    UK VIEW: The Australian squad for the Ashes has been named. The English media have had their say. It’s fair to say they’re quaking in their boots.

    BOXING legend Muhammad Ali has revealed who he will be supporting in next month’s Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather super fight.

    TOTTENHAM winger Andros Townsend came off the bench to steal the limelight from club-mate Harry Kane with a late leveller in a 1-1 draw against Italy in Turin.

    DEFENDING champion Mick Fanning has been pitched into a sudden-death round-two encounter at the Rip Curl Pro after finishing a close second in his heat.

    THIS is what it is like to play golf with Michael Jordan; if you’re good, and can sustain the trash talk, there is lots of money to be made.

    Templeton appointed women's head coach

    MCC Team of the Century wicketkeeper Robert Templeton has been appointed head coach of the fledgling MCC women’s cricket team.Former MCC wicketkeeper, and now inaugural women's coach, Robert Templeton.

    The club is poised to field at least one team in the Victorian Women’s Cricket Association Premier competition next season.

    It is the first time in our history that we will be represented in women’s cricket.

    Templeton joined the Demons from Hamilton in 1980 and, within two seasons, had impressed enough to earn a Victorian cap in two first class matches.

    Despite a useful 40 against the touring Englishmen and eight dismissals in those two games, he was dropped and returned to Premier Cricket where he established all sorts of keeping records over a 20-year career.

    Templeton played in five MCC First XI premierships  and, in 302 matches, effected 671 dismissals, an all-time record which is unlikely to be surpassed. He headed the season aggregates for keepers four times, twice making 10 dismissals in a match.

    Templeton's hard-hitting batting late in the day provided many tiring opposition bowlers with headaches and his batting record, with two centuries, 17 half-centuries and an average of 27.32, is very respectable.
