SOUTH AFRICA’S captain says Australia’s cricketers can’t expect the Proteas to want to be mates with them. Follow the game LIVE in our Match Centre!

    SENNA did it. So did Fangio, Brabham and Schumacher. A third F1 win on bounce at Monza would put Daniel Ricciardo in rare company.

    BERNARD Tomic is through to round 2 of the US Open after a straight sets victory over Dustin Brown while Marinko Matosevic was unable to topple five-time champion Roger Federer.

    THE FFA Cup Round of 16 has thrown up some fantastic fixtures, none bigger than Sydney United's clash with A-League side Sydney FC.

    FORGET the Socceroos. There’s a team of rising Aussie basketball superstars we should all get behind this week. They might even beat the USA. Really.
