AUSTRALIAN tennis is on the march and the next 48 hours will show exactly how far it has to travel as a trio of Aussies look to make their mark in Paris.

    FIFA president Sepp Blatter says he can’t be blamed for the corruption scandal engulfing the organisation, claiming he can’t “monitor” every official.

    AUSTRALIA is the raging hot favourite for the Ashes and the upcoming series against West Indies, but do the Aussies deserve to be so confident?

    THE Queensland Oaks has been robbed of a major drawcard with Gai Waterhouse’s Bohemian Lily scratched this morning.

    QPR’S Aussie signing Massimo Luongo says the prospect of regular football was the key factor in his decision to snub a move to Premier League side Aston Villa.

    Long Room Wine and Food Society Old Bottle Day

    Once again we start off our new year program with the highly popular and informal Old Bottle Day luncheon to be held in the Long Room on Wednesday January 29, 2014.

    Bring one or two of your favourite bottles (but no more than two), preferably with a bit of age on them (but still drinkable) to share with fellow members.

    On arrival you will be greeted with sparkling wine and sherry from our cellar followed by an excellent three-course luncheon.

    As in previous years this function will be restricted to society members only and numbers will be capped at 90. No specific seating arrangements will apply, and an informal U-shaped table setting will be arranged.

    Eminent wine writer and critic Jeremy Oliver will again give his expert opinion on all wines presented throughout the lunch. The winner of Jeremy’s wine of the day will be added to the Old Bottle Day perpetual trophy which will be on display showing all past winners.
