6(0 The Sydney Morning Herald Monday, November 14, 1988 Sport W abie o acK in th lunt tor lest EDINBURGH, Sunday: The shrill sound of the huntsman's horn and the cannon-like boom of liuodreds of galloping horses reverberated through the rolling hills high above the Hawick Rugby ground yesterday. The hunt for the fox was on. . Qown in the valley the members of Jthe Australian Rugby team were somewhat more subdued, talking quietly among themselves and carefully preparing their game plan to cover all escape roirtes in their hunt for the red and white striped South of Scotland opponents. Different methods and different results. About 100 riders accompanied by a river of yapping hounds pounded across the lush lowlands of the majestic Scottish Borders. But the fox proved to be far too smart and happily trotted off over the horizon while the horses went in the opposite direction. The Australians, also hunting in packs, opted for a more subtle approach and stalked their prey before going for the jugular. By the" end of the game South of Scotland were only a skeleton of their former selves. The Australians' success went beyond the lopsided scoreline, the uncharacteristic jolly after-dinner speeches and the breast-beating. Fop the players it was the first major indication that they might have an edge over Scotland in the Te$t at Murrayfield next Saturday. Australia's inspired effort, involving five tries and the best combination of forward and back play of the tour, should force widespread changes to the Test team. .fter the faultless efforts of all th$(players on Test trial Acura Niuqila, Lloyd Walker, Rob Law-ton, Damien Frawley, Ewen McKenzie and Scott Gourley coach Bob Dwyer may make as many as six changes to the team who lost to England 28-19 last weeTc. Lawton is expected to take Mark HartilPs loose-head spot, Gourley Julian Gardner's breakaway position and Niuqila James Grant's wing position. And the inclusion of Walker at inside-centre now appears a formality. Walker's slow midfield play has been widely criticised, one Scottish commentator suggesting that someone needed stamina more than pace to get around him. But yesterday Walker exhibited the bal skills and football brain that have made him one of Sydney's most creative club footballers. He may not have been always at the head of the charge, but he was usually nearby. He instigated numerous successful backline moyes, cover-defended perfectly and,manufactured breaks. Dwyer was quick to praise the centre after the match and said he had, been the standout performer of the game. But that comment understated the. performances of the Australian back-row of Jeff Miller, Steve Tuynman and Gourley, who had beefi busy chasing down Scots all afternoon. "Everyone knows that I have a lor 'of faith in Lloyd Walker," Dwyer said. "But he did a great job always fighting for it, taking it up and doing all the hard work. I don't think he is the best player in ' 1 GREG GROWDEN ON THE WALLABY TOUR AUSTRALIA 29 SOUTH OF SCOTLAND 4 the world but he is a hell of a long way from the bottom." Walker, it must be remembered, has been given ample opportunity to prove his worth. Yesterday's match was his sixth on tour; Stephen James, in contrast, has played only three. But Australia's secret was their forward play: it was effective and tight. Farr-Jones received good ball from the line-outs and had time to properly start second- and third-phase ball, while the backs had enough space to try something different. The game followed the usual trend: Australia comfortably winning the line-outs (on this tour they have won ihe jumps 1 73-1 1 0, topping the count in all nine matches), while being slaughtered in the penalty count. Irish referee Stephen Hilditch penalised the tourists 22-9, including 10-3 in the second half. The tour tally is now Australia 102 penalties, opposition 137. The Wallabies' proper use of the line-out ball, won primarily by Steve Cutler, came as a refreshing change. They showed the required fire with Cutler and Tuynman taking out their aggression on the opposition with effective forearm jolts when infringed. Australia fully deserved to be 23-0 ahead at halftime after well-crafted tries by Niuqila, Gourley and David Campese, who left the field in the 30th minute with a slight groin strain. South of Scotland, whose defence and commitment was at times flimsy, improved in the second half and only rigid defence from the Australians kept them from scoring. The Wallabies came close to achieving a complete shutout until replacement winger Grant made a mess of retrieving a South kick. He fumbled the ball and virtually handed it to winger Doug Robeson to score. Dwyer said he was pleased with the overall effort. "The performance of many of the young guys today has put the pressure back on some established members to perform on Tuesday against North and Midlands," he said. "They now know they must do a lot of good things on Tuesday to stay in contention for a Test spot. It was also pleasing that Nick Farr-Jones was able to play his natural game today, possibly for the first time on tour, as he received good service from his pack." The taste of victory is among the Wallabies again. AUSTRALIA 29 (A Niuqila S Gourley 2. D Campese tries: M Lynagh pen goal 3 goals) bt SOUTH OF SCOTLAND 4 (D Robeson try). Crowd: About 7.000.

