SPORTSVIEW with Gerard Walsh

IT is never easy being at the top level in two sports but that doesn't seem to be hurting former Warwick junior cricketer Delissa Kimmince.

Delissa has signed a rookie contract with the Brisbane Lions hoping to play in the inaugural 2017 national AFL competition for women but has plenty of unfinished business in cricket this season.

She is Queensland Fire captain and scored an unbeaten 93 from 62 balls in a win against New South Wales at the weekend. With the ball she took 0-20 off five overs.

Her bowling economy rate of four runs an over was a lot less than her batting strike rate of nine runs an over, the way it should be.

Great to see Delissa doing so well after a career in which injury cost her one World Cup appearance for Australia.

Retirements

TWO athletes with a Southern Downs connection are on the retirement list this year.

Former Pilton footballer Tony Duggan has retired after a career that included NRL for Brisbane, Super League for the Celtic Crusaders and more recently footy for Lezignan in the south of France.

Tonight will be the last major game in netball for former Warwick West student Clare McMeniman in a career that included three ANZ Championships with the Firebirds and a number of games as Australian Diamonds captain. Let's hope she wins tonight in Invercargill.
