UNCAPPED Queenslander Joe Burns has beaten former Test opener Ed Cowan to the punch and will play for Australia in the Boxing Day Test.

JUST because Australia is short of batting talent does not mean it should hand out gold passes to players who are struggling to deliver.

MIKE Hussey​ and Jacques Kallis proved class is ageless when they guided the Sydney Thunder to a comfortable win over the Brisbane Heat.

MELBOURNE City’s derby hero Erik Paartalu said his side’s win was a crucial step in bridging the gap to big brother Melbourne Victory.

NATHAN Burns fires Phoenix into top four — and himself firmly into the Socceroos’ Asian Cup frame. Read our Round 11 A-League review.

Seat Saving

Seats must not be saved for latecomers. Attendants are authorised to remove coats, rugs and other paraphernalia used to reserve seats for patrons not in attendance.

Once a seat has been occupied it may, of course, be reserved temporarily while patrons are absent from their seat for reasonable purposes.

It is not practical to have staff on hand in all areas throughout the Reserve to police this regulation, so we ask that you and your guests observe the spirit of fair play.

If you observe any abuse of this regulation, please report the matter to the nearest staff member. Please do not take up the issue yourself.
