    FINAL TALLY OF ALL 43 NATIONS TO MEDAL Rank Nation Total 1 Australia 80 59 59 198 2 England 45 45 46 136 3 India 26 20 20 66 4 Canada 15 40 27 82 5 New Zealand 15 16 15 46 6 South Africa 13 11 13 37 7 Wales 10 12 14 36 8 Scotland 9 13 22 44 9 Nigeria 9 9 6 24 10 Cyprus 8 1 5 14 11 Jamaica 7 9 11 27 12 Malaysia 7 5 12 24 13 Singapore 5 2 2 9 14 Kenya 4 7 6 17 15 Uganda 3 1 2 6 16 Botswana 3 1 1 5 17 Samoa 2 3 0 5 18 Trinidad and Tobago 2 1 0 3 19 Namibia 2 0 0 2 20 Northern Ireland 1 7 4 12 21 The Bahamas 1 3 0 4 22 Papua New Guinea 1 2 0 3 23 Fiji 1 1 2 4 24 Pakistan 1 0 4 5 25 Grenada 1 0 1 2 26 Bermuda 1 0 0 1 26 Guyana 1 0 0 1 26 British Virgin Is. 1 0 0 1 26 Saint Lucia 1 0 0 1 30 Bangladesh 0 2 0 2 31 Sri Lanka 0 1 5 6 32 Cameroon 0 1 2 3 33 Dominica 0 1 1 2 34 Isle of Man 0 1 0 1 34 Mauritius 0 1 0 1 34 Nauru 0 1 0 1 37 Malta 0 0 2 2 37 Vanuatu 0 0 2 2 39 Cook Islands 0 0 1 1 39 Ghana 0 0 1 1 39 Norfolk Island 0 0 1 1 39 Seychelles 0 0 1 1 39 Solomon Islands 0 0 1 1 Well it was a pretty successful games all up. Australia back to topping the tally with our most medals since Melbourne 2006 and England winning less gold then we did in Glasgow 2014. In fact these games Australia won more gold then England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland combined. While ending the games with the disappointment of loosing the gold medal games of womens rugby 7's and the netball (moment of panic in rugby, panic and shocking coaching decisions in netball which should seriously be reviewed), there were some great moments like the Boomers and our performances in the marathons. Outside of the opening and closing ceremonies the Comm Games have been quite successful. And with Birmingham to host in 2022, all of Auckland, Christchurch, Edmont and Port Moresby expressing an interest in holding 2026, it looks like the Comm Games will be around for awhile yet.

Three gold in the boxing, Opals got the job done despite Cambage being ejected, both the mens & womens road races, the 10m platform in the diving, Kookaburras in the hockey, as well as the squash and table tennis. Highlight of the day was the finish to the mens basketball semi final NZ v Canada. If you can find it online thdn check it out! Today we've already picked up gold in the mens and womens para marathons, and we have big hopes in Jess Trengove + Michael Shelley in the able bodied marathons, Diamonds in the Netball, Boomers in the basketball and our womens Rugby 7's team. On a side note we've passed England'smedal tally from Glasgow 2014 while they trail ours from the same games. This is also our best Comm Games result since Melbourne 2006 so far. Hopefully the tide may be starting to turn for our results heading into Tokyo 2020 after two previous lackluster Olympics and 2014 Comm Games.

    Love those moments, no censors at a time of euphoria! Haha. TOP 10 MEDAL TALLY CURRENTLY ON DAY 10 Rank Nation Total 1 Australia 67 50 54 171 2 England 33 35 36 104 3 India 18 11 14 43 4 Canada 14 34 26 74 5 South Africa 13 10 12 35 6 New Zealand 10 15 12 37 7 Scotland 9 13 19 41 8 Nigeria 8 5 5 18 9 Cyprus 8 1 5 14 10 Wales 7 10 13 30 Busy day today with more Rugby 7's, cycling Road races, the medals in both mens and womens hockey, mens basketball semi's with womens medal matches plus more gold on offer on the aths track and diving. Could be a lot of medals to come today! Also of note is that I feel a bit for Canada. A very impressive 74 medals, however only 14 of them gold. Would be quite frustrating for them I'd imagine.

Mens pole vault, womens discus, mens beavh volleyball, 2 in the lawn bowls and Melissa Wu in the womens 10m platform (diving). Meanwhile the Hockeyroos won through to the final of the womens hockey while Artacho Del Solar & Clancy were brave loosing in two tight sets to the World Number 1 Canadians. Today the Opals and kookaburras have their semi finals, while the womens Rugby 7's kicks off and we'll chase more gold again on the track, diving and on the bowling green. And to sign off and to touch on your point @Macca it's great to see we've already won more gold then England did at Glasgow 2014 and are only 15 medals away from passing their total medal tally from 2014.

Sorry I mean Australia... We also saw gold in the lawn bowls, diving & shooting. Highlight for me again comes from the Beach Volleyball Court where Artacho Del Solar & Clancy fought out an intense three set win over the plucky Vanuatu team to make the gold medal match tonight against the Canadians who are World Number 1's. So today both our womens and mens beach volleyball teams go for gold and there's more gold on offer on the aths track and in the diving. The Hockeyroos will also play their semi final against India. Lets hope for a big final 4 days!

