The Women’s World All Stars team had a convincing win of the Women’s Indigenous All Stars, 24-4 at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday. 

But the Indigenous All Stars didn’t give-in too easy, plently of ferocious hits amongst the superb tries, but it was the experience of the Women's World All Stars team that was too much for the Women's Indigenous All Stars.

How's this for a hit?!

Half-Pipe, Youth Olympics

Australian snowboarder Emily Arthur has finished second in the halfpipe at the Lillehammer 2016 Youth Olympic Games, with teammate Mahalah Mullins 15th.

Arthur, who was the Australian team flag bearer, won the silver medal with a score of 90.0 with a sensational performance on her second of three runs, in the pipe at Oslo Vinterpark.

She finished behind American two-time X Games champion Chloe Kim (96.50) with Korean Yu-rim Yeong (84.50) claiming the bronze.

"I'm so excited," said 16-year-old from Woronora Heights in Sydney.

"When I landed my second run I was over the moon and couldn't keep back my smile. I'm so, so happy."

Arthur started with a great first run of 87.25 to sit seven points behind Kim. The American then improved to 96.50 and the Australian with some more confidence and amplitude improved to 90.0.

On the third and final run 15-year-old sensation Kim had another great run but could not improve her score. Arthur had a fall on the final run with the silver medal in the bag.

"After my first run I was in the high 80s and I was really confident heading into my next run and when I got into the 90s I was amazed and so happy.

"Chloe (Kim) killed it and I just came to land my run and I did that so I'm stoked." 

Mullins from Albury in NSW competed in the pipe for experience and she can now focus on her pet slopestyle event later in the week, where she has finished top 10 in a senior World Cup this season. Arthur was also competing in slopestyle.

The fifth and penultimate day of these World Championships saw World #1 Jason Waterhouse (NSW) and Lisa Darmanin (NSW) drop from second into fifth after one of their worst days and posting a 34-17-17 series in the three races of the day.

“It was obviously a really tough day for Lisa and I. We had big waves and breeze that built all day. We were fifth in the first race when we capsized, which dropped us to last. That became our drop so we are carrying a 22 from earlier in the week. In the second race we were sixth around the top mark and then had a penalty. We had a pretty bad overlay on my part, which dropped us back to mid-teens. And in the last race we hooked some weed, so it was one of those days, one of the worst days in sailing of this year. But we’ll just call it a character builder,” Jason Waterhouse said.
