As if summer couldnít get any better, we donít just have a cricket World Cup, we have an Ashes series!!! :greengrin
The CWC was outstanding IMO, barely a dead rubber in the previously maligned group games, some cracking head-to-heads as well, especially in the closing stages. The semis were...
No American Triple Crown winner this year then.
Good return to the track by Caravaggio at Naas. I still think he'll stay a mile but O'Brien's keeping him at sprint distances just now. Fav for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.
Who do you fancy for the Open next weekend?
McIlroy is favourite, but I'm not sure he's worth a punt these days.
Paddy Power and Coral are offering 10 EW places, with Bet365 paying 8, but maybe with slightly better odds.
I don't bet much, but I like a small wager on the Open.
Now that all the places have been taken up I Thought it would be better to start a new thread with this.
The Draft: The draft will be an offline draft made on this thread and i will input the players into the appropriate teams once the draft is complete. I think the draft will be the most...
I see this twat has been fined and given a suspended ban for his gamesmanship.
Hopefully it brings him down a peg or two. Erse that he is.
See a few different threads at times about boxing so thought we could maybe have one mega thread?current fights future fights? Any gossip,favourite ever fight/fighters?
I see degale has got his unification match against badou jack should be a good fight fancy degale to win then,dunno where that...
In amongst all the Brexit and Euro election shenanigans, itís worth noting that by this time next week England and South Africa will have completed the first match of the CWC 2019 at The Oval.
Great opening game, with two solid teams. Viral Kohli was commenting today that he thinks games might...
Entertaining match on right now between Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios.
Nadal won the first set 6-3 but Kyrgios has responded well and is currently 3-1 up in the second set.
Things are never dull with Kyrgios and so far we've had a 143 mph second serve, an underarm serve and some brilliant...
To avoid hijacking a thread in the dug out:
Predictions for Hiac?
The club, new day, reigns (unfortunately) banks (unfortunately) and owens (due to either jericho or Hhh)
PGA Sony Open in Hawaii starts tomorrow. Big field and lots of potential winners. A smallish number of top players, large number of tour journeymen and some no hopers mixed into this one. Good luck to anyone else having a bet and for throughout the rest of 2019.
whos looking forward to the season on both accounts then?? What are peoples tips on Play-off contenders and overall winners? Is?
I feel i dont know the teams very well but i will be biased go for The Packers making the superbowl
dont know about the NCAA though :hmmm:
Iíve never really seen a thread on here about the greatest American sport. :wink:
I absolutely love the baseball and itís my ambition to go to a game at some point. Wrigley Field would be my ultimate destination, but I think Iíll have to compromise and head to somewhere where I can take in a...
Anyone into this?
I went to see the Knicks play in New York a few years ago (tourist alert!) and Iíd keep an eye in their results now and again.
I noticed that the season has started back. Does anyone else watch it or have a team they support?
Has anyone played this at Swanston farm or anywhere else for that matter?
Looking for some advice on whether it was any good or not and what footwear you used, they say no blades or studs but then look at pictures which look like folk are wearing studs :confused:
Andy Murray has declared himself fit to play ,drawn against Nick Kyrgios in 1st round . Good to see him finally back . Tough draw getting Kyrgios on his comeback
I'm one of the volunteer ride leader's with the Brewdog Chain Gang cycling club and we're starting up an Edinburgh chapter with rides leaving from Lothian road, just thought I'd share here incase anyone is interested.
These are free, no drop social rides which means we go as fast as the...
Few surprises already in the Province Championships, especially with Cavan beating Monaghan! Been some very entertaining football on show, looking forward to Mayo vs Roscommon next weekend with two very good sides hopefully going at it hammer and tongs. Live on Sky Sports as well
See it's Great Britain this year rather than Scotland/England.
GB team B starting now against Chile. Jayson Shaw in team A.
That was ridiculous.
Embarrassing attempt to cheat, not to put too fine a point on it.
