AS a nation struggled to process the death of a much-loved cricketer, one man made a simple gesture that soon turned into a global juggernaut.

    UPDATE: Jordan Spieth has produced a scratchy even-par 71 to launch his title defence at the Emirates Australian Open. Adam Scott is now on course.

    TOP owner Lloyd Williams has launched legal action against a vet clinic he claims cost him a golden chance to win his fifth Melbourne Cup.

    STEVE O’Keefe won’t play for Australia in the inaugural day-night Test against New Zealand in Adelaide, but who joins him back in Shield cricket remains a mystery.

    THE NRL, Fox Sports, Nine Network and Telstra are understood to have sealed a historic agreement that confirms the game’s future until the end of 2022.
