Looking both ways

Local sport from the past, to the present and into the future.
Nanjing Night Net

Last week we saw how the Queanbeyan Tigers went through bumpy times and set about rebuilding to again savour success.

In the late 60s and early 70s the next generation of youngsters, Marion Borkowski, Renato Res and Ziggy Prykle had their impact and the Hopkins boys and Van Rakowski followed not long after.

The efforts of these teams provided a foundation for the Tigers more recent successes that followed as the club grew.

New names such as James Black, Tony Wynd and Paul Quade (as coach) helped to lift the club and attract new players and talent. The team went through tough times but by the mid 80s entered what the club describes as the ‘Grand finals years’ making the Grand Final 5 times, winning 2. Follow up success continued into the 90s and following 2000. Last year 1st grade were again the Premiers.

The Tigers teams today include early age groups where boys and girls play in integrated teams; older age group teams for boys that can lead them to senior grade teams; and teams for girls that can lead to senior women’s competition. In fact the Queanbeyan Tigers women’s team won the premiership in 2014.

We are Ishmael: Cricki Leaks captures its white whale

SLEEPING BEAUTY: Ryan Sinclair, fitting in some preparation before he goes out to bat.TO paraphrase perennial underachiever George Costanza – “we’re back baby, we’re back”.
Nanjing Night Net

Cricki Leaks will never apologise for anything – ask Ned Morrish, we provide a public service – but after an extended hiatus we do feel like we owe our fans an explanation.

Rumours were abound Orange cricket of a legend, drifting through Orange committing cricketing atrocities but always flying under Cricki Leaks’ radar.

Not anymore.

We searched, and we hunted.

While Cricki Leaks was absent from these pages he became our white whale – unable to be caught, and determinedly inscrutable.

He even took to boasting about his ability to remain out of Cricki Leaks’ watchful eye.

“They can’t get me, I’m untouchable,” he reportedly quipped to his teammates.

But after several long weeks, this desk succeeded where captain Ahab could not. We caught our white whale.

His name?

Ryan Thomas Sinclair.

There are few cardinal sins on, or on the sidelines of, a cricket field.

Wearing the wrong cap, shirt or pants is one, as is falling asleep at the ground or dropping a catch for a five for or a hat-trick – Sinclair’s committed all of them this season.

While sporting pants of pale fuschia after washing his whites with his lucky red pantaloons, the Laurie Daley look-a-like has become Orange City’s very own Sleeping Beauty.

In fact this desk is convinced Sinclair is completely nocturnal, so rarely is he sighted awake during the day.

Sinclair continuously channels his inner narcoleptic to fall asleep anywhere, and everywhere on the sidelines of Orange cricket fields, often asking to shift further down the batting order in a bid to catch some more zeds.

We’re fairly certain he also waits for the kiss of a Prince Charming – we hope it’s Mick Corby – to awaken him in time to bat.

But it was Sinclair’s most recent game where Cricki Leaks finally nailed its target.

After showing up to the ground wearing his old club’s shirt, and claiming “it doesn’t matter what shirt I wear, I’ll still take five wickets”, Sinclair regularly flouted skipper Shaun Churchill’s orders.

He did not bowl to his field, taking just one scalp, but then did the unthinkable. He dropped a catch on a hat-trick ball.

Showing all the tactical nous of a jellyfish Sinclair once again disobeyed his captain, who requested he stay where he was at square leg, instead deciding short leg was more appropriate for Paul Flitcroft’s hat-trick ball.

Naturally, the batsman clipped the ball off his pads straight through Sinclair’s splayed out hands before landing, you guessed it, in the exact spot Churchill requested he remained.

At this point we, you stand and applaud the one, the only, Ryan Thomas Sinclair.

Canberra woman threw shoes, spat at police

A CANBERRA woman will have to complete 120 hours of community service after spitting and throwing her shoes at police while under the influence of alcohol.
Nanjing Night Net

Tabisa Biech Makoi, of Light Street, Manuka, appeared at Queanbeyan Local Court this week facingfive counts of assaulting an officer in the execution of duty and one charge of refusing or failing to comply with direction.

Magistrate Michael Antrum described the accused’s behaviour as “disgraceful”. She repeatedly cursed at police and assaulted three different officers while being arrested.

“The language you used on New Year’s Eve was disgraceful, that sort of language isn’t acceptable anywhere…there were families there and kids. You were using the Fs and the Cs and throwing them around as if you were on a ship or somewhere,” he said.

“[Police] have enough to do on New Year’s Eve without you engaging in this disgraceful conduct.”

The incident occurred on January 1, 2014 while the woman was celebrating New Year’s Eve at Bondi Beach.

Police approached Makoi, 22-years-old, after they witnessed her in the middle of an altercation with a male.

She was directed to move on and warned about her offensive language. Her friends tried to take her away but she threw her shoes at the police, according to court documents.

Makoi was arrested and while being walked to the cage truck swore and spat at officers. Her saliva hit one officer in the eye and another one on the back of their police vest and down their right arm and hand.

The woman continued to be uncooperative kicking the door onceshe was secured in the cage truck and then refusing to get out of the truck whenthey arrived at the station.

While officers tried to get her out of the truck, she struck one and spat again.

Once in the charge room she was verbally abusive and violent. She was not afforded the opportunity of an interview.

Makoi told the court she was under the influence of alcohol during the time of the incident.

She was ordered to comply with a nine month good behaviour bond and to pay a $110 fine in addition to the 120 hours of community service.
