Injured Kuhl has to be a patient patient

By RACHAEL BORICH

PATIENCE is a virtue, some- thing Rockhampton netballer Sally Kuhl needs to shoot for.

Kuhl, the lanky and deadly accurate goal shooter from reigning Senior A division pre- miers Buckaneers, last week joined a long list of early season injury victims when she dam- aged her knee in the first five minutes of her first grading game for the Rockhampton Net- ball Association 2006 season.

By Kuhl's calculations she gives herself a month off the court.

Her brother, Simon White, a physiotherapist, predicts the lay-off to be more like six to eight weeks ? at best.

Kuhl wanted to hit the court again next week, but instead forced the remaining 13 players on court, from Buckaneers and Brothers teams, to move to an- other court while the ambu- lance carted her off to hospital.

"I was so pumped and ready to go back to netball,'' Kuhl said.

With this 185cm shooter, with a split to die for, out of action Buckaneers shooting duties will fall to Lori McGahan and yours truly (Rachael Borich) will have to step up from her super-sub days of last season.

"She (Borich) needs some se- rious practice, but at least the ball hog (Kuhl) is gone,'' said Kuhl, trying to keep a straight face.

Grading games are over and fixtures start next week. n After 23 years as a director for the Rockhampton Tenpin Bowling Association, Rock- hampton's Jean Wright is tak- ing a break.

However, Jean will still keep bowling and helping with the 60s or betters group.
