    AUSTRALIAN legend Ricky Ponting is leading the charge in a radical push to eliminate a time-honoured tradition that has shaped the course of Test cricket. There will be no excuse for losing the Ashes again.

    MELBOURNE City will today unveil veteran English Premier League keeper Thomas Sorensen as their final visa signing of the A-League season.

    RONDA Rousey will headline UFC 193 in Melbourne in November and while many celebrated the news others were less impressed.

    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.

    The Official XXIX Club Song

    XXIX Club founding member Ian 'Doc' McDonald (left) with XXIX Club song author Doug ReidThere is a tavern at the ground, at the ground,
    Where XXIXers sit around, sit around,
    ‘Mid pints of beer and camaraderie,
    And talk about the MCC.

    Happy hours of reminiscing,
    Not a single stroke is missing,
    As the runs and wickets tumble from their memory,

    Good friends, the game will live for aye, live for aye,
    As long as XXIXers play, IXers play:
    So lift your glass and drink with throttle free,
    To Cricket and the MCC.

    Doug Reid – 1962
