UNCAPPED Queenslander Joe Burns has beaten former Test opener Ed Cowan to the punch and will play for Australia in the Boxing Day Test.

    JUST because Australia is short of batting talent does not mean it should hand out gold passes to players who are struggling to deliver.

    MIKE Hussey​ and Jacques Kallis proved class is ageless when they guided the Sydney Thunder to a comfortable win over the Brisbane Heat.

    MELBOURNE City’s derby hero Erik Paartalu said his side’s win was a crucial step in bridging the gap to big brother Melbourne Victory.

    The National Golf ClubFollowing the success of the annual MCC Members’ Golf Day at Kingston Heath in 1998, an MCC Golf Club was established as a special interest group.

    Its immediate popularity and solid membership growth warranted its elevation to MCC Sporting Section status in 2003.

    The Golf Section is a wandering club, playing monthly at premier Victorian courses such as Kingston Heath, Royal Melbourne, Yarra Yarra, The National, Commonwealth and Huntingdale. We also do overseas golf tours, typically to Hong Kong and London to play official matches against golfers from those respective Cricket Clubs. Perpetual trophies are played for.

    As at December 31, 2013, there were 324 members of the MCC Golf Section
    (284 male and 40 female). We welcome additional members at any time.
