Beckham Takes UNBELIEVABLE Touchdown Catch

You're unlikely to see a better catch than this!

The commentator says this ‘might be the greatest catch i’ve ever seen in my life’.

And who are we to disagree!

Watch as New York Giant Odell Beckham Jr. somehow holds onto this pass from quarterback Eli Manning.

Unbelievable!

Let's see that again...

Memories of Gary Moorcroft's 2001 Mark Of The Year in Odell Beckham's spectacular NFL grab today?

The MCC is considering changes it’s membership rules to reduce it’s lengthy waiting list and allow additional restricted members.

There are more than 103,000 members, another 233,000 waiting to join and the waiting list growing by more than 10,000 each year.

The Club say that unless action is taken, a person who joins the waiting list today will wait more than 40 years before receiving a membership offer.

To combat the huge waiting time and make the most of under-utilised facilities the club is considering electing additional Restricted members over the next 5-10 years (with no more than 10,000 in any one year).

You can read more about the potential changes on the MCC Website.

Sport's Greatest Ever Bridesmaids

We take a look at the best of world sport's second-best

(Image: Getty)

After Red Cadeaux finished the Melbourne Cup in second place for the third time in four attempts on Tuesday, he got us thinking about who the greatest ever bridesmaids in world sport are. 

Check out our list below. Have we left anyone or any team out?

(Image: Getty)

- Collingwood was unsuccessful in nine grand finals (losing eight and drawing one) in a 32-year drought between their 1958 and 1990 premierships. The Pies’ incredible run of failure led to the birth of the famous ‘Colliwobbles’.

- Manly lost the first five grand finals (1951, 1957, 1959, 1968 and 1970) they were involved in before tasting the ultimate success for the first time in 1972. 

Everton finished second in the English Football League First Division five times between their first and second titles in 1890-91 and 1914-15.

Greg Norman might have won two British Opens but things could have been so much different for the Great White Shark if he converted a few more his EIGHT second placings at majors into victories!

(Image: Getty)

- Stuart MacGill was one of the most talented spinners Australia has ever produced, but unfortunately for him his career happened to coincide with arguably this country’s greatest ever bowler – Shane Keith Warne. Still, MacGill took 208 wickets at an average of 29.02 in 44 Tests.

(Image: Getty)

- The Buffalo Bills lost four consecutive NFL Super Bowls between 1991 and 1994. Ouch! They are still searching for their first title.

- After winning the 1954 NBA title, the Minneapolis/Los Angeles Lakers lost a staggering eight finals series (in 1959, 1962, 1963, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969 and 1970) before finally scaling the summit again in 1973.

- The Washington Generals have lost more than 13,000 games against their perennial tormentors the Harlem Globetrotters.

(Image: Getty)

- AFL coach Ross Lyon has had a pretty tough time of it in grand finals. From four attempts at claiming the premiership cup with St Kilda and Fremantle, he has lost three and drawn one.

(Image: Getty)

- NRL coach Brian Smith is also a hard luck story when it comes to grand finals. None of his appearances in the big dance with St George (1992, 1993), Parramatta (2001) or the Roosters (2010) yielded him the desired result.

(Image: AFL Media)

- When it comes to AFL players, Renee Kink is THE bridesmaid. The man dubbed ‘The Incredible Hulk’ featured in six grand finals – five with Collingwood and one with Essendon – and did not taste victory in any of them! In all, his grand final record read: five losses and one draw.

Brad Wing, 23, became the first Australian ever to throw a pass in the NFL, when a botched Pittsburgh Steelers extra-point attempt turned into a successful two-point conversion after punter Wing tossed a pass to Matt Spaeth against the Baltimore Ravens. Watch the video below.