Tombs odd man out in Test warm-up EDINBURGH, Sunday: Queensland centre Richard Tombs is the only Wallaby who will miss out on the chance to impress Australian selectors before the Test against Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday. The selectors, who announced their side today to play North and Midlands at Dundee on Tuesday, have tried to give all the 31 members of the squad one last opportunity to push their Test claims. The team to play North and Midlands basically comprises those who did not play in Saturday's 29-4 win over South of Scotland at Hawick. However, because of the odd number in the squad and the addition of an extra back in Michael Lynagh, one had to miss out. That fell to Tombs, who after a quiet start to the tour improved markedly in the victory against Edinburgh last week. Instead the selectors opted for ACT's Paul Cornish to take the inside-centre spot. After the great show on Saturday, the pressure is on several of the established Test players to perform to their full potential against North and Midlands, or they will find themselves in the grandstand on Saturday. "Hunger and fear have become great motivators in this team," Australian coach Bob Dwyer said today. "Hunger for some, and fear for others who are worried about retaining their Test spot." The team is: David Knox, Paul Carozza, Brad Cirvan, Paul Cornish, James Grant, Stephen James, Brad Burke (vice-capt), Tim Gavin, Julian Gardner, David Carter, Rod McCall, Bill Campbell (capt), Andy Mclnryre, Tom Lawton, Mark Hartill. Reserves: Nick Farr-Jones, Michael Lynagh, Richard Tombs, Mark McBain, Rob Lawton, Jeff Miller. In Cardiff, Wales ran in five tries to beat Western Samoa 28-6 at a near-deserted Cardiff Arms Park but it was far from an impressive performance by the home team. Although they had most of the possession, Wales constantly made errors and not even captain Jonathan Davies could provide the inspiration they so badly lacked. The Samoan forwards showed up the Welsh with their mobility and ball-handling skills. e , J " " ., J sv r V :2? v"vf 4g r-2R -.'-.r; -i'.''f .!-" ,""7. " ; . . . . Bonner has his eye on world title Scottish-born Jim Bonner, who has sight in only one eye, is Australia's No 1 player in the world amateur snooker championship which begins at the State Sports Centre at Homebush today. But Bonner's good eye is his left and, as he is right-handed, his cue alignment is close to the body with less room for the "wobble" which afflicts "natural" players (the majority) who are not opposite-eyed. The late Joe Davis, undefeated world professional champion, was a right-hander who relied heavily on his left eye, having only partial sight in his right. And the equally great Walter Lindrum, a left-hander, favoured his right eye when low over the cue. Photographs of Sir Donald Bradman at billiards, a game he enjoyed, show the great right-hander with a preference for sighting with the left eye. The resultant compact stance leads to truer cueing. And batting? As host for the snooker championship Australia is allowed three entries. Bonner's teammates'1 are the Victorians Stan Gorski, runner-up in the Australian championship with top break of 1 16, and David Collins who beat Peter Hawkes (Victoria), the championship reserve, in a playoff for third. Bonner, also Australian champion in 1985, is seeded 12th in a round-iobin group headed by the England No 2, Steve Ventham, SNOOKER LES WHEELER the No 5 seed and a regular on the "non-professional" UK circuit. Assuming that Ventham qualifies for the knockout section (top 16), Bonner's hardest to beat for the second position may be the vastly experienced Ron Jones, 45, runner-up in the Welsh championship. Gorski drew the group headed by No 4 seed Geet Sethi, the Indian who set a world amateur record break, the maximum 147, in retaining his national championship, and the No 13 seed, Paul Doran, the Northern and All-Ireland champion. Collins also has a tough task to qualify against 1985-86 world champion Paul Mifsud, of Malta, the No 3 seed, and Gay Burns, seeded 14 but perhaps Ireland's most accomplished representative. In their opening matches on Monday, Bonner should beat Rene Dikstra (Netherlands) at 7.30 pm, Gorski will at least strike Sethi "new" at 4 pm and Collins should beat Latif Mawazalali (Kenya) at 4 pm. Light tables will be used for the first six days, with sessions at 10 am, 1 pm, 4 pm and 7.30 pm today and 9 am, 12.30 pm, 4 pm and 7.30 pm on the other five days. Admission is $5. Jim Bonner . . . turning a handicap to his advantage. Maltese maestro has carved a sound image i Paul Mifsud, the Maltese snooker player in the world amateur championship, is so celebrated on the Mediterranean island that his statue has been erected in his home village, Zebbug. He is Malta's greatest cueman, past and present, and although seeded third at Homebush is by far the best-performed player in the field of 57. He is the only past winner engaged,' having won the championship in Blackpool, England, in 1985 and in Invercargill, New Zealand, n 1986 to add to his impressive performances in the event since 1972. To complete the