THE maligned Marsh brothers guaranteed they will live on after a thrilling redemption story saw Australia claim a historic Test win under lights at Adelaide Oval.

    SYDNEY’S Matt Jones has won the Australian Open after a riveting final round at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney.

    MITCH Marsh has copped a devastating spray from former teammate Chris Rogers after the young all-rounder gave away his wicket with victory beckoning.

    MELBOURNE Victory captain Carl Valeri has lauded a depth of talent at his club that afforded him the time to rectify a nagging hamstring injury.

    MELBOURNE City flyer Harry Novillo says the A-League could be a legitimate end-of-career proposition for megastars like Cristiano Ronaldo with the right promotion.
