IN an extraordinary gamble Australia is set to pick a 28-year-old debutant with no Sheffield Shield matches under his belt for the Test against the West Indies.

    IN the last week we’ve seen two Tests finish without reaching the fourth day, yet only one of the pitches has been slammed by the cricketing public.

    LEADING trainers Danny O’Brien and Mark Kavanagh, along with Dr Tom Brennan, have all pleaded not guilty to knowingly administering cobalt to several horses.

    A RACISM row hit ESPN when anchor Robert Flores took a stunning shot at colleagues suggesting they promoted a harmful double standard.

    FORMER New Zealand cricket captain Chris Cairns has been cleared of perjury and perverting the course of justice in a UK court.


    Full-bore rifle

    Full-bore rifle shooting uses 7.62 or 5.56 calibre target rifles, shot over distances from 300 metres to 900 metres.

    The range is located at Grantville on the Bass Highway. Shooting is held from about 12.00pm on Saturdays.

    Contact Rod Gray on (03) 9822 2827 for more details.

    Full-bore Target Rifle shooting became popular in the mid-19th century, where it was closely associated with patriotism and The Queen's Prize.

    Some of the traditions remain, but todays target rifle is at the forefront of precision technology and todays succesful shooter maintains their physical well-being, alertness and most importantly, mental control in peak condition.

    Entry to the sport is through Rifle Clubs which provide basic training, practice competition and social interaction for the recreational shooter.

    The MCC Rifle Club has a current membership which includes recent under-25 and veteran members of Australian teams and has rifles and equipment available to introduce newcomers to the sport. We shoot on Saturdays at the Grantville Range at distances from 300 to 900 metres.
