BAD light stopped play at the Gabba, but not before Steve Smith played a captain’s knock to help Australia work its way back into the contest.

IT was the stuff of which dreams are made. Australian substitute fielder Marnus Labuschagne has taken an incredible short leg catch in the second Test.

KEVIN Pietersen is set to earn up to $250,000 for his summer down under in the Big Bash — but is the star batsman worth the cash? Have your say!

MELBOURNE have pulled off their biggest signing coup of the off-season, attracting rising young Bulldogs forward Dale Finucane after a release was agreed.

IT has been a big year at What The Fox with plenty of streakers, crushing knockouts and temper tantrums — and these are the stories you liked the most.
