Australia v Peru – The Socceroos have qualified for their 6th World Cup after Andrew Redmayne’s bizarre antics on the goal line secured the ‘win or go home’ victory. Redmayne was brought on as a substitute keeper for the penalty shootout after no goals were scored in regular and extra time. The shootout ended at 5-4 and Redmayne produced an iconic celebration with teammates after the save. The Socceroos will play France in the Group stages of the World Cup beginning in November.


Brisbane v St Kilda – The Brisbane Lions have claimed top spot on the AFL ladder in a scrappy affair against St Kilda on Saturday night. Joe Daniher booted 3 opportunistic goals and Lachie Neale led all comers with 37 disposals in a game that is sure to land him some Brownlow votes. St Kilda battled hard all night and took a 12 point advantage into half time but were ultimately no match for the Lions as they ran away 21 point victors. The Lions score line of 10.18 is something coach Chris Fagan will no doubt address over the next two weeks as they enjoy their bye round.

Collingwood v Melbourne – The wheels may not have completely fallen off at the Demons however things are certainly looking shaky. With plenty of off field drama to contend with, Melbourne have dropped their 3rd straight game after winning their first 10 to start the season. After dominating the first quarter, Collingwood were able to wrestle back momentum after quarter time and slowly wear down the minor premiers before kicking away late in the final quarter. Premierships are not won in June, however Melbourne have plenty of areas to address as they approach a much needed bye weekend.

The Stradbroke Handicap – Background stories do not come much more interesting than Alligator Bloods and he has added to his colourful history by taking out the Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm on Saturday. Given the perfect ride by Tim Clark, he stormed home down the outside to beat an unlucky Private Eye and gallant Rothfire, neither of whom enjoyed the sweet run that the winner did. Adding to the remarkable story was trainer Gai Waterhouse landing her 150th Group 1 win and first ever Stradbroke Handicap as a result of Alligator Blood’s impressive run.

Turnovers again told the story for Boston, recording 10 more than the Warriors. The Celtics also shot 67.7% from the free throw line the 10 point loss.
