Time for umpires to step in at cricket in South Africa

IT IS time for the umpires to nip in the bud bad behaviour by players in international cricket.

Seems like some personal stuff stirred up Australian opener David Warner in the First Test in South Africa but he and the Australian captain should have reported it to the umpires and match referees rather than Warner blowing up in the tunnel.

There is too much agro in the world now and we are seeing it on our highways and streets in alleged road rage incidents as well.

How do we expect the general public to behave when we have cricketers like Warner and one of the South Africans going off in full view of the public via television?

Cricket was traditionally the gentleman's game but that description doesn't fit that well right now.

Race day

WARWICK Turf Club seems a bit like the No.14 in a rugby league team.

The club is usually the first asked when another club can't host a meeting and that will be the case this Friday when Warwick has a TAB meeting.

There are 123 nominations for seven races and admission is free.

Cardinal Cup

THE Warwick Redbacks Aussie rules team has plenty of support going on the number of sponsors to this weekend's Cardinal Cup in Warwick.

With the rain starting to clear and the ground in Jackie Howe Drive being well drained, we are likely to see a feast of footy this weekend.

While triple Holman Medal winner Brendan Iles works in Toowoomba, he lives in Warwick and is likely to play some games for the Redbacks this season.
