CHANNEL Nine failed to show Monday night’s women’s Ashes T20 match live on television and while fans weren’t happy, Cricket Australia says it was after strong ratings for the clash.

TWELVE goals were scored on a night where Melbourne Victory just scraped through to the FFA Cup quarter-finals. Watch every goal from the night’s action here.

THE PFA chief has slammed David Gallop’s “inflammatory” comments after the Socceroos withdrew from commercial appearances in Perth.

PEOPLE thought Lakers star Nick Young was joking when he tweeted the idea of playing for the Boomers. Turns out he wasn’t after taking a major step.

FELLOW German-based Socceroo Mat Leckie said Robbie Kruse’s loan move to Stuttgart will help him rediscover his electric form before his recent injury struggles.
