Sport Cats make call on Lyon after sounding out coach
Program targeting feral cats in the Northern Territory town of Batchelor should continue, vets say
Feral cats kill billions of Australia's native animals each year, experts say, and a pilot program in a small Northern Territory town may be the answer to the problem.Over a two-day period in June this year, 26 feral cats in the Batchelor area were caught in traps and humanely euthanised as part of the Coomalie Community Government Council's Veterinary and Education Program.
chief executive Steve Hocking has confirmed Ross Lyon won't be part of Chris Scott's coaching staff next season.
Reports earlier this month suggested the Cats had sounded out Lyon's availability.
Hocking, who was previously the AFL's general manager of football, revealed Lyon was "one of a number of people" the club had spoken with.
"Chris (Scott) and Ross (Lyon) go back a long way," Hocking told SEN.
"I actually had a fair bit to do with Ross at the AFL. I was big on making sure we were talking to people about the game. I don't think one person has all the answers, I've never believed that.
Lyon end Toulouse's perfect Top 14 start
Lyon condemned Toulouse to their first defeat of the French Top 14 season on Sunday with a 25-19 victory. Stade Francais, the under-performing financial heavyweights of the French Top 14, won a second successive match for the first time this season on Saturday. A narrow 23-22 win at fellow strugglers Perpignan left forwards coach Laurent Sempere describing the knife-edge triumph as "mission accomplished".Stade, who are reported to be bankrolled to the tune of just under 40 million euros this season, were indebted to international flanker Sekou Macalou who scored two tries.
"You get out and you scope what is available. Ross was one of a number of people we've spoken to.
"One of the great things about Ross which Chris and I both enjoyed was he gave us an external view of what he sees of our football club.
"The potential opportunities that might be in front of us, and where the game is going. I'm very appreciative of the time he gave us and the insights he provided us."
But as it stands, Lyon isn't being pursued by the club.
"No, it's not," Hocking said when asked if the former Fremantle and St Kilda coach was an option.
"We just talked through a whole host of things, including what he's done in other programs.
