    MCLAREN driver Fernando Alonso awoke in hospital believing it was 1995 and unaware that he was a F1 driver following his high speed accident in Spain.

    THE dream has begun. South Sydney’s bold journey toward rugby league history started successfully with a dominant display against the Broncos.

    MELBOURNE City is about to embark upon a week that will make or break its finals charge as they battle with Brisbane for sixth position on the A-League ladder.

    MELBOURNE Victory must sacrifice playing an entertaining brand football and turn draws and match-winning leads into wins ahead of the A-League finals.

    NEXT week's Australian Formula One Grand Prix has already hit a roadblock with a dumped driver taking his team to court to demand a spot on the starting grid.

    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
