DARREN Lehmann has made an emotional defence of his sacking of Brad Haddin, calling it “the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make as a coach or player”.

    ENGLAND is 2-1 up in the Ashes and boy are the Poms letting us know about it, with one former Test star issuing a withering take down of the Aussies.

    SELECTORS have assured Michael Clarke he has all the time he needs to fix his struggling form after the captain took the blame for Australia’s crushing loss at Edgbaston.

    RONDA Rousey and Bethe Correia got heated at the weigh-in before their UFC bantamweight bout in Brazil.

    AN error-riddled and ill-disciplined Storm has suffered a big setback in its quest to make the top four, humbled by the bottom-placed Tigers.