Hard not to support Ireland in the darts
Donít know how to post a picture but they have Hibs tops on
Great day of rugby today for those who enjoy their sportsmen to just get on with playing and not pretending to be injured😀 Just watched NZ cuff France, now Australia v Ireland, England v SA later, Scotland in Canada in the wee small hours. Alloa Rugby Club ball tonight as well. Will most likely...
It feels a bit early to start a Cricket World Cup thread but thereís no shortage of ODIs going on as teams prepare.
I caught the highlights of NZ vs Bangladesh and it was a comfortable if not unexpected win for the home side. Bangladesh are pretty decent but not in the same class and not unlike...
This guy's not your run of the mill tennis player. I'm torn between admiring his originality (eg serving underarm) and shaking my head at the way he fails to make the most of his talent.
Certainly very unusual for a guy on the circuit to put the boot into other players so publicly, although I...
Hi, mates. Are here AFL fans? Do you know something about this interesting game? Here i post my predictions to AFL matches and maybe it will be interesting for you.
If yes, what team do you support?
Anyone been watching this? Iím down in Sheffield at the moment, was at last night semi and at tonights semi. Hoping to see Higgins get into gear on the way to tile number 5.
If Hazel Irvine does her introduction to the evening session where she normally does it I should be in the two seats...
This was mentioned on the ODI cricket thread but thereís a new t20 franchise tournament launching in September with 2 teams each from Scotland, the Netherlands and Ireland. The Scottish teams will be Edinburgh Rocks and Glasgow Giants.
The Scottish leg will feature 10 games at The Grange in...
Sad to see him playing so poorly. I don't think much of him as a person, but as a golfer he was one of the best!
Question - do you ever see him regaining his status as the one to beat? I really don't think so. His swing now has too many 'issues' and his chipping is very poor. Worse than Hunter...
Itís here. Itís the only thing I ever have a punt on. I love a wee interest on it.
Who we all on?
Heres my picks with sky bet. Thy are paying 10 places at those odds.
Fowler win 14/1
McIlroy win 7/1
Casey e/w. 25/1
Molinari e/w 18/1
Koepka e/w 25/1
Leishman e/w 45/1
Hoffman e/w 80/1
Some performance from Kemboy, Gold Cup winning standard. 👏
Got a lot of time for the stage dancers outfits! Hibs-tastic! 😍
Cheltenham starts tomorrow, the showpiece of the jumps racing! Really gutted not to be going this year after 2 amazing days last year. Letís smash the bookies this year! Whatís everyoneís tips? Heard good things for Irish horses Stand up and Fight and Sir Eric. Not a tip but after watching Laurina...
Just about to start
I know, I know itís for egg chasers but I love it!
Had a bit of a nightmare today. Is he on the decline or can he regain his spot as the world's best golfer.
He has undoubted talent, but doesn't seem capable of doing it consistently well for fourth successive tournament rounds.
I hope he can but...
Anyone else enjoy Aussie rules; perhaps some Hibees who now live out there? I'm not into American sports, such as NFL and baseball, but I've really gotten into Aussie rules in the past couple of seasons and have adopted St Kilda (perennial underachievers with one title in their history) as my team...
Due to injury. A different reserve lined up for each week.
Anderson loses to Beaton on his return from injury and MVG loses to Mervyn King.
Bit of long shot I know, I'm looking for a ticket next Saturday should anyone on here know if there's one available.
Decent start by the Windies, currently 123-1 pushing on for halfway through the first day.
A quickfire 44 from debutant John Campbell was a good entrance into Test cricket. The Windies now have Braithwaite and Hope at bat. I really like Shai Hope, he's a great young batsman with huge...
Anyone watching the golf now.
He's got a five stroke lead. He misses the green with his second shot and has what looks a simple chip onto the green. But over hits it and the ball runs over the green past the bunker into the water. He takes a penalty drop and has to place the ball as it's...
Just watched a bit of the wammans final . Osaka is some player , mens tennis has nobody to replace Federer etc but the womens game has a real star with this 1 . She's got Serena Williams power and Simona Halep speed and stamina . 2 slams in a row and still only 21
Nadal Djokovic tomorrow should...
