The Tittle Tattle:

Scott McDonald, Carl Valeri, FourFourTwo stars go Nearpost, Rugby League a flop?, Ticket Sales, Melbourne Victory

Scott McDonald, Celtic's prolific scorer has done it again. Facing his old club Motherwell McDonald equalised before Celtic's Greek star Samaras scored the winner. McDonald's side are 8 points ahead of Rangers, but the Gers have 4 games in hand.

With Rangers having one eye on the UEFA Cup final, McDonald may just sneak a title medal in a few days time. Well as a one-eyed Celtic fan, here's hoping.

Carl Valeri's Grosseto side were winning 1-0 on Saturday about to gain some valuable points, when the game was abandoned. Reports say a policewomen on duty outside the ground shot herself, apparently committing suicide. The game was then stopped.

Nearpost Radio: FourFourTwo's recent magazine had a 'stars of the future' section. Two of the possible future stars are Jason Naidovski (Newcastle Jets) and Canberra's Kofi Danning. Both are on the Nearpost radio this week

Rugby League Friday night TV ratings are lower than Midsummer's Night Dreams and Better Home and Gardens. The Sun Herald seemed stunned that the Friday game, despite all the promotion on the media, regualarly attracts less than 20,000 people and always than 400,000 viewers in a city of 4 million.

I'm not that surprised:)

Ticket Sales: And for the Centenary Rugby League Test only 6,000 tickets have been sold. Melbourne Victory are already reporting sales of 40,000+ for the Juve friendly.
