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

JASON Day says he’s playing the golf of his life, and these stunning stats back up that claim, as he breaks an 20 year old Aussie record held by Greg Norman.

HUGE decisions will be made over the coming days as Jarryd Hayne discovers whether he’ll be a 49er, and the latest sign is definitely a positive one.
