Is this Basketball? The Phillipines – Basketbrawl

basketball-brawl-main-740x357

The Boomers vs The Phillipines turned into a farce, albeit a very dangerous farce in the game between Australia and the Phillipines in Manila on Monday. The game was abandoned and it is expected that FIBA, the world Basketball Organisation, will come down hard on the protagonists. Chairs were thrown and one Australian player – the smallest – Nathan Sobey had over 12 players and officials punching and kicking him. Boomers Assistant Coach Luc Longley rescued both he and Chris Goulding from the assault – which he lays squarely at the feet of the Phillipines Coach – Chot Reyes.

“I do believe Chot Reyes incited them to do that” said Longley

Back here in Australia, Nellakir are preparing our competition playing surfaces for the next generation of Australian champions. (There is some doubt as to whether the Australian team might venture back to the Phillipines any time soon)

Currently the Nellakir team are doing a strong round of annual maintenance projects in the school holiday period.

At Beaconsfield, St Francis Xavier’s Secondary College, where Nellakir recently finished construction of a flood damaged full size court, ensuring the school has virtually two brand new courts at the start of the new term.

It is also carrying out another re-sanding job at Berrindale School in Hampton. A small multi-purpose Gymnasium style area is being fully refreshed and refurbished.
