    Richmond have defended their signing of Chris Yarran, arguing potential mental health issues shouldnt mean an AFL player becomes unrecruitable. Youth Marcell Ateman Jersey .Yarran left the club on Tuesday without playing a game for the Tigers.The defender struggled with injury and mental illness this year after leaving Carlton at the end of the 2015 season.Tigers football boss Neil Balme on Wednesday rejected any suggestions Yarran was a risky recruitment because of perceived concerns around his susceptibility to mental health problems.You cant say it was a bad decision because it didnt work out, Balme told SEN radio.Do you think then that, say, Sydney shouldnt have taken a risk on Lance Franklin? Hes had some issues with mental health. Was it a good idea to do that or not? Clearly it was.Lets not talk about that. Lets just say, is it worth helping these young men and take a risk to help them to play the game they want to play? Surely it is.Sometimes they dont work out.Yarran hired a personal coach and tried to rebuild his fitness over the last few weeks before training with the Tigers on Monday.His agent Paul Connors said Yarran realised the following day he couldnt maintain an AFL workload for the whole year, instead returning home to Perth to be with his family.The demands and rigours of AFL, for him to do it day-in day-out, was just going to be too much, Connors told RSN radio.He knew he didnt want to put teammates through this for another year.Yarran is not the only player to spend time away from the game due to mental health issues - the list includes recently delisted Geelong forward Mitch Clark and Fremantles Cam McCarthy.AFL operations manager Mark Evans admitted the league had failed to fully understand the complex issues around mental health of players.Some of those things I dont think we understand what it would be like for a player who has mental health issues who is then getting trolled pretty hard through social media, Evans told SEN.Yarran played 119 AFL games with the Blues before being traded for draft pick No.19.Balme said the Tigers would not stand in Yarrans way if he chose to play in the WAFL. Cheap Raiders Jerseys . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Youth Maurice Hurst Jersey . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. . Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. Railway StakesWith Group I racing in the eastern states done for another year, attention now turns to the west. The Railway Stakes is the traditional kickstarter of the Ascot carnival, and this year the 1600m handicap presents quite the poser for punters.Its always hard to line up form from one side of the country to the other, but thats what we must do when filtering through the chances for this event.The key local hopes look to be Perfect Reflection, Disposition and Tradesman, the 1-2-3 in the Lee Steere Stakes a fortnight ago.Of that trio I would lean towards Perfect Reflection as she will improve again third-up, draws well and is the chosen mount of gun Perth hoop, William Pike. Tradesman should certainly be respected back in a handicap off his WFA placing, but Disposition, as classy as he is, has drawn off the track and is yet to prove that 1600m is his go.The latter sentiment also applies to Rageese, who nevertheless leads the interstate charge following his impressive win at Flemington. Asking the entire to show he stays a mile in Group I class is a big ask, however.Good Project, last years winner, returns with just 2kg more to carry, but this field is much tougher and the better of Chris Wallers two entries is Mackintosh. Just fourth-up here, he ran well in a hot Cantala Stakes and is a definite winning chance. Nor should He Or She be underestimated at odds; the former WA star returns home and boasts some ripping old form at Ascot.Recommended bet: Perfect Reflection to win @ $5 with UBET but save with a boxed exacta Nos. 4, 6 & 7.Ballarat CupA highly competitive edition of the Ballarat Cup, which as usual brings together a mix of campaigners: some at the end of their spring journey, others in the first flushes of their summer sojourn.Six contestants are backing up from Saturdays Group III Eclipse Stakes, including the winner Turnitaround, third placegetter Lidari and the beaten favourite Cool Chap.All three hold chances again, and its an illustration of just how open this