AUSTRALIAN racing legend Bart Cummings, the trainer of a record 12 Melbourne Cup winners, will be honoured with a state funeral.

    EVEN from the grave Bart Cummings could win his 13th Melbourne Cup.

    AUSTRALIA say there are no excuses for not winning the only major trophy they’ve never laid their hands on, next year’s World Twenty20 in India.

    MELBOURNE Storm has travelled to Queensland four days early to cope with the NRL’s scheduling, which coach Craig Bellamy has called a “joke”.

    WHILE much of Australia was gripped to social media on Sunday waiting for No. 38 to take the field, here at Mile High Stadium in Denver it was much the same.
