MILLER PADS UP AGAIN
FORMER Wendouree batsman Sam Miller pads up again for South Australia in the interstate one-day competition at Bankstown today.
The Redbacks face Tasmania in their second match.
Miller, 25, top scored in SA’s loss to Victoria.
He made 47 off 67 balls in his one-day debut for the Redbacks.
Miller played in three Sheffield Shield matches last season for a total of 66 runs.
AFL TRADE TABLE
DESPITE speculation, Hawthorn dual premiership player and best and fairest Brad Sewell’s future is no clearer.
It emerged yesterday that the Hawks had put the veteran on the trade table.
Adelaide utility and former Ballarat Miners basketballer Ricky Henderson was another who had been mentioned in despatches about a possible move, with Collingwood reported last night to be showing interest.
However, the Crows are stating Henderson is a required player.
SMYTHES Creek’s Emma Stewart is locked in a see-sawing battle at the top of the Victorian harness racing trainers’ premiership.
Sunraysia-based Shayne Cramp regained the frontrunning with wins at Mildura last night.
He is on 19 - two more than Stewart, who has her 17 wins from 50 starters.
Stewart gets another opportunity to add to her tally with Metro Mike at Kilmore tonight and eight runners at Melton on Friday night.
