Top scorer

BRISBANE - Quade Cooper has set his sights on eclipsing five-eighth great Michael Lynagh's all-time points-scoring record for Queensland. Cooper became the Reds' highest Super Rugby points-scorer, by kicking seven from 10 for an 18-point haul in Friday night's crucial 43-33 win over the Cheetahs.

Young keeper

GLASGOW - Scottish champions Celtic are set to sign 13-year-old goalkeeper Joshua Rae after beating Liverpool and Everton for his signature. Rae has yet to make his professional debut for Scottish second-tier side Hamilton Academical, but he is already regarded as one of the brightest goalkeeping prospects in Britain.

Ostberg leads

LEN, Mexico - Norway's Mads Ostberg, in a Citroen, led the Rally of Mexico after yesterday's opening five stages, relegating world champion Sebastien Ogier in a Volkswagen into second spot. Ostberg has a three-second advantage over the Frenchman while Finland's Mikko Hirvonen is 11 seconds off the pace in a Ford Fiesta in third spot.

In top form

SOPOT, Poland - Sally Pearson continued her blistering early-season form, matching her season-best 60m hurdles indoor time on the opening day of the championships in Sopot, Poland. Pearson, who last week set the fastest time of the season when she clocked 7.79sec at a meet in Berlin, matched her own mark in emphatic style on Friday.
