IN a cruel twist of fate for felled fighter Bethe Correia, Ronda Rousey has hammered a final, brutal nail in the coffin after her resounding victory at UFC 190.

SHAUN Marsh’s maiden first-class ton was the best innings Steve Waugh had ever seen from a 19-year-old. So why is Marsh’s potential just starting blossom?

IAN Healy and Shane Warne believe Australia could face a mass clean-out of their playing ranks if they fail save the Ashes series at Trent Bridge.

MICHAEL Clarke took a page straight out of the Wayne Bennett or Kevin Sheedy playbook after Australia were mauled in the third Test at Edgbaston.

TO be attacked once was bad luck, but a stunned Mick Fanning has been captured on 60 Minutes moments after confronting another shark in the surf.
