LIVE CHAT FROM NOON: BUCKLE up for what looms to be a cracking Victoria Derby Day at fabulous Flemington on Saturday.

VETERAN batsman Younis Khan swatted Michael Clarke’s men on a road to nowhere as Pakistan set up a drought-breaking series triumph in Abu Dhabi.

I GUESS I’m a fringe Derby Day player this year. But it’s Derby Day, and just being a player is a big deal, when all the jocks have their game faces on.

DAVID Villa was starting to recapture his best form at Melbourne City, what a shame he’s going back to New York, Herald Sun’s David Davutovic writes.

THE stamina reserves of Hampton Court and Sweet Idea have been debated all week but were summarily dismissed by trainer Gai Waterhouse on Friday.

Changes for Carlton-Collingwood on July 16

Jun 23, 2011

Dane Swan evades Bret Thornton at the MCG.With both teams in strong form near the top of the ladder, the club has reviewed the operation of the Members Reserve for the Carlton v Collingwood match at the MCG on Saturday July 16.

As a result of this review, the following changes have been made:

  • The number of reserved seats available for pre-purchase has been increased by approximately 1500. The Reserve will now mirror the seating configuration used for the Essendon v Collingwood (April 25) and Geelong Cats v Collingwood (May 13) matches.
  • View the updated Members Reserve seating plan for this game. 
  • The visitor ticket limit will remain at four per member.  We expect visitor tickets may sell out in advance, therefore members are encouraged to purchase their ticketing/seats as soon as possible.
  • The MCC members’ gates will open at 11.00am instead of the previously advised 11.30am.
  • The match will remain as a Category B game. Therefore, Long Room and Balcony passes will be available under those conditions.  Applications open on July 4.
  • In addition to the usual allocation on the middle two levels, seat tickets will also be distributed for walk-up seating on Level 1 for this match.
