AUSTRALIA were a bunch of has-beens after the first Test, lords of the game after the second. Now? Perhaps closer to the former than the latter.

AUSTRALIA slumped to one of the darkest days in the Darren Lehmann-Michael Clarke era as England dominated the opening day of the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

SOUTH Melbourne’s return to the national stage has been cut short in gut-wrenching fashion, losing an epic penalty shootout to Palm Beach Sharks at Cbus Super Stadium.

THE decision to effectively end Brad Haddin’s career has polarised former Australian greats, but Rod Marsh is adamant selectors had no other choice.

A former A-League goalkeeper has been stood down from Wednesday night’s FFA Cup action after posting a Tweet calling for Adam Goodes to be “deported”.

Non-Event Day Dining

One of the lesser-known privileges of being a MCC member is the opportunity to avail yourself and your guests of the top-notch function and dining facilities on offer at the MCG on non-event days. 

Members can book fabulous locations such as the Members Dining Room, Long Room or Bullring Bar for private functions with a touch of class. Please note that use of the Long Room for private functions requires approval from the MCC Committee.

An excellent a la carte luncheon is served in the Committee Room on Level 2 of the Members Reserve, adjacent to the Long Room, on all weekday non-event days.

And while you're here, why not treat yourself and your guests to a visit to the National Sports Museum, featuring some of the finest artefacts, people and moments in Australia's sporting history.
