1. #CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Shamrock Rovers will take a slender one-goal lead to Estonia next week.

Chris Turner scored the only goal of the game against FC Tallinn last night at Tallaght, minutes after the visitors failed to convert a penalty in their Champions League clash.

2. #BRITISH OPEN The world’s top golfers will finalise their preparations on the final day of practice at Sandwich today.

We plan to liveblog all four days of action – please send tea and other non-perishable food stuffs.

In the meantime check out some of our retrospective stuff – like this, when Tiger was good.

3. #LE TOUR After Monday’s rest day, we were back in the saddle yesterday for stage 10 of the Tour de France. And what a result it was.

My buddy Mark Cavendish was beaten on the line by André Greipel in a bunch sprint in Carmaux.

Today? Well today sees the sprinters enjoy a flat 167.5km from Blaye-Les-Mines to Lavaur. I guarantee you Cav will win (don’t quote me on that).
