Non-stop actionman FIONA BRADY Good sport Matthew Pinter. Picture: PHIL BLATCH PP208942 JUNIOR SPORTS STAR FIVE Dock's Matthew Pinter loves to be in the thick of the action -- whatever that action might be. In winter it's rugby, in sum- mer it's cricket and he manages to squeeze in plenty of swim- ming and athletics besides. Rugby narrowly edges out cricket as the 10 year old's favourite sport. ''Rugby is more energetic and you get to move around and tackle and pass and run and do all that stuff, whereas cricket is not as full-on,'' he said. He plays rugby for the 10A side at his school St Patrick's College, Strathfield and for Drummoyne's Dirty Reds. This year he also played for the Northern Suburbs represen- tative side. Now that summer is almost here, the Year 5 student has switched to playing cricket for his school's 5A side. ''I'm mostly a bowler and a fielder,'' he said. ''I'm not a very good batsman but we're working on it.'' He's goes to Inner West Little Athletics and has represented his school in swimming and the high jump at the JSHAA compe- tition. Matthew said his biggest achievement was competing in the high jump at the NSW Combined Independent Schools competition. His best ever jump was 1.38m -- impressive for someone who's only 1.44m himself. His dad Mike Pinter said: ''Every sporting opportunity he's had to represent the school -- swimming, athletics, rugby, cricket -- he's done it all.'' His family are so impressed with Matthew's achievements that they've decided to get in on the action themselves. His dad Mike, sister Georgia and younger brother Josh are all playing cricket for Balmain -- and his mum Lesley is the manager of Josh's under-8 team. Nominations have closed.
