THE shocking injury to Phillip Hughes will reshape Australian cricket. The shock waves are so deep, they could even change the way Australia play the game.

    THE Phil Hughes tragedy has called into question the future of bouncers, but Greg Matthews and Geoff Lawson believe the fast bowling tactic should remain.

    PHIL Hughes is in a critical condition after suffering a vicious blow to the head that saw him hospitalised and play abandoned at the SCG.

    DEEPLY shaken NSW players gathered inside the SCG dressing rooms on Wednesday, but barely a word was spoken. Shock was the overwhelming emotion.

    AN ANONYMOUS member of the 2011 Manly Sea Eagles has done the unthinkable — selling an NRL premiership ring on eBay for a fraction of its worth.
