BELL Street Mall came alive with the spirit of the Commonwealth Games at the weekend.

New Zealand finished fifth on the medal table, placing them just above South Africa and below Australia, England, India and Canada. "No one had any sporting obligations so we're together for the first time and we just run into anyone we can and start chatting about whatever", he told Fox Sports News. "I actually said to them, 'can you win by a few more goals because this isn't pleasurable on the bench?"'

"Having received such a positive response to the opening ceremony on the Gold Coast earlier this month, we share GOLDOC's disappointment at the level of criticism targeted at specific aspects of last night's ceremony", Jack Morton managing director Helen Graney said. We had a good contest today and we are happy we came out as the winners.

Feeling comfortable in his decision to retire, Knowles said he hasn't second guessed himself at all after bringing home the gold. It was very tense, but I was happy to pull through.

After getting back on his feet, Hawkins struggled to continue across the bridge before crashing into the railing and collapsing on the road just two kilometres from the finish line.

Knowles said that the team only once mentioned wanting to send him off with the gold, because that wasn't their aim.

Neville added: "It was a dream as a player and I'm living it as a coach though these players".

England stunned Australia to clinch their first Commonwealth Games netball gold medal as Helen Housby scored a dramatic victor in the final seconds of a thrilling final at Gold Coast 2018.

"If I can say anything to the next people wearing the green and gold, young kids coming up, when you get on the microphone, when you speak, err on the side of kindness".

Australian athlete reaction has been mixed, with star swimmer Cameron McEvoy unaware of the furore until the day after but Boomers basketballer Angus Brandt saying they felt "left out". "What I know is that you have to work really hard and you don't get anything you don't deserve, but we earned that win".

"I'm going to be doing marathons until they bury me in a gutter but I'm not going to be able to find that sort of stuff, that sort of stuff is when you have got that green and gold on mate".
