SPORTS 26 CRICKET : Paul Fitzpatrick reipors on England defeat m Adelaide M vvV?: A setback biit -.not a Master England's defeat by 32 runs against Sbulfc Australia at Adelaide Oval yesterday, was disappointing, It is the first time the State have beaten the English since they crushed Arthur Gilligan's men by 10 wickets in 1925. Had it come at a more advanced stage of the tour it would have been disturbing. With praiseworthy exceptions, England neither batted nor Bowled impressively, but it was. as Mike Brearley, England's captain, said afterwards a " setback rather than a disaster.' It was wise to keep a sense of perspective. The England party are entitled to a little time to make Packer's man states the terms Andrew Caro, the managing director of Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket, yesterday put the onus on the game's traditional rulers to restore peace to international cricket. Caro, speaking in Auckland after the first WSC match outside Australia, between a World and an Australian .XI, said coexistence between his organisation and the International Cricket Conference, would only come when the ICC were prepared to accept the existence of a second, commercial organisation. "Negotiations are still going on between ICC and WSC but the accommodation between i he two bodies will only come when ICC want it to," Caro said. Commenting on the last formal meeting between the two sides in July when negotiations broke down over WSC's apparent ambition to organise cricket for ten months of a year, Caro said that WSC had made proposals " purely to start the ball rolling." He said RUGBY UNION : David Frost Horton back in reckoning Nigel Horton of Toulouse and Robin Cowling of Leicester, who both played for England at the start of last season's international championship campaign, have been picked to play for the Midlands in their match against the All Blacks at Leicester on November 18. They must have hopes of being included in the England team to play the New Zealanders at Twickenham the following weekend. Horton, who had to return home from the Lions' tour of New Zealand last year bacause of a broken bone in a hand, played for England last season against France and Wales but then lost his place at lock to Maurice Colclough of Angou-leme. Cowling severely damaged a shoulder in last season's France v. England match in Paris and could not be considered .for the rest of England's matches. His place at loose head prop went to Barry Nelmes of Cardiff. The England team to meet the All Blacks is due to be announced on the Monday morning after the Midlands match, so that the national selectors will welcome (his rare opportunity of observing the form of Horton. who still Jives and works in Toulouse. French colleagues say he had been playing well without-dominating proceedings. Cowl-ing has played in all Leicester's games this season. Barrie Corless, the England centre who has been troubled by a hamstring injury this season, was not considered for the Midlands match because he has so far played only one match for Moseley since his injury. The Midlands side includes eight internationals, Scots mete out tough suspensions The Scottish Rugby Union has reacted strongly to the recent escalation of misdemeanours on the field by handing out a total of 248 weeks in suspensions to 41 players. In a letter from the Union to all full member clubs some details of the suspensions are listed and a warning is given of possible action against clubs from which a number of players have been sent off. What that action might be is not stated but the Union could impose fines, deduct championship points in certain cases or perhaps even suspend a club's fixture list for variable periods of time. More impact, however, would have been given to the union's disciplinary measures had they named the players who have been suspended. The longest term is of 30 weeks, understood to have been handed out to a . junior player. It does seem wrong RESULTS . Soccer FOOTBALL COMBINATION Crystal Palace 1, Oxford Utd 1.

