PHILLIP Hughes stepped up to the crease at the SCG on Tuesday and was soon he on his way to what promised to be his 27th first-class century. But at 2.23pm the world stopped.

    CRICKET Australia has promised a review into player safety in light of the Hughes’ tragedy, with particular emphasis on helmet regulations.

    AS tough as the first steps will be, I hope Sean Abbott’s NSW teammates can coax him back into the practice nets at some stage, writes Allan Border.

    CRICKET Australia have handled the awful task that befell them after Phillip Hughes’ tragic accident with exemplary calm and dignity.

    HE is the patriach of cricket in Australia. Now Richie Benaud has lent his evocative narration to Channel 9’s powerful tribute to Phillip Hughes.

    MCC Lacrosse section was founded in 1896 by players formerly affiliated with the Caulfield and Melbourne clubs. The Section won its first Victorian Lacrosse Association (VLA) premiership in 1920 and another in 1927.  Although nearly always competitive, many decades passed before the MCC’s senior team won its next Victorian premiership in 2005.

    The Lacrosse Section helped to host MCG international matches in 1907 and 1958, the latter game being organised by inaugural Hans Ebeling Award winner Bill Gray. MCC fields senior and junior teams in the VLA and the Women’s Lacrosse Victoria competition.

    The Section now fields team in senior and junior grades in the Victorian Lacrosse Association competition on Saturdays and junior and senior ladies teams in the Women's Lacrosse Victoria competition on Sundays.

    The teams train and play matches at the Albert Cricket Ground, Queens Road, Melbourne. We are looking for more girls to take on this fast-moving sport, if you are interested please contact secretary Michael Lambden on 0425 750 679.
