PHILLIP Hughes’ tragic death rocked Australian cricket to core, but the popular batsman would have been proud of his former teammates for their courageous summer.

    AUSTRALIAN captain Michael Clarke arrived at the MCG on Sunday an hour before the team bus even rolled out of the hotel.

    ONE of the Hunter Valley’s leading thoroughbred studs is expected to complete the purchase of unbeaten Golden Slipper winner Vancouver this week in a deal which values the colt at more than $40 million.

    AMID Michael Clarke’s fairytale it was easy to forget that it was another odds-defying fighter who will go down in the record books as man-of-the-match.

    JAMES Faulkner was man of the match while some big name Kiwis went missing in a one-sided World Cup final. See how every player rated.

    MCC Kew Sports Club

    In August, 2012 the MCC commenced a long-term partnership with Kew Heights Sports Club (KHSC), including upgrading the KHSC facilities – including lawn bowls, tennis and the clubhouse – located at 397 Barkers Road, Kew.

    Through the MCC Foundation, MCC invested approximately $4.5 million in upgrading the KHSC facilities.

    KHSC has been renamed MCC Kew Sports Club, with the newly-named club being responsible for managing the improved facilities on a day-to-day basis.

    Ownership of the Barkers Road site has been transferred to the MCC Foundation and a lease established between MCC Foundation and MCC Kew Sports Club.

    The new facilities, now completed, are of great value to existing KHSC members and especially for MCC members and the community, many of whom are on the waiting list for MCC membership.

    Membership packages and casual visits are now available.
