Aussies coming 6th were not disgraced by any means (6 teams below us) - but the opposition was VERY strong. A big win over the USA was perhaps our highlight.

Well done to Japan for a good win of the Competition.

Cincinnati Reds opened up their wallet on Monday and signed Mike Moustakas to a four-year contract worth $64 million. A native of Los Angeles, California, Moustakas will be joining his third Major League Baseball team. He has previously played seven and a half seasons with the Kansas City Royals and a season and a half with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Poor old NRL mightn't quite be up to this.
