tackler in the
2011 home-and-away season, so Joel
knows what’s coming his way.
But if Joel learnt any tricks from
his childhood days in Bendigo on
how to out-point Scott, he says he’s
forgotten all about it.
“It’s a long time since... Read more
Crows release player assessments
Mature age rookie Ian Callinan is
valued for his impact on team mates,
Patrick Dangerfield needs to improve
his ball skills and Kurt Tippett
needs to kick more goals – these are
the thoughts of Adelaide crows list
manager David Noble:
FROM Armstrong to Young, Noble has
assessed the performance of every player
on the Crows list in the club’s disappointing
The club has made the review public by
publishing it on their website.
The insight gives fans some background
into factors that held up some players and
options for next year.
Here’s the full list:
Tony resurrected his game towards the end
of the year. He played some outstanding
SANFL footy and then came in and played
at the same level with us. His reading of
the play and ball use was exceptional. He’s
certainly a player with some skill who can
help us move forward.
Ian Callinan (rookie)
Ian had a really frustrating year injury-wise.
What Ian has brought to the club with him
is an outstanding way in which he prepares,
and I think that’s rubbed off on the other
guys. He doesn’t leave anything to chance
and it’s just frustrating we... Read more
