First Todd Greenberg, now David Gallop to join cricket officialdom

It also builds on an increasingly well-connected and highly credentialed cast of Sydney-based cricket officials at Cricket NSW and the players association, who have been unofficial allies in seeking more transparency from the Melbourne-based national governing body.

While the ACA now has Greenberg, president Shane Watson and influential director Neil Maxwell as major decision makers, Gallop will join a powerful Cricket NSW board fronted by former Credit Suisse Australia boss John Knox, the man whose phone call triggered David Peever’s resignation in 2018. Maxwell, who has been a prominent player agent for stars such as Brett Lee, Mike Hussey and Pat Cummins, is also a director at Cricket NSW, who will now have Baird to do its bidding on the CA board.

NSW and Queensland Cricket, the two state associations who last year pressed for a shake-up of the way the sport is run, are likely to resume their bid for an overhaul of the game’s administration now that the international season has been completed.

CA’s controversial recommendation for Big Bash League teams to stop referring to January 26 as Australia Day may embolden that campaign.


The move was strongly opposed by NSW and the South Australian Cricket Association, whose president, Andrew Sinclair, was publicly scathing of the decision.

Like Greenberg, Gallop was a first-grade player in Sydney, opening the bowling with Geoff Lawson for the University of NSW in the mid-1980s, and his family has an even deeper connection to the game. His father, John, was a long-time chairman of ACT Cricket, whose first-grade one-day competition is named after him.

Gallop, whose son Tom has also played first grade in Sydney, had briefly expressed interest in the ACA job that Greenberg ultimately took but withdrew early in the process.

A Confused Todd Chrisley Trying to Use His New Tools Will Make You LOL – E! Online

Chrisley knows…tools? Not so much.

E! News has an exclusive sneak peek at tonight’s brand new episode of Chrisley Knows Best. The hilarious preview finds Todd Chrisley attempting to help son Grayson build a soapbox car with a brand new set of tools and tool belt.

“I have to tighten it up ’cause my waist is so small,” Todd boasts while fastening his belt. “Does that look OK with my shirt? I mean with the drill and this tool belt I feel like I could be a member of The Village People.”

“What’s that?” Grayson asks.

“I may have never built a soapbox car, but I know I look hot in a tool belt,” Todd adds in his confessional before wife Julie Chrisley asks, “OK, just have a question: what’s in the tool belt?”

“A bunch of stuff that the guy at The Home Depot taught me about,” Todd replies. “I don’t know what they’re called, but I got ’em.”

A fourth man has been arrested in connection with the 2019 death of Murray Bridge man Oliver Todd.

Mr Todd, 47, was reported missing from his home about 10:00am on Wednesday, December 11, 2019.

Police officers located his body in an open area of land at Jervois, about an hour east of Adelaide, that evening.

He was remanded in custody after appearing in the Mount Gambier Magistrates Court today.

The development follows a 30-year-old man and a 49-year-old man — whose names and images have been suppressed — being arrested and charged with murder on December 12, 2019.

Detectives then arrested a 41-year-old Murray Bridge man on March 26, 2020, in connection with the death.

He was charged with impeding an investigation and two counts of providing a false statement, SAPOL said.

NRL 2021: North Queensland Cowboys, Michael Morgan, Shoulder injury, Squads, Todd Payten, Jake Clifford

Michael Morgan is set to line up in North Queensland’s season-opener against Penrith in an incredible turnaround after a routine shoulder operation went horribly wrong last year.

Morgan has struggled with the added leadership and responsibility at the Cowboys and needs to have a big season in 2021 if he is to help take North Queensland back to the finals.

North Queensland underachieved again last season despite a few key additions to their squad while Morgan was restricted to just six NRL games after a complication from a shoulder operation.

Todd Carney engaged to MAFS star Susie Bradley, proposal Instagram video

Todd Carney and Susie Bradley are engaged after the former NRL star pulled off a surprise proposal during the gender reveal for their baby.

