Just back from yet another fantastic weekend of Rugby League at St James Park, Newcastle. The Magic Weekend truly is magic (if you enjoy rugby league). Six games over two days, fans mixing before, during, and after the games, two days of glorious sunshine. Superb value for money.
Sorry if already posted, but this deserves a thread, or possibly a whole forum, to itself:
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...
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.
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:
Looking to start taking the kids back as they enjoyed it precovid. Has anyone been back since they switched from the racers and has much been done in way of development to the ice rink?
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...
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)
No particular order here, because you canít compare between sports obviously. Maradona, Tiger, Senna, OíSullivan, Babe Ruth.

Good start this afternoon for Team Europe v Team World as Casper Ruud beats Jack Sock and Stefanos Tsitsipas beats Diego Schwartzman to put Europe 2-0 up.
Things looked good v Andy Murray v Alex De Minaur as he won the first set but De Minaur took the second set to force a championship tiebreak....
Finally forced to call it a day:
Greatest of them all IMHO.
First round in 4 months yesterday as Englandshire finally got its act together.
Pleased to report a net 69 / 39 points and a win for me in the first Wednesday Sweepie :cb Top golfer in a field of over 100
Body broken with Deep Heat, Deep Freeze and co-codamol needed this morning!
In Glasgow next week. Filling up fast but some reasonably priced tickets available to watch some top players.
In the run up to the US Open it looks like we'll be spared the drama that we had earlier this year with regards to Novak Djokovic's participation at the Australian Open
He has announced that he cannot travel to the USA due to being unvaccinated and therefore won't be taking part in the...
I think this might be just the start of sport being cancelled.
One of my favourite two weeks of the year is almost here and the excitement is building after the draw has now been made.
Despite the controversy surrounding this year's tournament before a ball has been served, due to the All England Club's decision to ban Russian and Belarusian players from...
Brilliant Glory Kickboxing card earlier, and the chat about Boxing had me wondering if there's anyone in here with a shared passion for other combat sports such as these two? Admittedly im a bit of a geek and watch most events I can, its cracking entertainment.
I just donít get it. Iíve been watching it all night tonight and itís a dreadful spectacle. So many people I know absolutely love it but Iím not seeing what they are. Most of the time itís grappling on the deck.
Is this nonsense or the future of humanity? Iím very pessimistic for the future of our species. The climate crisis and the current obviously supported rise of extreme right politics robs me of any optimism. Capitalism, in its current unfettered form, is utterly destroying us. The mega-rich are...
Just beaten Robin Haase in 3 sets in Rotterdam . I didn`t see first set which he lost 2 - 6 but in terms of movement and attitude he looked much better than the last time I saw him in Roland Garros . Played 5 matches in Challenger in Italy , 1 in Montpellier last week and now at least 2 this week...
Eve Muirhead retires, some career she's had and will be a huge miss, she certainly goes out on a high
and still only 32

Terrific performances by Duncan Scott in the swimming this evening. Doesn't seem to get the wider credit he deserves as one of Scotland's finest sportsmen.
Iím not sure if thereís ever been an F1 thread on here before so I thought Iíd start one.
Its the Austrian GP this week. A track that tends to favour cars with less power and a decent chassis. Iím a huge fan of Max Verstappen and I think heíll win for a second race in a row. Mercedes will always...
LIV Golf seems to be gaining momentum and it seems it is here to stay. Every other day we hear about possible defectors from the PGA and DP tours. If they already have the requisite 48 players/12 teams of 4, playing 54 holes, how will the original format be maintained? They wonít stop trying to...
Seeing footage of the new stadium it says thereís now a 499 person stand that is effectively a few rows of seats where the old main stand used to be. Does anyone know if there are any plans to put more seating in? Or are we no longer going to be able to host major athletics events any more?
Andy Murray just starting against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Not expecting too much here, if Murray wins a set he'll be doing well.
Dan Evans has just beaten Thiago Monteiro in 4 sets.
Murray is live on Amazon Prime for anyone who is interested.
Great first 1/4 final so far
Wright 4-1 after the first mini session v Van Den Bergh, 5-5 after mini session 2.
It started today with a TT in Denmark.
Reckon Pogacar will yet again be the man to beat but Roglic and his team co leader, Vingegaard, will also fancy their chances
Canít see Ineos challenging those guys but hopefully Thomas and Yates put up a good fight
Runs this year from Sunday 10th July till Sunday 17th , Any idea why it's on for a week when all other majors run form the Thursday to Sunday lasting 4 days ?
England 6-2, Roy and Root out without scoring.
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
When England get it wrong they get it wrong big time, 84-5 after India scored 416 in their first innings.
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?
NZ 2-2 at the start of the first test match. Both caught by Bairstow and bowled by Anderson.
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...
England 1-1 at the start of match 1, Jason Roy bowled by his cousin!
Were Wade and Smith really that overjoyed whenever they won a leg v Czech Republic? Gerwyn Price would even be embarrassed with that. 😲
Surprised SDG hasnít started a thread yet :greengrin
Early days with the big matches to come in the menís singles.
I remember last year at Wimbledon saying I enjoyed the womanís game more as they were more competitive. Scratch that, Iga Switek is on a 29 match winning streak and looks...
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...
