MITCHELL Starc’s summer could be over after the Australian paceman left Adelaide Oval on crutches with a foot stress fracture on Friday night.

    AARON Mooy’s brilliance helped Melbourne City return to the A-League’s top six with a comprehensive victory over Perth Glory.

    PETER Siddle became a worthy inductee into the 200-wicket club on Friday night, and is now just one step away from earning what he truly deserves – a Cricket Australia contract.

    MELBOURNE Storm will have the city to themselves in early March with back-to-back NRL home games at AAMI Park before the start of the AFL season.

    JAMES Pattinson is expected to be playing Test cricket by Boxing Day but a fresh injury drama for Mitchell Starc could see him back in Hobart.
