Rugby

Coopers Premier League

Round 9 of the Coopers Premier League served up scores equivalent to the drubbing Australia’s Super Rugby teams are suffering across the ditch. Burnside trounced Woodville 62-14, Onkaparinga did the same to Elizabeth 62-21 and Southern Suburbs rounded out the trifecta against Adelaide University 62-15. The closest game was Old Collegians win againstg Port Adelaide 54-26. Brighton is sitting top of the ladder with Burnside and Southern Suburbs nipping at their heels mid-way through the season.

Women’s Senior League

Scores were more even in the women’s comp, with a tight game between Barossa and Brighton seeing the country women winning 45-38. Adelaide Uni beat Southern Suburbs 36-12, while Burnside defeated Woodville 28-0. Old Collegians ran away from Port Adelaide 37-5.

Cycling

The Adelaide Track League returned to the Gepps Cross velodrome on Friday night for a round packed with action from juniors to the elite.

The Women’s Olympic Track Endurance team hit the boards for a final hit-out before heading to Brisbane for the last weeks before the trip to Tokyo. The crowd was entertained with a Women’s Madison and a fun inclusion of an Elimination race that included the winner of the first sprint earning a ‘get out of jail’ token to use if they found themselves at the back of the pack in a subsequent sprint. The track nights have brought crowds back to the velodrome.

Lacrosse

The State Men’s League saw Sturt beat East Torrens Payneham 12-4 and Brighton take down Woodville 11-7. Top of the ladder Glenelg had a bye, while no score was recorded online for the Burnside vs North Adelaide clash.

The women’s league returns on June 18.

Equestrian

The Australian Vaulting Championships are scheduled for September at the picturesque facilities of Danson Dressage in the Adelaide Hills. The three-day event will showcase the athleticism, grace and artistic expression of vaulters from around the country.

“Vaulting SA is excited to invite you all to the gorgeous Adelaide Hills for the 24th Australian Vaulting Championships, running from 23rd – 26th September 2021,” according to event organisers.

“After the disappointing decision to cancel the Championships in 2020, we are even more determined to hold an excellent event in this year.

“We are looking forward to giving the Australian vaulters a chance to compete against others from different States and push themselves to do their best. It is also a great opportunity to catch up with past friends and create new friendships.”
