STAR Australia paceman Mitchell Johnson says he is seriously considering quitting limited-overs cricket to extend his Test career.

GOLF bad boy John Daly still finds ways to have fun on the course. His latest stunt needs to be seen to be believed.

MARK Bosnich says there’s a new mood towards the AFC Champions League at the moment - and that all three A-League sides are capable of winning it.

THE Dragons have called on the NRL to give them the two competition points after Monday night’s siren blunder. Paul Kent blogs live from 1pm.

Members receive Australia Day honours

Jan 30, 2012

Victorian Governor Alex Chernov was among 24 club members recognised in this year’s Australia Day honours list.

Mr Chernov was appointed Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) for his contribution to education and the judiciary.

He worked as a barrister before he was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1980. Mr Chernov became a Supreme Court judge in 1997 and was elevated to the Court of Appeal the following year.

He was elected deputy chancellor of the University of Melbourne in 2004 and became chancellor in 2009.

The club congratulates each member on their achievements and recognition.