Carney, 34, showed off his romantic side after first kicking a football that exploded in a shower of blue powder.

He produced a ring from inside his shorts and bent down on one knee, telling Bradley: “I got something else exciting too. Since it’s going to be a little boy, it’s only fitting we all have the same name. Will you marry me?”

Bradley, who failed to find love after appearing on a season of Married At First Sight, appeared truly stunned as she willingly accepted the ring and kissed her beau.

Carney posted the moment on Instagram, writing: “We all have dreams and in 2020 all mine have come true. In 2021 my greatest gift is going to happen with a little Todd on the way and I’ll marry my best friend.”

There had been speculation the two were planning to tie the knot after Bradley referred to Carney as her fiance on social media in October.

After her ill-fated marriage with barista Billy Vincent on the hit Channel 9 show, Bradley was spotted out in public with Carney as early as March, 2019.

Carney shot into the NRL spotlight as a 17-year-old; however, his career was derailed by a series of off-field incidents that saw him sacked from Canberra and released by the Sydney Roosters before the infamous bubbler incident at Cronulla saw him ultimately exiled from the NRL.

Carney, who now lives on Queensland’s Gold Coast where he works as a concreter, says he’s found peace in his life and wants athletes across the country to learn from his mistakes.

The on-again-off-again couple got back together at the end of 2019, prompting cosmetic nurse Bradley to defiantly address their critics.

“Pretty sure it’s been no secret that Todd has effed up in the past,” Bradley wrote. “I’ve also made quite a few disastrous mistakes.

“But guess what? We own them and we’ve worked through them, and that’s up to us, so go us, we’ve come out the other side of it.

“Please keep your f***ing opinions to yourselves. If you can’t respect my relationship, go away, please, otherwise I’ll just block you, and that’s so time-consuming.”

Bachelorette Australia: Bachie Adam Todd leaves no stone unturned in date with Elly Miles

He may be a self-confessed nerd who studies rocks for a living but The Bachelorette’s Adam Todd thinks that will set him apart from the sea of hipsters in the mansion.

“I’m a bit of an oddball, I do things a bit differently,” he told AAA.

His alternative charm has hit where it matters most and Todd, 24, who grew up in Victoria before moving to Perth scored that all important one on one time with Elly Miles.

“I’m a bit of a shy guy and to get away from the big personalities in the house, that’s my chance to get that quality time with her,” Todd said.

Shy or otherwise, in true Bachie form, it wasn’t long before he showed he takes a holistic approach to geology in the form of his rock-hard abs.

“This is a massive opportunity that I’ve been given so I’m going to use that time to show her who I am and ask her those big relationship questions,” he said.

He admits, after their hot date at the zoo, he’s falling for Miles.

“There’s definitely something building with Elly and I want to keep working on that connection,” he said.

“I came into this … to find love … I really want to give it a fair crack.”

Making Todd Mall bright again


Up to 20 big, colourful works of street art will soon counter the Mall’s graveyard atmosphere of empty and shuttered shops, now including Inside Ormiston Gorge by Cecilia Price, adorning the facade Tourism Central Australia (pictured).

The artist, who has been a resident of Alice Springs for almost 30 years, has travelled extensively throughout remote Australia and developed her artistic skills to embrace watercolours, oils, and a wide range of other mediums, says Red Hot Arts in a media release.

Her painting joins the likes of Mervyn Rubuntja, Melanie Gunner and Alison Hittmann in brightening the streets of Alice Springs as part of the Revitalise Alice Street Art Project.

Alice Springs is already home to over 60 public artworks shown in an interactive Public Art Map plotting the locations of paintings, sculptures and installations across town.

Todd Sampson Body Hack best travel stories

When it comes to immersing himself in different cultures, Body Hack host Todd Sampson has no limits.

I got my first passport… At 17 (my Canadian one). I got my Australian passport at 30.

