AUSTRALIAN racing legend Bart Cummings, the trainer of a record 12 Melbourne Cup winners, will be honoured with a state funeral.

    EVEN from the grave Bart Cummings could win his 13th Melbourne Cup.

    AUSTRALIA say there are no excuses for not winning the only major trophy they’ve never laid their hands on, next year’s World Twenty20 in India.

    MELBOURNE Storm has travelled to Queensland four days early to cope with the NRL’s scheduling, which coach Craig Bellamy has called a “joke”.

    WHILE much of Australia was gripped to social media on Sunday waiting for No. 38 to take the field, here at Mile High Stadium in Denver it was much the same.

    The Game of Bridge

    Contract bridge or more commonly just bridge, is a trick-taking game using a standard 52 card deck of playing cards. It is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table.

    In Australia, bridge is run by the Australian Bridge Federation (ABF) and in Victoria by the Victorian Bridge Association (VBA).

    The ABF has prepared two excellent 10 minute introductory videos titled New to Bridge? and Improve Your Bridge.