But the lesson is clear, Brearley has absorbed', it, -ahd is keen to propound , it " If anyone was fetaining any lingering feelings that it was not going to be hard they will not be retaining them now.1' he said. Yesterday's play was first disheartening, then : exciting, developing an expectancy that somehow seemed unlikely to be fulfilled. South Australia, indeed, would have been that WSC had never envisaged taking over- world cricket for ten months, it was purely an optional idea. Meanwhile on the pitch a blistering spell of fast bowling by Dennis Lillee, backed up by Max Walker, sent the World XI crashing to defeat by 167 runs against the Australian XI on the third day of the four-day match. Lillee had match figures of 12 for 89. The Australians, 193 for eight overnight, had added only three more runs to their second innings, the New Zealand pace, bowler Richard Had-lee finishing with five for 26. However, the World XI, needing 252 for victory, were quickly in trouble against Lillee who had taken seven for 59 in the first innings. The South African Clive Rice, with 15, was the only high order batsman to reach double figures as his side slumped to 38 for seven. Hadlee (21) and John Snow (16) brought some respectability to the score before Lillee, with five for 30, among them Martin Cooper, the stand-off half, who is paired with Chris Gifford, the England B player. The team to represent the South-west against the All Blacks at Bristol on November 15 includes two players, Barry Nelmes and John Scott, who have already played against the New Zealanders for Cardiff. Inevitably in this part of the world where the Bristol and Gloucester clubs seem to produce so many players of quality, the selection of this team is controversial with the omission of such players as Peter Butler and Paul Winnan from full back, Richard Harding from scrum half, and Nigel Pomphrey from the pack. It remains a strong team which should gave the All Blacks plenty to think about. The All Blacks, whose midweek match this week is against Ulster at Ravenhill today, may be without their first-choice scrum half, Mark Donaldson, for their international against Wales at Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday. He twisted an ankle near the end of the international at Lansdowne Road last weekend, and yesterday he was on crutches with orders not to put any weight on that foot until tomorrow. He has had to withdraw from his position as substitute scrum half for today. Ulster, keen to follow Muns-ter's example of last week and so becom the second Irish provincial team to beat a New Zealand side, will field four internationals. Alastair McKib-bin, who was to have played on the wing, broke a bone in a hand in last Saturday's international and has been replaced by Chris Gardner of Queens University, who toured New that this man, and others who are perhaps not from fashionable clubs, should have their identities concealed while others, like the Scotland prop Norman Pender, who is suspended for six weeks, find their names inevitably leaking into print. Up to the last Saturday of October a total of 57 players had been ordered off. Sixteen cases have still to be heard. The Union is extremely concerned that this number compares .unfavourably with the total of 31 sent off in the corresponding period last season. In their letter to the clubs, the SRU point out that these incidents have .brought the game into disrepute. The letter goes on: "The SRU Committee is seriously concerned about this unacceptable face of Scottish rugby and re-affirms its determination to stamp down on foul play and , unsporting behaviour at every (Lancashire) beat D.

The problem, however, cannot be eliminated by referees and the emergency committee alone. " Responsibility for. achieving that end rests also with players, coaches, officials and members of all clubs and in particular selection committees. The committee therefore insists that clubs must ensure that their players play at all times in the true spirit of the game and within the laws, and take strong disciplinary action against those transgressors whose actions have escaped the attention of referees. "The situation will be reviewed at regular intervals and if ' there is no dramatic improvement the emergency committee will have to consider imposing even more severe penalties and, where necessary, taking action against any club from which a number of players have been sent off."

