AUSTRALIAN golf great Greg Norman says he came perilously close to losing his left hand in a shocking chainsaw accident over the weekend.

    GOOD, BAD and UGLY for the weekend EPL is headlined by rampant Chelsea but is the cause of optimism at Old Trafford premature?

    AUSTRALIA coach Darren Lehmann supports the ICC’s chucking crackdown that resulted in the ban of Saeed Ajmal, labelling it as “good for the game”.

    ONE of the most disturbing sport stories of this century continues to grow, with calls for a powerful supremo to resign as a shocking CoverGirl image spreads across the internet.

    USA Basketball made it look at Palacio de los Deportes, blowing out Serbia 129-92 in the FIBA World Cup final.

    Trains
    There are two train stations close to the MCG. Jolimont (otherwise known as MCG Station) is north of the ground and offers a five-minute stroll through Yarra Park to the ground. From any railway station in the central business district, take the Hurstbridge or Epping lines.

    The other station is Richmond on the south eastern side of the MCG. It's an easy but slightly longer walk to the ground but you can walk past the Punt Road Oval to the Great Southern Stand side.

    To get to Richmond station from the city, take any train on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston or Sandringham lines.

    Trams
    Three tram routes provide access to the MCG.

    No. 75 (City-Vermont South) travels along Flinders St and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade.

    No. 48 (Docklands/City-North Balwyn) travels along Collins St and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade. Both these routes stop just outside the MCG. 

    No. 70 (Docklands/City-Wattle Park) travels along Flinders St then detours via Melbourne Park and the tram stop is a short walk across the footbridge to the ground.

    Buses
    The Bus route 246 is run by National Bus Company, which links La Trobe University with Elsternwick Station in a useful service for patrons from the northern and southern suburbs. The 246 stops in Punt Road, just a punt kick from the ground.

    Taxis
    Taxis are available from the ground at the conclusion of each event. Otherwise the venue is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the city.
