COLLINGWOOD and Essendon is the biggest sporting show in town on Anzac Day, but the Storm insists its annual fixture is also here to stay.

    ALEX Leapai has sent an injury scare through his camp, complaining of a sore shoulder just days away from fighting Wladimir Klitschko.

    THE squads for this weekend’s A-League finals are in, with the biggest news out of Melbourne where Tom Rogic has missed out but Adrian Leijer is in.

    MARK Skaife has boldly declared that Jamie Whincup’s record-breaking V8 Supercars assault will come to a screaming halt this year.

    THE past and futures of Brisbane and Melbourne Victory are inextricably linked but their minds will be on the present come Sunday’s semi-final.