picture, he is the only amateur to win world titles at both billiards and snooker, having taken the three-ball championship in 1979. Mifsud's opening match will be against Saymon Hamdan, of Brunei, in the 7.30 pm match today. Five straight wins appear certain before he meets Gay Burns, of the Republic of Ireland, at 7.30 pm on Saturday, the last of the six days of group round-robin competition. Burns has been the most consistent player of the season in the Republic and is favoured to qualify with Mifsud for th'e last 16 knock-out section of competition, beginning next Monday. He was unbeaten in Invercargill before losing to Mifsud in a semi-final. A new FOR THOSE of us not lucky enough to be in Adelaide for the Australian Grand Prix, there was at least some consolation to be had from watching it on television. One of the real delights of the Grand Prix circus is that Formula One fans get to listen to commentator Murray Walker. Walker is right up there with the ABC's Gordon Bray when it comes to having a great mind for trivia. His description of Austria's Gerhard Berger was breathtaking: "He is allegedly the man with the slowest heartbeat in Grand Prix racing." Walker's knowledge of the sport is undoubted, but occasionally his obvious enthusiasm for his job stops him from getting that knowledge across to the viewing audience. At one stage of the race yesterday as the leaders approached some particularly difficult corners around East Terrace, Walker said: "They're coming up to the twisty bits now." twist to f array s inte rminafol e trivia There's nothing like an expert commentary. Richards revered The adulation for West Indies' captain Viv Richards must be reaching the level accorded Sir Donald Bradman if yesterday's play in the West Indies-NSW match at the SCG is anything to go by. Richards scored his 100th first-class century yesterday. As soon as he reached the landmark many people in the crowd promptly got up and left. One of those seen to leave was champion New Zealand batsman Martin Crowe, a great admirer of Richards's talents. The Herald's cricket writer, the peripatetic Mike Coward, described the behaviour of the crowd leaving after Richards reached his century as similar to that when thousands would turn up to matches just to see Bradman reach another milestone in his batting career and then leave as soon as he was out. Of course it should not be HOURS construed from this that Coward is so old that he was actually there to witness such behaviour. He assures 48 Hours that somebody told him that's what they did. Geoff remembers it well A story in the Herald Jast Friday , about NSW cricketer Trevor Bayliss prompted an interesting letter from a reader and fellow-journalist, Geoff Allen. The story told of how Bayliss's maternal grandmother once played for the NSW women's team against a touring English side. Allen was at the match and said it was an interesting one indeed. Apparently a member of the NSW team was so nervous about playing the English side that when she went in to bat she appealed against herself for caught behind. Allen recalls that he was so caught up in the match that he tried to take up a position near the NSW dressingrooms in the old Sheridan Stand to get a better view of the action. Apparently a rather large policeman from Darlinghurst didn't think such behaviour was proper and threatened to arrest Allen for loitering there. Running into trouble ON TH E SUBJ ECT of cricket, when was the last time you saw a scoreboard such as the one for the Sheffield Shield match between Tasmania and Western Australia at Bellerive Oval in Hobart? Western Australia declared their innings closed yesterday when they reached 502 for the loss of only two wickets. Opener Geoff Marsh contributed 223 of those runs before being dismissed, Mike Veletta 157 and Tom Moody 1 12 not out. It looks like it's going to be a very long summer for the Tasmanian team. All is revealed . . HOURS CAN now reveal the reason 48 w hy John Burkett made a late and rather mysterious withdrawal from the Sydney Ironman contest at Bondi Beach a week ago. While competing in the board leg of the event Burkett, from Sydney's northern beaches, suffered the embarrassing misfortune of losing his swimming costume in the surf. Thankfully Burkett decided not to frighten the locals by continuing to compete in his state of dishabille. Instead 'he made his way discreetly to a quiet spot at the southern end of Bondi Beach and emerged from the surf with his competitors' singlet pulled down, over the wedding tackle. Shipshape snooker table YOU'VE REALLY GOT to hand it to the English when it comes to unashamed hedonism. A report in 77) Times, London, tells of two companies. Leisure Services International and ICI Acrylics, that have come up with a design for a marine snooker table. Yes, that's right. A marine snooker table. This wondrous invention uses sliding discs instead of balls and is played on a waterproof table. Apparently it is already in use in the Royal Navy and a hinged version is being worked on for use in submarines. Let's just hope the RN isn't too busy playing snooker if a war ev er breaks out.
