The first Super Rugby match of last weekend was a cracker between Chiefs and Crusaders. Chiefs lost the match although could have secured a draw if Sonny Bill didnt go it alone in injury time when there was a huge overlap out wide. Still, they top of the log with the losing bonus point they gained and the Crusaders stay in the play-offs with the 28-21 win.
The Sharks are prowling again after smashing the Bulls 32-10. What a game! Brilliant atmosphere and great crowd signing Ole Ole Ole Ole when they scored that oh so important Bonus Point! I just hope this will not be too late for their playoff chances.
It was with some effort though that one could finish watching the Stormers and Cheetahs (won 13-6 by Stormers) game without catching up on a bit of sleep. Sure the conditions were tough. But this is Super Rugby. Seriously, and the dead boring and ‘GEESless’ commentary didn’t help matters either.
The Lions really played well in the first half and last few minutes of the 2nd. This game was all about pride for them and they got exactly that by beating the Rebels 37-32 in the end.
Wow great stuff Federer!!!
Everyone was writing him off but he is back to number 1 in the world again. Even Murray was so happy for Fed that he just could not contain himself and shed tears of joy for his competitor. Such good sportsmanship. Maybe gingers do have souls after all…
After the first set there were some obvious doubts for Federer, but once the rain came down that was it for Murray. The roof closed and so did the game on him…
What awesome scenery we had again on The Tour de France, beautiful landscape, alpine mountain peaks, lush greens forests, awesome little towns… oh yes… and there were some racing too!
Pinot, the Frenchman took Sunday’s stage giving the French something to shout about even though this stage was won in Switzerland. He was the youngest stage winner in the tour in 22 years – that is something!
Best of on the weekend:
