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...
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:
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...
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)
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...
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?
Great winning performance from Anderson v Michael Smith, 108 average.
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. 😳
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.
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.
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...
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,...
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.
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.
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...
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.
Having critisised other countries for making playing too restrictive, Djokovic organised his own tournament and has ended up with the virus along with three others who took part. :rolleyes:
Got one coming this week , Soft tip dartboard that cost £300 ! Never played soft tip before so looking forward , You can play against folk online as well as the computer very handy in these testing times when you can't leave the house
Anyone on here got a Nexus dartboard ?:kdarts::kdarts:
As the title suggests. I may argue the toss with anyone who refutes that Jonty Rhodes was the best ever fielder.
I guess there is a difference between slips and other positions. Rhodes wasn’t a slip and Alastair Cook probably deserves a mention, but slips have a certain advantage, in terms of...
The Ashes 2005 : The Greatest Series, well worth a watch on All4.
I know there's an ongoing thread on the go but this deserves a thread of its own.
He has just won the title in Antwerp against Stan Wawrinka, coming from a set down to win in three sets.
I've actually no words to accurately describe how impressive this guy is and the way he has come back from...
See details below.
A scottish rugby legend and a guy I had the pleasure of knowing has sadly passed away.
Michael Smith has just hit a 9 darter.
I think Wales will win it again this year.
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...
England taking a pumping at the start of the first game, poor fielding not helping either - SA 68-1 from 6 ovs.
