    THE genius of Johnathan Thurston has finally had its way with a grand final, willing the Cowboys over the finish line in a golden point thriller.

    IT was perhaps the greatest game of rugby league ever played. But who stood up under the pressure and who cracked when it mattered most?

    IMMORTALITY awaits Cowboys champion Johnathan Thurston. And it waited until the last, last moment, writes PAUL KENT.

    BRONCOS coach Wayne Bennett slammed the golden-point concept, believing grand finals should not be decided by an extra-time shootout.

    THERE was hysterical sobbing and total disbelief — and that was from the winners. Don’t miss Robert Craddock’s take on an epic grand final.


    Clay Target Shooting

    Clay Target shooting is the most recent shooting discipline to be introduced into the MCC Target Shooting Section, forming in 2006.

    Russell Mark OAM (Olympic and Commonwealth Games gold medallist) was elected inaugural chairman in 2006 and remained chairman until 2013. The current chairman is Steve Sayers (contact email:

    It is proposed to hold range days approximately every six weeks at so at a variety of shooting ranges around Melbourne and through country Victoria. ACTA, Field and Game and Vintagers are all catered for.

    In some instances, we will hire the range for the exclusive use of MCC shooters, whilst we will also join with other shooting clubs on their scheduled shooting days.

    We are particularly interested in the promotion of the sport to juniors, and coaching is available for novices as well as for the more experienced shooters. Amongst our members include past Olympians and Australian representative shooters across various principles.

    For information regarding membership or on any of the shooting clubs, please contact Xavier McLaurin, secretary via or 0409 171 415.