My first holiday memory is… When I was a kid we couldn’t afford to have holidays as Mum and Dad worked year-round. My first memory of an actual “holiday” was at university. I went to Mexico City for a week and got robbed at gunpoint just outside a bank.

I’ve been to… 39 countries. I’ve travelled to 19 in the past four years filming Body Hack.

My favourite place in Australia is… Ningaloo Reef, WA. I’ll never forget swimming with the whale sharks with my young girls.

The place I’d love to visit in Australia is… The Simpson Desert. It’s one of the harshest places on earth, with most of it uninhabited. My kids would love it.

The thing about travel I’ve missed during Covid… Seeing the girls adjusting to a foreign land.

If there was a Covid vaccine and borders lifted tomorrow, the first place I’d go is... Home to visit my dad in remote Canada. Then Africa with the family.

Swimming with whale sharks at WA’s Ningaloo Reef is something Todd will never forget. Picture: Tourism Australia

The place I’ve visited most often is… Africa. It’s the womb of humanity. I’m trying to get the dust of Africa in my girls’ shoes.

The place that most surprised me was... Mosul, Iraq. Completely destroyed by war, but totally alive with culture. I filmed an episode of Body Hack there during the war.

The place that didn’t live up to expectations… Hawaii. I don’t get it. It’s like an over-commercialised beach holiday and, considering we have the best beaches in the world, it makes no sense to me. That and I don’t like water.

The advice I’d give to young travellers is… Never argue with someone carrying a gun and take probiotics a week before and after every trip

My holidays are mostly devoted to… Adventure. Last year we went to Namibia and stayed in a lodge in the middle of nowhere. One night our tent was surrounded by lions. I think they’d seen my young kids earlier in the day and were coming back for dinner. It was scary exciting.

The sickest I’ve been on holiday… I’ve never been sick while travelling.

The most interesting person I’ve met on a plane is… When I flew to climb Mount Everest, I sat next to a monk who had just come out of20 years of isolation in the mountains.


The place that most surprised Todd was Mosul in Iraq. “Completely destroyed by war, but totally alive with culture,” he says.

The souvenir I always buy… Neomie, my wife, buys local dish towels (weird, I know).

The worst thing that happened to me while travelling… I had frog poison burnt into my arm as part of a ritual deep in the Amazon for Body Hack. That little green frog nearly killed me.

The best/weirdest things I’ve eaten while travelling was… Baboon. They’re 97 per cent human, which, from a psychology point of view, made it taste weird. I also watched a cannibal eat a human skull in India (in a previous episode of Body Hack). I chose not to join in on that one.

My go-to dish for room service is… Fish and vegetables.

The best hotel I’ve stayed in… Ngorongoro Crater Lodge in Tanzania. Elephants ate from our window while a Maasai warrior stood guard.

The travel tips I’d share are… Carefully observe the locals. The answers to most questions can be found in them.

Travel has taught me… Acceptance and non-judgement of that which is foreign.

AFL trade news, Western Bulldogs rumours, whispers 2020: Todd Goldstein, Ben McEvoy, Daniel Talia

The Western Bulldogs must target a ruckman and a key defender from rival clubs to fill two crucial list chasms, according to Herald Sun reporter Jon Ralph. And three veterans could be the answer.

Minutes after his side’s thrilling elimination final loss to St Kilda on Saturday night, Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge hinted his club wouldn’t be “idle” during the trade period, suggesting his best 22 would “change significantly” come Round 1 next season.

Beveridge said too many players were below their best against the Saints – something they couldn’t afford to do considering the “vulnerabilities we have in our side”.

The coach highlighted that “our forwards didn’t get ourselves into the right spot and didn’t compete well enough in the air”, while he added ruckman Tim English was” still a few years off his absolute best” as he pondered whether the idea of acquiring a rival, ready-made ruckmen would be wise.
