UNCAPPED Queenslander Joe Burns has beaten former Test opener Ed Cowan to the punch and will play for Australia in the Boxing Day Test.

    MELBOURNE City’s derby hero Erik Paartalu said his side’s win was a crucial step in bridging the gap to big brother Melbourne Victory.

    NATHAN Burns fires Phoenix into top four — and himself firmly into the Socceroos’ Asian Cup frame. Read our Round 11 A-League review.
