Canberra Capitals championship-winner Michelle Cosier will complete her transition from player to official when she takes charge of WNBL games just two years after retiring. Cosier has been included on the WNBL referee's panel for the 2017-18 season, joining husband Simon, Jack Taylor and Robert Rice as the Canberra contingent. Cosier helped lift the Capitals to their last title before ending a 15-year career to test herself in netball and women's AFL before settling on refereeing.
The ACT Brumbies have landed a major signing to bolster their back row as Western Force players begin searching for new homes after the ARU dropped the Super Rugby axe in Perth. Fijian-born powerhouse Isi Naisarani will join the Brumbies next season, adding a big ball-running No. 8 to the club's forward pack. Naisarani is one of the first players to leave the Force after the Perth-based club lost its bid to keep its place in Super Rugby, and more players are expected to follow in the coming weeks.
Wallabies winger Henry Speight will return to Fiji carrying boots, balls and clothes next week, but the speedster says the ultimate gift will be shifting a Test to his home country. Speight, ACT Brumbies teammate Tevita Kuridrani and the Classic Wallabies will fly to Fiji next week as part of the ARU's Pacific in Union program to develop the sport in the region.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
