McKinnon blasts ‘disgusting’ Smith

Melbourne have defended Cameron Smith after Alex McKinnon described as “disgusting” the Storm captain’s on-field comments about the incident that ended his NRL career.

Speaking to Channel Nine’s60 Minutesprogram, which airs on Sunday night, McKinnon has described Smith’s on-field actions after the tackle as “f—ing ridiculous”.

He believed comments Smith made on the field at the time implied that he was somewhat to blame for the injury.

“If he doesn’t duck his head, that doesn’t happen,” Smith was heard telling referees.

McKinnon said he was still angry with Smith and said he had not heard from him since the incident.

Melbourne on Sunday released a statement saying Smith had no idea of the extent of McKinnon’s injury when on the field and had attempted to contact the injured player several times afterwards.

The Storm also pointed out that Smith had helped launch the Rise for Alex fundraising NRL round last year and that Melbourne had raised $20,000 for McKinnon on that match day alone.

Smith refused to comment at Queensland training on the Gold Coast on Sunday ahead of Wednesday night’s State of Origin decider in Brisbane.

“At the time of this tragic accident, no one on the field had any idea of the severity of the injury Alex had suffered,” the Storm statement said.

“All at Storm and especially the playing group were shocked and horrified to learn of Alex’s injuries in the days after the event.Storm players led by captain Cameron Smith requested to visit Alex in hospital numerous times while he was in Melbourne.

“The requests were declined, which was totally understandable given Alex needed to focus on the initial stages of his recovery.

“Storm’s football director continued to liaise with his Newcastle equivalent regarding the right time for club players to contact Alex in the weeks and months after the incident.”

The Storm said Smith tried to support McKinnon by launching the Rise for Alex campaign with NSW counterpart Paul Gallen last year.

“Cameron Smith was proud to launch the #riseforalex round last year alongside Paul Gallen, as well as to wear Alex’s jersey number at Storm’s game in Melbourne in the same round,” it said.”Storm’s fans raised more than $20,000 for Alex that day alone.”

Fairfax sports columnist Danny Weidlersaid Smith will be under particularly intense pressure as he goes into the Origin decider on Wednesday night.

Weidlerwrote that Smith is a smart and well-respected player, who misread the McKinnon situation, and will have a tough time explaining his behaviour.

“His conduct on the field have left the [McKinnon] family upset – it is not going too far to say that the family and Alex have dealt with their feelings when it comes to Jordan McLean, the player who made the tackle,” Weidler wrote.

TweetFacebookIT IS the recognition they richly deserve.

On Saturday, hundreds of service men and women from across the army, navy and air force marched on Civic Park as part of the 2015 Reserve Day March.

The march, which was addressed by Tim Fischer, the chairman of the Australian Reserve Forces Council and former deputy-prime minister, has run in cities across the country since 1988, and attempts to raise the profile of reservists.

Marching beside the reservists on Saturday were the 14 members of the Hunter-based Australian Armed Forced Re-enactment Heritage Unit, who will, next month, travel to Malaysia to mark the 70th anniversary of the infamous Sandakan death march.

Secretary Richard Kieida was part of the 60th anniversary ceremony in Malaysia in 2005, and said it was an honour to be invited back for the 70th anniversary ceremony on August 15.

He said the Sandakan Death March was the “single worst recorded atrocity against Australia soldiers” during World War II.

In late 1944, as the allied forces advanced, the Japanese sent 2000 Australian and British prisoners on a 260 kilometre journey along jungle tracks to Ranau.

The prisoners were weak and sick, and many died on the way.

Residents who were caught helping the prisoners were tortured and killed, but Mr Kieida said the Sandakan people “risked their lives to provide food, water and intelligence” for the soldiers trapped in prisoner of war camps.

Two prisoners of war who survived the death camp will return to Sandakan for the event.

“We feel that this campaign is a significant part of Australian’s military history, but it is a campaign that is seldom spoken about and does not receive the same level of public recognition as other events, such as Gallipoli,” Mr Kieida said.

The unit, which numbered 54 when it was founded in 1995, conducts ceremonial duties during war anniversaries and Anzac Day services when the Australian Defence Force or cadet units cannot participate.

It operates to make sure the sacrifices Australian soldiers made are always remembered.

Uni pride on the table

CSU team captains Mathew Dunn and Olivia Patterson help launch the games at the MTC.
Nanjing Night Net

IT’S just as much about forging friendships off the field as it is chasing the coveted bragging rights on the field.

The Eastern University Games, officially launched at the MTC last night, will see 3000 students from 22 universities compete in 16 different sports.

For 22-year-old Olivia Patterson, attending her fifth Uni Games is all about chasing a medal and having fun.

The CSU Bathurst PE teaching student is CSU touch football and basketball team captain.

Australian Catholic University students Sam White, Emily Carroll and Nigel Price enter the games.

“It’s a big thing, everyone gets involved,” she said.

“There’s a lot of pride at stake.”

CSU’s330 athletes competing will share their campus with visiting teams over the next four days.

“I love it, it’s such an experience and you meet new people,” Miss Patterson said.

“As soon as you’re on the field, give it everything or don’t bother.

“We’re aiming for a medal in both sports.”

The 2014 champions, The University of Newcastle, will defend their title, but these CSU students are hoping tocapitalise on their home ground advantage over the next four days.

CSU squash and ultimate frisbee team captainMathew Dunn, 21, is chasing his second gold medal at his sixth Uni Games.

“Looking at the draw, I’m hoping for a medal,” he said.

The Leeton import, who studies Agricultural Science at CSU Wagga, says the event provides students with an opportunity to meet people they may not meet otherwise.

“It’s good fun,” he said.

“You’re meeting so many new people.”

It is the largest team CSU has ever submitted.

The Eastern University Games are the largest of the three regional university games events to be held simultaneouslyand will bring in an estimated $1.8 million in visitor expenditure to the local economy.

The games are being held in partnership with Destination NSW, Charles SturtUniversity and WaggaCity Council.

“Waggais known as the City of Good Sports and the Games are the fourth major sportingevent we’ve hosted this year, which is a testament to our fantastic facilities and our community’ssupport for sporting events,” Mayor Rod Kendall said.

The Eastern University Games act as a qualifying competition for the Australian University Games,which will be held on the Gold Coast fromSeptember 27 to October 2 in selected sports.
