McKenzie today named Nick Phipps and Bernard Foley in the starting side for game three of the 2014 Rugby Championship with White and Kurtley Beale on the bench after being part of the first XV in Australia’s last two outings against New Zealand.

The Wallabies have yet to win a Test in this year’s competition despite holding the All Blacks to a 12-all draw in Sydney on August 16 and McKenzie said he felt this was the right mix of players to tackle the Springboks at Patersons Stadium on the weekend.

“While the size of the challenge isn’t any easier this week, the South Africans do play a unique brand of rugby which we will need to adjust to,” McKenzie said.

“That’s reflected in our selections somewhat, where we feel the partnership of Nick and Bernard will best suit the style of game we’ll be trying to play.

“They’ve got a proven combination at a Super Rugby level and we look forward to seeing how that translates into the Test environment.

“It’s naturally disappointing for the two guys who missed out on the starting team in Nic and Kurtley, but the reality is we have a lot of good players in those playmaking positions.

“We expect them to respond in a positive manner and to make an impact playing an important role in how we close out the match.”

He was running in eighth place until injuries sustained when he crashed into a tree claimed his life.

NOTE TO SELF: Long-time local Elvis impersonator Gerard Barnes marked the anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death by performing renditions of his favourite songs.

Elvis starred in 33 films, made history with his television appearances and specials, and received great acclaim through many record-breaking live concert performances. Mr Barnes said he started following Elvis’ career as a school boy and has since collected hundreds of pieces of Elvis memorabilia. He is pictured surrounded by just some of that memorabilia.

One feature of this course is the ride over Menglers Hill as used in the Tour Down Under, while another is the new, fun “Tuffkidz’ race for children 7 to 13 year-olds consisting of a 750 metre run, three kilometre bike and a 500 metre run.

The Long Course event consists of a 10 kilometre run followed by a 40 kilometre bike and completed with a five kilometre run, while the Short Course consists of a five kilometre run 20 kilometre bike and a two and a half kilometre run.

Two Barossa Valley competitors in the Barossa Duathlon event this year, Wayne Goodwinand Guy Draper, have been training hard and will compete in the Short Course. The pair have had a busy training regime for this year’s event.

“We have been riding around 100 kilometres and running 15 to 20 kilometres per week, including training together with Team Barossa, riding Menglers Hill and running,” Guy said.

Guy has been competing for the past three years and last year came in the top 10 overall and has ridden in the BUPA Challenge with Tour Down Under.

“My goal this year is to finish somewhere in the top ten again – in sight of Wayne,” Guy said.

Guy encouraged Wayne to compete in the Barossa Duathlon this year and while he has only been riding for a year and had his bike since March this year, Guy said Wayne will be a tough competitor.

Wayne said, “I was a runner 20 years ago and had hung up my sporting boots but I have discovered through training and exercising I have my fitness back and I am enjoying it.

“Training together with goals to achieve gives us the motivation to keep up the hard work and we are competitive.

“I hope to complete the course – that’s my aim.”

“I think I will be trying my best to keep ahead of Wayne – he is going to be a strong contender in this race,” Guy said.

Both men agree cyclists are very lucky in the Barossa Valley with beautiful scenery, quiet roads, lack of traffic and traffic lights and no vehicle fumes and are throwing out the challenge for more Barossa people to compete in the event.

Organisers of the event are keen to grow the event and include an inter-winery competition in 2015 and also encourage more people to come to the Barossa and enjoy the region.

Athletes and supporters are invited to a post-event lunch at Seppeltsfield Wines for $25 which includes a complimentary bottle of wine and every entrant this year goes into a draw to win a free entry into the Qattro Glenelg Triathlon.

Competitors must be present at the post race lunch at Seppeltsfield to claim their prize.
