The Best Thing We Shared

While you were sleeping, Rickie Fowler went within an inch of a hole in one on a par 4.

On The Record

“I went to Portland to speak to Alberto Salazar and demand answers. He reassured me that the claims are false and that he will soon be providing evidence to make that clear.”

– Mo Farah has us waiting with bated breath.

The Fixture List

The European Games continue at pace in Baku, including (among many others) fights for Michaela Walsh and Adam Nolan tomorrow, while Caroline Ryan competes in the cycling road race from 08.00.

There’s tonnes more golf on the way as the world’s best players try not to look like pitch and putt hackers at Chambers Bay. That’ll keep you going late at night.

Early doors tomorrow, Super Rugby’s knock-out stages begin with Highlanders v Chiefs at 08.35. And you can enjoy a second leisurely SuperXV clash in the afternoon; Stormers host the Brumbies in Cape Town at 16.05.


Before we veer away from rugby: Ireland’s men and women Sevens teams are in Olympic qualifier action from 10am. And the Under 20s are aiming to wrap up their World Cup with a win over Scotland in the 7th place play-off at noon.

Speaking of play-offs, Ireland Women’s hockey side take on the USA in a World Hockey League play-off from 10.30.

That’s everything, right? WRONG!

There’s also a truckload of GAA to wade through: London take on Cavan and Waterford host Offaly in the 14.00  SFC qualifier throw-ins with Laois v Antrim (14.30) and Longford v Carlow (19.00) to follow.

The Championship proper takes the form of semi-finals in the Leinster SHC between Galway and Laois (17.00) before Sligo and Roscommon (19.00) tussle in the Connacht SFC.

Showbiz, baby!

We need more rugby players Mic’d up..
