Sternest test for Roos

SECOND-placed Wentworth return to the court today in SFNL A Grade netball at City Oval.

Coming up against the in-form Imperials, the Roos will need to be on their guard.

Strong: Courtney Wakefield has been in good form for Wentworth this season.

Wentworth have enjoyed a 2-0 start to the season with wins over Robinvale/Euston and Merbein.

Impressively, they have scored 120 goals over these two games, giving up only 52 at the defensive end of the court.

Courtney Wakefield has played well in her first two games this season for the Roos and will be called upon again to make an impact.

Imperials have a similar record after a tight first-up win against Irymple and a big 56-24 victory over Red Cliffs on Anzac Day.

Sarah Lansdown has been a key player so far for Imp­erials, appearing among the best players in both games.

So far, Imperials have been not as productive on the score­­board as Wentworth.

They have scored 90 goals and let in 60, although the close game against Irymple goes part of the way to explaining that statistic.

Both South Mildura and ­Robinvale/Euston return from a week off in a fifth versus sixth clash at Euston.

Robinvale/Euston have benefited from gaining greater depth this season, but are still gelling as a team and yet to win a game after two starts.

South Mildura have looked likely in parts but have one win and two losses from three games.

The Sydney bodyboarder took out both of his respective heats to get the upper-hand against Mitchell Atherton (Port Macquarie), Jack Rodgers (Lakewood) and Clay Murphy (Windale) who finished in second, third and fourth respectively. Both Rodgers and Murphy finished in the exact same position as the previous NRMA NSW Bodyboard State Titles event at Port Stephens.

On the beat: St George police ranks swell by four

Welcome to the force: New police recruits celebrated their graduation today. Picture: NSW Police.Four recruits have joined St George police as probationary constables.

They were among 109 newcomers who were welcomed into the ranks today, Friday, May 1.

The officers graduated with an associate degree in policing practice after 12 months of on-the-job training and study through university.

Commissioner Andrew Scipione congratulated the constables at an attestation ceremony at Goulbourn.

“These officers have worked to meet and exceed the physical and academic demands expected at the academy and today, they close the first chapter of their policing careers,” he said.

“As they start this next chapter, I wish every officer the best for their future with the NSW Police Force where they will experience great challenges and rewards while serving the community.

“They are not embarking on an ordinary career path and should expect to be challenged every day that they carry their badge.

“However, when we welcome new officers into our police family, it is an assurance they should never expect to face any challenge alone.’’

The new recruits will start work on Monday, May 4.

‘There is nothing better’

THE THREE WISE MEN: Paul Woolley, Rob Walton and Gerry Fitzpatrick were out to have fun in their brightly coloured suits. Picture: Laura HardwickThey call themselves the trio of good-looking blokes –but they are just here to have fun.

Years ago the three men –Rob Walton, Gerry Fitzpatrick and Paul Woolley –decided to surf the internet in search of the ultimate race day suit.

But the suits –made of cheap fabric –are sported atmore than just race days. They drag them out on every occasion they have a “belly full of tinnies”.

The idea is relatively simple: show up and be different.

The trio were among manypeople at Friday’s Wagga Gold Cup to dress wild and wacky.

“To be different and stand out is what everyone should try to do,” Mr Walton said,dressed in bright blue.

“We’re here to have fun. Some people talk, some people laugh, but it doesn’t really matter.

“I can’t understand why everyone doesn’t dress like this.”

Punters were out in force trackside to demonstratewho had the best outfit among the many thousands of possible combinations.

Under brilliant autumn skies there was a mixture of old and new clothes, with some spectators highlighting earlier this week they would opt for the op shop.

“It’s all about having a go,” Mr Walton said.

His friend Paul Woolley, of Dapto, said any occasion to come together –colourful or otherwise –was well worth it.

“We do this anywhere andeverywhere,” he said.“We’re all larrikans, don’t you worry about that. We relish the opportunity to get out of where we’re from –and what better place than to come to Wagga.

“You’ve got it so good here.”

Gerry Fitzpatrick was escaping a sudden deluge of rain in Sydney, where he hails from.

He said the Gold Cup and Wagga was the “perfect” escape from “graffiti-riddled, rainy” Sydney.

“We could have asked for anything better,” Mr Fitzpatrick said.

Like many people, the trio were headed for one of the city’s many hotels to celebrate the day over drinks before heading home in coming days.

Organisers were pleased with the attitude of people such as the multi-coloured trio.

The city and visitors took to social media in force on Friday to share their Gold Cup experience, with many hundreds of photos shared online.

The hashtag #WaggaGoldCup was a trending topic on Twitter in Australia.

An account that provides analysis of Twitter trends said more than 100 users made the Australian trend possible.

It is welcome news for the city’s leaders who have indicated event-based tourism will drive visitation rates into the future.
