<< Luke Gale

The Castle­ford half-back landed a drop goal in sud­den-death ex­tra-time to send his side to a maiden Su­per League Grand Fi­nal. Just 16 days af­ter be­ing rushed to hospi­tal for an emer­gency ap­pen­dec­tomy, Gale made a tri­umphant re­turn, scor­ing a try, kick­ing five goals and, most im­por­tantly, com­ing up with the one-pointer to clinch a heart-stop­ping 23-22 win over St He­lens.

>> Ha­roon Lor­gat

The Cricket South Africa chief ex­ec­u­tive stepped down af­ter feel­ing his role had be­come un­ten­able just weeks be­fore the start of the new do­mes­tic T20 com­pe­ti­tion. CSA said there was a “break­down in the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the board and the chief ex­ec­u­tive”. Lor­gat was sup­posed to con­tinue un­til 2019, but dif­fer­ences in han­dling of the in­au­gu­ral T20 Global League, which starts on Novem­ber 3, led to the split.
