AUSTRALIA were a bunch of has-beens after the first Test, lords of the game after the second. Now? Perhaps closer to the former than the latter.

    AUSTRALIA slumped to one of the darkest days in the Darren Lehmann-Michael Clarke era as England dominated the opening day of the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

    SOUTH Melbourne’s return to the national stage has been cut short in gut-wrenching fashion, losing an epic penalty shootout to Palm Beach Sharks at Cbus Super Stadium.

    THE decision to effectively end Brad Haddin’s career has polarised former Australian greats, but Rod Marsh is adamant selectors had no other choice.

    A former A-League goalkeeper has been stood down from Wednesday night’s FFA Cup action after posting a Tweet calling for Adam Goodes to be “deported”.
