CRICKETING greats Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar will captain opposing teams in a three-match Twenty20 tour of the USA next month.

    DESPITE being told to keep his Aussie accent for off-field endeavours, Jarryd Hayne has lost it on it — confusing teammates.

    THE Aidan O’Brien pair Order Of St George and Ol’ Man River are out of the Melbourne Spring Carnival although the Irish trainer will still be well represented.

    RETIRED Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke will take on one of the biggest challenges of his career since leaving the pitch when he jumps aboard the 100-foot supermaxi Loyal for the 71st Sydney to Hobart.

    IT was an odd mixture of disappointment and relief for Michael Hooper after he was issued a one-match suspension by World Rugby for foul play last night.
