The Long Range Rifle Shooting champs, for individuals, and the prestigious Palma Match team event, are held every four years. The side's captain, Tony Lough- man believes his team will acquit itself well and has a good chance of winning the coveted Palma for a first time. Trentham's Darryl Crow (the master coach) and Kevin Win are two of the team's five coaches whose performances will be criti- cal to the side's outcomes. Four of the side's 18 shooters are based at rifle clubs in Tren- tham. They are Andre Doyle, Casey Goldsmith, Jono Phillips and Helen Freiman, one of four women in the side which includes two marksmen in their early 20s and, in Geoff Smith, a 70-year old coach. The experience in the New Zea- land side also includes last year's Delhi Commonwealth Games gold medal winners John Snowdon and Mike Collings, with the former selected as the team's coach. The selection of John, a recent games medallist, as one of our five coaches shows the importance of the their role and the critical part they play in the whole team effort and result,'' Loughman says. The individual world champion- ships at Brisbane's Belmont Ranges will be shot over four con- secutive days from October 16, at 800, 900 and 100 yards. The Palma follows a couple of days later, shot over the same distances with two rounds of 15 shots, for the cumulative team totals. Loughman says the Palma remains the most elusive of sport- ing goal for New Zealand shooters who have never managed to win in in 28 years of competition. I'm picking the Palma will come down to just a few points this time, with the British, who have set the benchmark over the years, again hard to beat.'' Australia (the only country out- side Britain to have ever won the Palma), the United States and a very tough'' South Africa will also be very competitive for a Kiwi side which has only ever finished third, a result they have achieved three times during the years, he says. The Palma has only been held in New Zealand once, in 1995, but Loughman believes one positive outcome at Brisbane will be the confirmation the country, and Trentham, will be awarded the rights to hold world champs and the Palma in 2019.

Upper Hutt's Golden Oldies rugby team, the Yellow Bellies entertained a band of like-minded and similar aged rugby travellers from Montpellier in France, at Maidstone Park on Sunday. The locals, fresh'' from their two days and four games at a Golden Oldies tournament at Kilbirnie, welcomed their visiting side and were not unhappy at their limited numbers of the fighting fit and the agreement to settle on some touch footy with the sprightly visitors, in the end, aided by some local rugby youngsters. The game, which came a day after the visitors had endured their country's capitulation to Tonga, was followed by some Kiwi hospitality in the Upper Hutt rugby clubrooms. We put on a big meal for them, with a hangi, and they all stayed and watched the All Blacks game which, with its mid-afternoon start, fitted the day happening admirably,'' the Yellow Bellies' Gordon Tobin says.
