Anyone else been watching the snooker? The QF Higgins v Ronnie just now is a frightening standard. Shaping up to be a classic. Címon John!
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...
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:
Just a few hours until India and South Africa set off on a three-Test series that should have an impact for both sides, depending on the outcome.
Changes for India, with Bumrah unfortunately injured, although they have a couple of more than decent pace men to complement Ashwin and Radeja with...
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.
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)
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...
It is nearly upon us. The usual suspects(Wright, Price and Van Gerwin) will be the favourites but it seems more open than ever. Just outside the big 3 you have Michael Smith, van den Burgh, Peterson, Aspinall, Anderson, Wade, Durrant,and de Sausa as potential winners. Also the likes of Heta and...
Good documentary available on the iplayer, not sure how long for.
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 gets underway tomorrow.
What's people's thoughts? Who's going to challenge the Ineos "Grenadiers"?
I have a wee sneaky feeling about Carapaz. I know he's supposed to be there to support Bernal, but it wouldn't be out of character for Sky/Ineos to change horses mid-race.
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.
What a performance from Butler and Malan as England completed a clean sweep in the T20 series against South Africa tonight. That sets them up nicely for the three ODIs , first one on Friday.
Maybe not the right place for it but huge crash at the start of the F1. Grojeanís car cut in half on the barrier and burst in to a ball of flames. Yet he walks away with what appear to be minor injuries. Incredible.
Very high standard being set on day 1 (live coverage on ITV4).
Started today on Sky sports arena. Rob Cross beat Justin Pipe and Chizzy beat Luke Humphreys in the first 2 games.
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?
Who you fancying? Tiger at 30/1 always worth a punt at Augusta. Dechambeau favourite but fancy Justin Thomas myself 👍
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...
Great winning performance from Anderson v Michael Smith, 108 average.
Khabib greatest of all time.
Followed by GSP.
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...
Andy Murray has a tough start to his French Open campaign against Stan Wawrinka.
Currently 4-1 down, first set.
Anyone see him on breakfast TV this morning? He looked pissed or drugged, but certainly nowhere near right enough to get anywhere near a boxing ring. 😳
Sorry if already posted, but this deserves a thread, or possibly a whole forum, to itself:
Sad to hear of the death of Dean Jones at the age of only 59.
I wasnít into cricket seriously until I spent three months travelling in Australia in my late teens. In Australia, depending on where you stay, your ethnic background etc, you might be into Aussie Rules, rugby league, rugby union,...
Just finished watching this having recorded it on the TiVo box about 6 weeks ago. First half covers the rise of England's Test team to number one in the world and the second half deals with the mental side of the game. It's a fascinating watch. It was on BBC2 but, doesn't appear on the iPlayer...
Anyone see it today? Vinales jumping off his bike at 140mph as his brakes failed 😲
Great restart race of 12 laps won on the last corner in a 3 bike contest. Brilliant stuff.
Andy Murray starts his tournament against Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan. The match has not long started and is live on Amazon Prime.
Tremendous comeback from England to take the first game by 2 runs.
Anyone tried calculating their handicap using the new system? Iím in a really long poor run of form. Frightening.
Its astounding how much Friday night rugby has taken off in Glasgow. I attended their match v Munster a couple of weeks ago and was impressed with both the set up and general atmosphere at Scotstoun stadium. The game was a total sell out and match tickets are becoming increasingly difficult to...
Looking at taking a few golf lessons and wondered if anyone had any recommendations for Lothians/Edinburgh area. I've never had a lesson before so wouldn't know where to start.
Andy Murray's playing his first competitive tennis for 9 months just now as he plays Francis Tiafoe at the Cincinnati Masters.
Currently 5-5 in the first set, it's live on Amazon Prime if anyone's interested.
Anyone been watching so far?
It started yesterday with some fans in attendance but from today it's behind closed doors after the UK government banned spectators from attending any live events.
They haven't followed football's lead by playing fake fan noise so it's a bit weird just having...
Off to a flyer with the games tonight. All the games were decent, but the final match between MVG and Klassen was the highlight. There was no handshake at the start or at the end, they obviously donít like each other and MVG confirmed that in his interview. Klassen could and should be a top ten...
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...
Anyone else watching the BBC's greatest men's Wimbledon finals in history?
2008 final on just now between Federer and Nadal - in my opinion the greatest tennis match ever played.
Can't believe it was 12 years ago now!
Died aged 66.
Bit before my time in a playing capacity although heard him plenty of times as a commentator.
It didn't sound good yesterday when it was announced he was suffering respiratory problems and had to be placed into an induced coma.
