AUSTRALIAN team chiefs have defended the nation’s athletes over accusations the Commonwealth Games team have turned into “ugly Aussie’’ tourists.

    AUSTRALIA’S chef de mission Steve Moneghetti confirms controversial coach Eric Hollingsworth would be sent home immediately after his Sally Pearson tirade.

    FRANCOIS Etoundi has been stripped of his accreditation and evicted from the athletes’ village for an altercation with a Welsh athlete.

    ERIC Hollingsworth dramatically misread the situation. As a result the last image of him will be rushing out of Hampden Park with his tail between legs.

    YOU name it, it’s probably happened in an athletes’ village, including destroyed washing machines, dangerous rooms, police raids and even a sex den.

    Netballers reach finals

    Jul 03, 2012

    MCC netballers in actionCongratulations to the club's three netball teams - MCC 1, MCC 2 and MCC 4 - who will compete in Parkville Netball Competition’s upcoming autumn finals on July 16 and 17, 2012.

    Last year saw MCC 1 take the A1 premiership title - this season we have upped the ante with three teams making it to finals.

    The three sides have been solid all season, signs that MCC is moving up the netball ranks.

    After a blistering season, MCC 1 have finished third on the ladder in Premier Division 5, MCC 2 have led the A4 Division for most of the season and MCC 4 have done well finishing fourth.
     
    MCC 2 and MCC 4 will be playing their first final on Monday July 16 and MCC 1 will play on Tuesday July 17.

    All games are played at the State Netball and Hockey Centre in Parkville with times to be confirmed closer to the date.

    We encourage everyone to come along and support the teams as MCC Netball continues to step up the tempo as a competitive and social special interest group.
     
    We wish all teams well. Go Demons!
