AUSTRALIAN team doctor Peter Brukner says Phillip Hughes remains in a critical condition at St Vincent’s Hospital. Get the latest news here.

ANDREW Bogut and the Golden State Warriors have extended their winning streak, while fellow Aussie Cam Bairstow was an NBA starter for the first time.

SEAN Abbott and fellow grief-stricken NSW players have gathered at their Moore Park office on Wednesday morning to be counselled on the Phillip Hughes incident.

THEY have a new name, new colours and some new fancy players, but Melbourne City’s results so far this A-League season remain very Heart-esque.

MELBOURNE Victory’s admission in to the Victorian National Premier League competition next season will see it open their doors to dozens of youngsters.

MCC XXIX Club

MCC XXIX Club logoThe XXIX Club was formed in 1956 by a group of MCC senior players of the day. 

The objective was to foster cricket generally, but particularly in the country, by playing mid-week and Sunday games in addition to the normal Premier Cricket fixtures.

The concept was so successful that it is now celebrating its 56th year and the club is still flourishing with a membership in excess of 300, a fixture list of 15-20 games each year, and every two years or so an overseas tour.

In recent years XXIX Club teams have visited England, south-east Asia, Canada, Singapore and Thailand. Everyone should go on at least one XXIX Club tour; they are highly recommended as a nice blend of holiday and cricket.

Another major activity each year is the XXIX Club Annual Dinner, which is traditionally held during AFL Grand Final week in the Members Dining Room and is always an outstanding success. 

The list of guest speakers over the years reads like a “Who’s Who” of Australian cricket, with legends such as Lindsay Hassett, Richie Benaud and Bill O'Reilly featuring in the early years and notables such as Greg Chappell, Mark Taylor, Adam Gilchrist and Kerry O'Keefe in contemporary times.
