UNCAPPED Queenslander Joe Burns has beaten former Test opener Ed Cowan to the punch and will play for Australia in the Boxing Day Test.

    THEY’RE the moments you’ll never forget from a very memorable sporting year. VIEW THE GALLERY HERE.

    WITH an internal probe being launched and the players’ wives - but not girlfriends - on their way, India’s tour of Australia is getting rather chaotic.

    ROBERT CRADDOCK: Picking an in-form Joe Burns is a positive move, with Australia carrying two batsmen who have long been more style than results.

    VISA stars Damien Duff and Robbie Koren could be welcomed into the starting side for Melbourne City’s Boxing Day clash with Perth Glory.