    That does sound like classic Bruce. Nice to hear Coe bringing him back to earth. Otherwise; TOP 10 MEDAL TALLY AFTER DAY 6 Rank Nation Total 1 Australia 50 38 42 130 2 England 24 29 21 74 3 India 11 4 6 21 4 New Zealand 9 10 7 26 5 South Africa 9 6 6 21 6 Canada 8 21 15 44 7 Wales 7 8 7 22 8 Scotland 6 10 12 28 9 Nigeria 4 4 0 8 10 Cyprus 4 0 2 6 We're doing it with surprising ease it seems. Finished off our pool meet with several more gold including both the medley relays and made this our most successful games in the pool. 27 gold I think??? Hockeyroos got past Scotland to secure top spot in their group and our Beach Volleyball teams both got through to the semi finals without much issue. I will say I think I'm in love with Artacho Del Solar😍! Could watch her dive around the sand all day long. Anyway, apart from the swimming we also saw gold in the womens para track plus mens and womens cycling time trial. My highlight however came in the womens Beach Volleyball where to pair from Cyprus (ranked 11 of the 12 teams competing) upset New Zealand (ranked 3rd) by playing same great beach volleyball. As for tomorrow we have Genevive LaCaze in the wlmens 3000m steeplechase, mens and womens beach volleyball semi finals, start of the diving program, Kookaburras v NZ to see who tops their pool, plus the Diamonds take on Jamaica to see who tops that pool. Another busy day!

Having said that, I think we have a big enough break on England to secure top of the tally. Yesterday we saw 2 gold in the gymnastics, 1 on the athletics track, 1 in the lawn bowls & 4 in the pool. Highlight going 1, 2, 3 in both the mens 200m backstroke & womens 800m freestyle plus Bronte & Cate Campbell going 1, 2 in the womens 100m freestyle. Today we have our final night of gold available in the pool and more gold on offer on the aths track. Meanwhile our mens & womens Beach Volleyball teams kick off their quarter finals and both the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos continue their campaigns.

Today we have the heats for the 100m sprint, the Boomers, Opals, Hockeyroos and Diamonds all in action as well as more gold in the pool. Should be another dominant day!
  9. Round 3 Non MFC games

    Agreed, would have been an opportunity for them to take a game to somewhere like Rockhampton or Bundaberg.
  10. 2018 Commonwealth Games

    Yes Macca, there's always bound to be a few clashes. Kookaburras and beach Volleyball both at 9:30pm while the swimming is running as well as the Diamonds in the Netball whose match starts at 8:30pm. As for an overal goal, I think 150 medals with approx 55 gold and to top the medals would have to be a realistic target. We had 137 medals with 49 gold in Glasgow while England had 174 medals with 58 gold, so definitely within reach. Wont get to watch as much today as I have other commitments, but will be looking out for updates.

Think we've set a platform to top it after what happened in Glasgow 2014. In team news, both our hockey teams had comfortable wins, the boomers had a tight win over New Zealand while Artacho Del Solar & Clancy took less tgen 30min to get past their opponents from Grenada in the beach volleyball, including winning the first set 21-2 in only 10 minutes! Tomorrow there's more medal chances in the pool and velodrome while the athletics also kicks off! The Kookaburras and Opals play their 2nd group matches, while our Netball team continue their push for gold, as do Artacho Del Solar & Clancy in my favorite, the beach volleyball!!!

Boomers and Opals both had 50+ point wins to kick off their basketball campaigns as did the Diamonds in their 2nd netball match v Barbados. Beach Volleyball also made its Commonwealth Games debut today with our men and women having comfortable wins, and I must say I really did enjoy watching Artacho Del Solar run and dive around in the sand😎. Highlight had to be the trifecta in the womens 100m butterfly however with Emma McKeon (often the bridesmaid) getting some individual glory ahead of Maddie Groves and Brianna Throsell. Tomorrow there's plenty more gold on offer in the pool and velodrome, while the Kookaburras finally kick off their campaign. Also in action will be the Hockeyroos, Boomers and Artacho Del Solar/Clancy in the womens Beach Volleyball.

Mack Horton and the womens 4x100m freestyle team repeat what they did in Rio 2016, while our first medal was a silver in the mens triathlon. While also of note is two world records that fell, womens 4x100m freestyle team and mens 4x4000m team pursuit team. Brilliant efforts! In team event updates the Hockeyroos were made to work hard for a 1-0 win over Canada and our Netball team (The Diamonds) did it a bit easier over Northern Ireland 94-26. Tomorrow we have the debut of beach Volleyball and we'll have the Boomers and Opals start their campaigns along with more medal hopes in swimming, cycling etc. Now I just have to stomach the Channel 7 commentary.
  14. 2018 Commonwealth Games

    So that time of the 4 year cycle where the Comm Games have come round, and this time we're back in Australia after only 12 years. I always enjoy watching them, but curious as to others interest? While I thoughg the opening ceremony was pretty ordinary last night, at least we're now into the competition! Big interest will be around if we can top the medal tally over England? We should do well in the swimming, team events and para events I'd of thought. But as for some very early updates, looks like Bermuda will take the first gold in the women's triathlon, wales are on the verge of an upset in the womens hockey (2-1 up over the much higher ranked India) and Sally Pearson is likely about to pull out.
  15. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - BAYLEY FRITSCH

    Saw Fritsch play several times this year out at Casey and the kid has talent to burn. Brilliant in the air for his build, good initial acceleration without being Jayden Hunt like and he tackles with intensity. I'd be very suprised if Bayley doesn't make the grade and have no doubt he'll play senior footy in 2018 baring injury. We've got a beauty!
