THE genius of Johnathan Thurston has finally had its way with a grand final, willing the Cowboys over the finish line in a golden point thriller.

IT was perhaps the greatest game of rugby league ever played. But who stood up under the pressure and who cracked when it mattered most?

IMMORTALITY awaits Cowboys champion Johnathan Thurston. And it waited until the last, last moment, writes PAUL KENT.

BRONCOS coach Wayne Bennett slammed the golden-point concept, believing grand finals should not be decided by an extra-time shootout.

THERE was hysterical sobbing and total disbelief — and that was from the winners. Don’t miss Robert Craddock’s take on an epic grand final.


How to join the MCC membership waiting list

In order to be placed on the MCC membership waiting list, the candidate must complete a nomination form and submit it to the club with an accompanying fee.

Effective March 1, 2012, the nomination fee is $110 (incl. GST).

Nomination forms require the signature of both a proposer and seconder that must be Full members of the Melbourne Cricket Club.

Club rules do not permit Restricted members to propose or second nominations.  Unfortunately the club is unable to provide names of Full members to support applications for nominees for the MCC waiting list.

In accordance with the club rules, it is the responsibility of the candidate to obtain two Full members to propose and second their application. Please note, no additional fees will be incurred until an offer of membership is made.


Please note that when a nomination form is sent in the post, payment can be made with credit card (Mastercard or Visa only) or via cheque or money order made out to the Melbourne Cricket Club.

When paying in person, all methods of payment are available including EFTPOS and cash.

If you require any further information, please email the club.
