THE Kiwi skipper is one of the most damaging batsmen in the world. But his record against Australia is less than convincing.

    AUSTRALIA’S Geoff Ogilvy is battling with Jordan Spieth for the lead early during the first round of the Australian Open golf championship in Sydney.

    AMERICANS have reacted with shock to the shooting of NFL star Stedman Bailey, who copped two bullets to the head while sitting in a car.

    THERE is no pressure quite like being the supremely talented grandson of the greatest athlete of all time.

    WATCH this lad achieve the impossible, potting a conversion after hitting the posts not once, not twice but three times — and then the crossbar for good measure.
