Laddie not happy as was going with his work. Soft ground with expected damp wet weather predicted so decision made yesterday.
Anderson pumped 9-3 by Barry Linn.
MVG just threw 177, 170 check out then a 9 dart leg, then a 180, brilliant darts.
Signed for Manchester in Fenruary next year.
Absolutely massive fight, arguably the biggest British/Irish fight in a decade or more. Unification bout for 2 legitimate world titles, definitely going to try and get to the one.
So the opening day has come and gone (I didn't bother starting this during Spring Training and the WBC as I've otherwise been busy) the past 2 days and the Summer sport is underway (if only the weather would now join it - looked positively freezing, particularly in Minnesota last night!). Houston...
See that Joshua's next fight has just been announced as Charles Martin the IBF champion that won it when Fury was stripped of it, I've only seen the guy box once so can't claim to know much about him, hopefully it will be a good fight
Anyone been watching this? 10 minutes, 1 frame takes all.
Haven't watched it all but I'm quite enjoying it, shame Gilbert lost after an excellent frame on the first day.
Second semi final about to start on ITV4
Starts this morning, How do we think it will go?
Think Anderson is out so this is a massive blow and I reckon SA will win this test.
As always, I'm looking forward to the Australian Open starting, which begins at 12am on Monday UK time.
Andy Murray looks to have a pretty decent draw on paper. The highest seed he'll play before the quarter finals is Bernard Tomic, which won't be a problem for him. He starts against the German...
to be shown on Dave.................does that mean we'll get repeats for the next 15 years!? :wink:
Heading to Ascot Races in September.
Anyone been ? Going to go for Premier Admission tickets which are the dearest without going for hospitality. Seem cheap at £35 as normally pay £50 for County Stand in York. What is the best bar to head for and how far in advance of the first race should we...
Hadn't seen it advertised.
Just going radge in ring after deontay wilder k.o'd his brave opponent who was stretchered out of the ring.
classy stuff tyson
And we are off.
Anderson on tonight.
Watching BBC Scotland sports news and it had Gary Anderson darts champ, as it's lead item. Got me thinking, Pub game or a sport ?
For me it will only ever be a pub game.
Hard to believe that Fantasy Football is almost over for another year. As many of you know there is already a Hibs.net fantasy league that has been operating for a few years now. There was some interest shown earlier this year and we might have enough to have more than one league, and that is what...
I'll guess in advance.... BOOM!
Anyone watching this?
Neil Robertson just got a 147 break in the final against Liang Wenbo.
He leads 4-2 overall.
Thoughts on this everyone?
I think Aus will win but got good odds on drawn series so stuck a small bet on it. Was at the cricket at Yorkshire the other day but don't have a ticket for the Ashes.
Klitschko pulls out injured. I'm quite disappointed, was looking forward to Fury getting knocked out.
The Hibees win the Joe Davis cup final in Gent 3-1
Well done the Murray brothers :thumbsup:
Section 43 were amazing too :wink: :greengrin
Schedule has been announced for the final tomorrow, think the first match will start around 12:45 - 1pm
Davis Cup final draw
David Goffin v Kyle Edmund; Ruben Bemelmans v Andy Murray
Forgot to post last night, great win for Anderson v Taylor in the first round, 6-5, Phil forgot to sign the back of the board again :-)
Not everyone's cup of tea I know, but the new Winter Biathlon World Cup Series starts this Sunday with a Mixed Relay in Sweden - you can catch it live on Eurosport at 2:30pm.
Biathlon really is a great sport to watch and one of the few that give equal billing to the men and the women. Please...
The season ending Championships at the O2 in London begins today with Novak Djokovic taking on Kei Nishikori this afternoon and then Roger Federer takes on Tomas Berdych tonight.
Tomorrow Andy Murray starts his campaign against David Ferrer at 2pm and then Stan Wawrinka plays Rafael Nadal at...
Shocking news that possibly the greatest ever rugby player has died suddenly aged just 40. A colossus of a player.
Set for April if Joshua beats Whyte in December regardless of whether Fury wins or loses against Klitschko.
Eddie Hearn confirmed in an interview with Boxing News.
He went all out to rip him a new one. :greengrin
Sad news about Pat Eddery dying at such a relatively young age. Absolute class act and was by far my favourite jockey when I followed racing when younger.
Golden Fleece and El Gran Senor stick out. You always knew your money was safe when Pat came cruising along about 2 out.
Just to say that Monarchs capped a run of three away victories last night by beating Somerset comprehensively 51-42 to go 5 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a match in hand over Glasgow. Cook, Sedgman, Riss and Wolbert majestically magnificent.
Current holders of all three...
We have a public holiday here for the Melbourne Cup today. It's about the only time I bet on the nags. Picked my horses - as did the wife and kids - and put $1 each way on each horse.
Whilst at the betting agency I see Prince of Penzance was in the green and white (and mauve) and thought maybe $10...
Not really an egg chasing fan but will take an interest in what is happening in the World Cup until at least Scotland get knocked out or someone beats Engerland. (Commentators do my head in and I am sick of hearing they won the World Cup once.)
I see our first game is tomorrow afternoon against...
... Dr William Gilbert Grace died. Possibly the first modern sporting superstar, probably the greatest all-rounder in the history of cricket, and the man whose "financial opportunism" made the Ashes what it is. Equally at home in the bookmakers' tent as at the wicket, he could have written the...
Extra tickets available. Fairly sporadic now but there none the less.
What's the predictions? Britain 3-2 for me.
Used to love watching this guy playing for the Racers. Stunned he's still been playing at that age!
I didn't know much about this guy until reading the build up to his fight last night which he was very impressive in.
The suggestion is that neither Cotto or Froch would be particularly keen to fight him and so he may face Andre Ward next.
Any boxing fans on here seen more of him than me?
What do you think is Scotland's (or someone who is Scottish) greatest sporting moment. Ideally, it should be a winning moment, but it could also be a moment of sportsmanship!
Scotland rugby - Grand Slam 1990
Scotland rugby - Grand Slam 1984
Andy Murray - Wimbledon 2013
Sandy Lyle - Masters...
Lots of boxing coming up, enjoy.
Nothing to do with football, nothing to do with Hibs, but HUGE well done to Wales for beating the English against all the odds. Just shows you what can be achieved in the face of adversity.
Just noticed that Brian Close has died - former England, Yorkshire and Somerset captain and a very fine opening batsman.
Brave man - stood up to Andy Roberts and Michael Holding without all the padding and headgear they wear nowadays.
