IT was expected to bring the magic and the FFA Cup didn’t disappoint - with 32,00 tuning in on Fox Sports and many more on social media.

PETER Siddle insists he’ll soon be bowling the 140km/h that will put him back in the baggy green

AWESOME. That’s the only word I can think of that adequately describes my first-ever 24 Hour race, in Belgium last weekend, writes Craig Lowndes.

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!
