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.
England really need a change of plan when the wickets start tumbling, seeing out the 50 overs is surely a must, looks highly unlikely today. Currently 131-6 from 28 overs.
Killed in helicopter crash
First Grand Slam of the new decade but some things haven't changed.
Djokovic 3-0 up against Thiem first set.
A Scotland legend retires. He always seemed so reliable to me, who only watches Scotland matches.
The 34-year-old Clermont scrum-half is second on the all-time points list for Scotland with 714. Laidlaw has led the national team 39 times, more than anyone else, and becomes the third senior...
Iconic figure from my childhood:
Was working a late shift today so had the pleasure of being able to watch Andy Murray kick off Great Britain's Davis Cup campaign this morning with an extraordinary win. He may only have been up against the world no 179 but he was out of sorts and the Dutch lad played out of his skin. The way Andy...
Diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Heartbreaking only 48 or so with young family.
What a player he was.
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.
The t20 World Cup qualifier started in the UAE yesterday. Scotland managed to lose to Singapore by 2 runs in a bit of a shock. 6 teams go through and I think Singapore beat a full member not long ago but not an ideal start. Currently 36/1 after 5 against Kenya, Coetzer our but Munsey is the man in...
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
Anyone else on this forum go out to wet a line now and again?
Ryder Cup golfer Brian Barnes has died aged 74 from cancer after a short illness. He was best known for beating Jack Nicklaus twice in a day during the 1975 match against the United States.
Always remember his reputation for drinking on and off the...
Great performances for gold by Dina Asher-Smith and Katarina Johnson-Thomson.
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...
Good stuff from the ladies. Europe unlucky not to have a better lead at the end of day one. Europe 4.5 USA 3.5
In no particular order although number one is undoubtedly football (and has been been since the day I was born :greengrin)
Currently going for his third US Open mixed doubles title and his seventh doubles grand slam title in total. He's always played in Andy's shadow, but a great career nonetheless. I've always thought that if Andy hadn't become the global star he did then Jamie's status as one of Scotland's most...
Hi, mates. Are here AFL fans? Do you know something about this interesting game?
If yes, what team do you support?
I am a fan of Juventus FC, and if you are too, can suggest you good site with breaking news of Juventus
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...
Announced earlier tonight he is due to return to playing singles next week at the Cincinnati Masters, less than 7 months after having his hip operation.
Fantastic news and really hope it works out for him.
Looks like Egan Bernal is going to win at the age of 22. Nobody will ever know how yesterdayís stage would have panned out if the stage wasnít cut short, but Bernal looked the strongest climber
Julian Alaphilippe has been great entertainment, but a very lucky man to still be on the podium.
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.
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...
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:
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...
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
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...
