    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.

    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: steve.sayers@optusnet.com.au).

    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.
