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.

Events at the MCG

MCC members have unrestricted access to domestic and international cricket matches scheduled by Cricket Australia at the MCG as well as to AFL fixtures at the ground, (although Restricted membership does not carry automatic grand final attendance rights).


In the 2014 AFL season, the MCG hosted 45 home and away matches and five finals in September, including the grand final. The 2015 AFL fixture will be announced shortly.


The 2014/15 cricket season is upon us, with limited overs internationals involving South Africa in November, followed by India playing in the Boxing Day Test and an ODI series in January.
