    THE immediate reactions were shock and sadness from across the globe as news of Phillip Hughes’ tragic death filtered through on Thursday.

    AS the cricket community wrestles with what to do next after Phillip Hughes’ death, RON REED writes the first Test against India should proceed, with the result mattering less than the symbolism of playing it.

    PHILLIP Hughes’ family and Australian captain Michael Clarke have delivered a heartbreaking farewell after the batsman died from head injuries today.

    AUSTRALIAN cricketer Phillip Hughes has died after being struck in the head while batting at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He was 25.

    IT is doubtful whether any incident has caused more widespread grief in Australian cricket than the loss of one of the game’s most likeable characters.

    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.