No" sooner Had Gower reached , a mature half-ceritury than.', he : flashed ' at "Sin-cock and Blewett clung to a stinging slip catch. Batting on this . final day was possibty more exacting than at any time in the game. There was heavy cloud, and the ball swung appreciably more than previously. There was, though, no excuse for the desperation that followed Gower's dismissal. Miller, Taylor and Edmonds departed swiftly with Brearley watching sternly from the other ' end. Brearley, like Gower, looked much more de pendable ', the second time; , round but then shattered any remaining illusions of stability by attempting to take a run that did not exist. He paid the inevitable consequence. At that stage it seemed unlikely that England would extend the contest beyond lunch, but at the interval Old and Lever were fashioning an unlikely victory. It was of course too good to last : it always is. Hogg, appropriately since he has been the most potent force of this match, bowled Lever soon after lunch and Old's lively resistance ended when he lofted Sleep to wide mid-on. A stand of 68, compiled largely without concern, had nevertheless put South Australia's resources into perspective at last. This, after all, is the weakest State in the country at present. England will not harbour too many happy memories of tnis game, although four ciitscening days were not without compensations. Boycott and Gower already look to be in re- TENNIS Mrs Jones After the excitement of the Wightman Cup success lawn tennis came back to normal with the return of the Sla-zenger family tournament to its original home at the Palace Hotel, Torquay yesterday. The popularity of the move back from Bournemouth was proved with a greater than ever entry of some 170 contestants spread over eight events catering for all ages with the main open singles sandwiched between the Junior and Over-45 singles. It proved once again the need for this type of tournament as distinct from the wealthy Grand Prix circuits. Torquay, the training ground of such players as Angela Mortimer, a former Wimbledon champion. Sue Barker, who hit the winning shot against America in the Wightman Cup, and Mike Sangster, still has the pull to bring back those who have retired from the main tournament scene. Yesterday, we had Ann Jones, the 1969 Wimbledon champion, and Winnie Wooldridge, a former Wight-man Cup player, displaying winning skills yet again. Mrs Jones has lost little of her old flair as Kay Reeve, a Warwickshire colleague discovered when she had to count success in points and not games. Mrs Jones won 6-0, 6-0, dropping only, five points in the first set and six in the second. It was one sided to say ICE SKATING : Sandra Stevenson Winner puts on a show Experience and - age proved their worth in the final round of the Richmond Trophy event last night as Sue Driano of Italy, at 21, the eldest of the 19 competitors from 12 countries, eclipsed her . rivals. Briano had led after the initial section and her coach, decided that because she had a good margin, she should attempt everything in her repertoire. - Her four minute routine included moves such as the split double lutz and reverse head back spin, neither of which are attempted by any other woman skater in the world. In spite of a fall on a triple salcow jump after a successful triple toe loop, Driano earned nothing less than 5.4 , and the Norwegian judge thought she deserved a 5.7, only three tenths of a mark short of the maximum. This was at least two tenths of a point above her rivals. Second was Currie Bugh (US), who demonstrated superb c h o reog r a'p h y and beautiful style but whose exhibition lacked technical content; One of. the beaten skaters ' described her, presentation as "elegant puffery." . , A huge roar of applause IFIXTURES Soccer (7.30 unless stated) LEAGUE CUP FOURTH ROUND.

It ,was a bit rough on Miss Bouda, but at least she showed improvement in the second set and undoubtedly learned a lot from such a skilful opponent. One returning son did not fair so well.

Warboys later admitted he was nervous on his ' returp after such' a long absence. He has put coaching behind him with a new zest to play competitively again.

" I'm worried particularly with the national champion ships only tnree weeKs away, said Richardson, "I'll really have , , to practise hard." Richardson, from Stahmore, Middlesex, had hoped to land a triple salchow but her bout with- multiple chicken pox and bronchitis which had kept her off the ice until recently, had sapped her strength. When she came to attempt the jump she could not find, the power to attain the necessary height. Cottrill, at 16 three years younger . than Richardson, skated exhuberantly, and successfully landed , a triple jump but'- failed another. The most disappointed competitor was Heather Kemkaran.

He was speaking to the conference of the. Central Council for Physical Recreation at Bournemouth, and. his. remarks followed last Thursday's statements by the Scottish Sports Council urging governing bodie.-. to reject tobacco sponsorship. Mr. Howell referred to the sponsorship recently undertaken by State Express, the cigarette brand, which has offered a number of sports financial rewards for the winning of specified competitions. He said : " It's for every sport to .decide for itself whether it wishes" to participate in the event, and make sure its individuals also want to participate."'

Ilurphy is expected to take the job if Notts County, with whom he is assistant manager, agree to his release. The problems a manager can face were highlighted yesterday when Bobby Robson of Ipswich described as "out of order" the action of Eric Gates, his 24-year-old midfleld player, in leaving the club and Mr Howell said he was opposed to ' discriminating against smoking. ; ""You are being asked to make a valued judgement against one substance, which is supposed to be harmful ' which I believe it is against another, and I find myself in the greatest difficulty choosing between smoking or drinking or gambling." The Scottish Sports Council had urged' the government to increase , its support to sport, obviating the' need to seek sponsorship elsewhere, but Mr Howell made it clear such an increase in subsidy would not be forthcoming. " It's no good arguing that we don't want tobacco , sponsorship, but " that we want the Sports Council or the -Government to' make it up that is not oh-4t's a piece of delusion."
