AUSTRALIA’s medal tally has gone backwards every Olympics since Sydney 2000 but a new report has predicted the bleeding is about to stop.

    KEVIN Muscat has been named captain of the PFA A-League Team of the Decade, but there was no room for Alessandro Del Piero in the starting side.

    AUSTRALIAN football stands to garner a multi-million dollar windfall from the swathe of European giants heading here this winter.

    MELBOURNE Storm centre Will Chambers will make his Test debut for Australia on Friday night as part of a Kangaroos squad that also includes Billy Slater.

    THERE’S only one batsmen with 1000 runs to his name that’s averaged more in Test cricket than England’s No. 3 and his name is Don Bradman.