race is that Cool Chap is holding sway as market elect at $7 with UBET.But if Cool Chap is rated such a good hope, so too must be another at almost double the quote: Scherzoso.The Tony McEvoy-trained gelding has come back in good order, first-up finishing not far behind Railway Stakes hope, Rageese, before placing at Flemington on Oaks day.Scherzoso finished two lengths behind Cool Chap that day and meets him 3.5kg better for that defeat. That weight pull, along with added fitness third-up, should see him reverse order with the favourite and figure somewhere in the money.But, as stated, its a race of many chances, and punters could do worse than look at comeback gallopers Puccini and Lord Van Percy if considering multiples or each-way savers.Recommended bet: Scherzoso each-way @ $13 with UBET.Best BetRosehill Race 7, No.5 Religify @ $3.50 with UBETPunters have every right to desert this fellow after his costly last-start defeat at Canterbury, where he was rolled as a $1.60 favourite.But, as painful as that reverse was - and, for some, still is - followers would be well advised to keep the faith.Religify missed the kick at Canterbury and had to be pushed along to lead, where he was pestered senseleess by another runner. Youth Johnny Townsend Jersey. The geldings effort to run second was actually full of merit, and shows he remains in excellent form.Everything on Saturday suits: firm going, 1400m, a track where hes won four from eight. Even the wide draw might be OK - if Religify is tardy again (which is unlikely), Kerrin McEvoy will have time and space to cross a field not blessed with much pace.Itll take the very committed, or the very forgiving, to stick solid. But those who do could well be rewarded.Over the oddsRosehill Race 9, No.13 Salmanazar @ $4 with UBETLeading Queensland trainer Tony Gollan hasnt yet made a mark in Sydney through his satellite stable at Rosehill, but its only a matter of time until he does.The horse to put Gollan on the map south of the border could be Salmanazar. The lightly raced four-year-old showed plenty in his second prep, progressing from a Toowoomba maiden to a narrow defeat in Stakes grade during the Brisbane winter carnival, where he beat home the well-regarded Tsaritsa.Salmanazar trialled the house down at Rosehill earlier this month and, from a good draw, looks primed to run a big race fresh. Can see him being backed and will be hard to beat.Eagle Farm Race 7, No.3 Coolring @ $4.60 with UBETBjorn Baker has a tidy record when whisking his gallopers off to Queensland, and Coolring can enhance the trainers record in that state at Eagle Farm on Saturday.Coolring improved markedly second-up to finish on the heels of the placegetters at Randwick, and just one length behind the smart winner Kaepernick.That form is good enough to be winning this race, and the Sebring gelding maps well just behind what should be a solid tempo. Will be hard to hold out.Lay of the dayRosehill Race 5, No.1 Kuro @ $6 with UBETNot the longest-priced lay in history, but this one can safely be discounted as a winning hope at single-figure odds.Ran OK first-up at Canterbury, but had every chance from the front and was still mowed down by Grunderzeit. Its worth noting, too, that Kuros second-up form isnt as flash as his first-up record.Its now 559 days since the gelding last tasted success. Under a big weight in a race of good speed, that number is about to be 560.Under the oddsBallarat Race 1, No.2 Cheeky Babe @ $3.10 with UBETBookmakers are a bit cheeky posting this one as favourite for Ballarats opener given, on the point of weights alone, she simply cannot win.Cheeky Babe beat Entrancing by half a length at Moonee Valley last start and now meets that rival 2.5kg worse off. While its dangerous to get too carried away with weights and measures, Cheeky Babe had much the better run at the Valley and, well, that weight swing is very hard to ignore!Throw in other live chances in the shape of Diamond Baroness and Go Down, and Cheeky Babe is huge unders at the present quote.Multi of the weekendRosehill Race 4, No.1 Herenes Oak - PLACE @ $3.60Rosehill Race 7, No.1 Religify - PLACE @ $1.63Rosehill Race 9, No.13 Salmanazar - PLACE @ $1.75Eagle Farm Race 7, No.3 Coolring - PLACE @ $1.85Ballarat Race 8, No.15 Scherzoso - PLACE @ $4Multi price: $75.99 with UBET Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
