Sports Talk – Rams Grand Final Day (22/9/18)

September 22 2018

Four Rams sides played in Grand Final action today.

Three of the four sides were Netball sides whilst the Rams Fourths attempted to bring home the Premiership for the Football Club.

Results of all four matches are below.

Rams Football Results

Fourths lost 6.20 – 56 to 0.0 – 0 vs Cobram

Rams Netball Results

A Grade lost 54 to 36 vs Moama
17 and Under lost 42 to 23 vs Echuca United
15 and Under won 45 to 33 vs Tongala

Conclusion

An undefeated Cobram gave the Rams Fourths no opportunities but the Fourths should be proud that they made the Grand Final and that had an excellent 15-3 season (17-4 if you count finals).

A Grade went up against a Moama side that had lost only once during the course of the year but the Rams went down trying and trying is what matters in a game.

It wasn’t to be for the 17 and Under side this year going down to Echuca United who went through the season undefeated.

The 15 and Under side had a comfortable victory with Eloise Ritchie winning a medallion for her performance, the side had a perfect 21-0 record for the season counting finals.

This may be our final edition of Sports Talk for 2018, we would like to thank everyone for reading each edition as the season progressed for both the Rams and the Rovers.

25 people answered our question “Are you looking forward to the Ute Muster?” and answers were pretty wide spread but it appears that while most aren’t looking forward to it they don’t mind it being around.

Sports Talk – Rovers Grand Final Day (15/9/18)

September 15 2018

Today was Grand Final day for five Rovers sides (Three Netball and two Football).

It seems like only yesterday that the season had started but in reality the season has come to an end and the clock is now counting down towards the 2019 season.

Below are the results of today’s matches.

Rovers Football Results

Reserves lost 6.4 – 40 to 5.7 – 37 vs Waaia
Fourths won 7.16 – 58 to 0.1 – 1 vs Katunga

Rovers Netball Results 

A Grade won 27 to 33 vs Tocumwal
C Reserve won 36 to 24 vs Waaia
15 and Under won 28 to 19 vs Picola United

Conclusion

Rovers Reserves gave it their best today, they were down by 29 points at three quarter time and kicked 4.2 to 0.0 in the last to make Waaia earn their Premiership whilst the Fourths were too good for their opposition today.

The Netball sides had a great day, after so many years of trying the A Grade side are now champions and they deserve to party like it’s 1999.

Tomorrow we’ll have Sports Talk with Rams results as they play their matches over this weekend and then next week we’ll have the Rams Grand Final Day edition of Sports Talk.

 

Sports Talk (9/9/18)

September 9 2018

Both the Rams and the Rovers played Finals this weekend with sides playing in either Semi Finals or Preliminary Finals.

Fourths won 7.11 – 53 to 3.4 – 22 (Preliminary Final vs Rennie)

Rams Netball Results

B Grade won 44 to 40 (Semi Final vs Echuca United)

13 and Under lost 22 to 8 (Preliminary Final vs Strathmerton)

Conclusion

Rams Netballers have their B Grade and C Reserve sides reach the Preliminary Final, unfortunately the season ended for the C Grade team though they should really be pleased that they made it into the finals and played well.

The Rovers Reserves and Fourths have both made it through to the Grand Final.

The Rovers A Grade, C Reserve and Under 15’s are all through to play in a Grand Final unfortunately the season ended for the 13 and Under side but they should be proud in the knowledge they were a Top Four side.

We’ll be back next week with a new edition of Sports Talk as we go through Rovers Grand Final and Rams Preliminary Final results.

Poll Time (5/9/18)

September 5 2018

We are back with four new questions for readers to consider and these questions cover a variety of topics.

  1. Should milk prices rise by at least 10 cents to help dairy farmers?
  2. Should water be taken from the basin plan to grow fodder for stock?
  3. Are you looking forward to the Ute Muster?
  4. Should there be an upgrade to footpaths, making them wide enough for bicycles, walkers and mobility scooters?

There are calls for a levy to be added to the price of milk, a levy would rise the price by at least 10 cents so farmers can get a couple of cents more for their dairy produce.

While the milk war has been good for consumers many feel that it is more than ok to pay a little more to ensure the survival of the dairy industry, what do you think?

Barnaby Joyce believes that water should be taken from the MDBP so farmers can grow some much needed fodder for their stock.

Political figures ‘slammed’ the idea from Australia’s new drought envoy with the Greens believing Barnaby is into destroying the environment, so it comes down to asking do you agree with taking the water or not?

The Ute Muster is coming up at the end of the month and there is always a variety of opinions on the subject, some wish it would go away, some aren’t interested but , some love the increase of business the event brings and some just like everything the event brings, what do you think?

Lastly we ask if the footpaths around town should be widened to allow for bicycles, walkers and mobility scooters.

Polls will run until Wednesday September 19.

August ends wet

September 1 2018

3.4mm of rain fell on Deniliquin over the course of the last day of August.

Weatherzone will report that 3.2mm fell as they count from 9am until 9am excluding the 0.4mm that fell between 8:50am and 9am and including 0.2mm that fell after midnight today.

The 3.4mm of rain was the highest daily total of rain for the month though the monthly total was roughly less than half of the average which was 33.5mm.

The rain did not all fall at once and hopefully that helped out local farmers when it comes to the land and also their water tanks as they would of received some much needed litres of water.
