THE Phil Hughes tragedy has called into question the future of bouncers, but Greg Matthews and Geoff Lawson believe the fast bowling tactic should remain.

ARSENAL defeats Dortmund to secure their place in the Champions League round of 16 while Liverpool has to win its final game after drawing in Bulgaria.

FAMILY and friends of Phillip Hughes have streamed through St Vincent’s Hospital overnight while the cricketer fights for his life.

IT HAS been five years since Tiger Woods was outed for a string of affairs with waitresses and porn stars — and things have never been the same since.

AUSTRALIA have been cleared of deliberately losing following their shock defeat to Angola at the basketball World Cup in September.

Game On!

Some Aussie Rules action in the Game On area of the National Sports Museum.A new, bigger and better interactive hall and a sports cinema are now open at the National Sports Museum.

Game On is a new ‘hands, feet and bottoms-on’ area within the museum. 

It’s an extension of the original interactive gallery, but this time offering a larger range of sporting activities from cricket, football, bike racing, soccer and archery as well as a newspaper “sports-desk” interactive, multi-media screens and a comprehensive list of sporting world records.  

There is also a new netball interactive, designed to inspire young players with images of Australian netballers from the 2008 International Test Series. 

Visitors enter into the area via a portion of the actual running track from the 2006 Commonwealth Games and into a world of action - they can test their own goal kicking skills against AFL players, run out Adam Gilchrist on a virtual cricket pitch, test their hand-eye co-ordination and kick, throw, shoot, ride, race and run to their heart’s content. 

It’s the perfect place for kids (of all ages) to let off steam!
