Australia Day clash for pride

IT’S Australia Day and that means there’s only one place for sports fans to be – Tyalgum.

Not only is there the ever-popular Tyalgum Cup cycle race (see below) to start celebrations in the morning, but there’s a feast of cricket at Wayne Bartrim Oval.

The 19th annual Australia Day clash between members of the local Australian and Indian communities promises to be a pearler, as the Australians look to improve their dismal record against their rivals.

In the event’s 18-year history, India has notched 13 wins to Australia’s five.

Australian pride goes on the line when the juniors clash this morning and the seniors from lunch.

Let the sledging begin.
