Ireland Can Get the Job Done

England, France and Ireland all have a chance of winning the tournament heading into the final round of fixtures, while an entertaining game between Wales and Scotland is also on the cards. Ireland have the luxury of having their fate in their own hands, with Andy Farrell’s men knowing a bonus-point win – which is scoring four tries or more – will guarantee the title, while they could still win the crown with a four-point, non-bonus-point win. While Ireland have not scored four tries in

Bluebirds Can Get Back to Winning Ways in The Capital

One team that will be concerned by their recent run are QPR, who have failed to win any of their last seven matches and find themselves just two points outside the relegation zone. Tuesday’s 3-0 defeat at previously winless Barnsley highlighted the R’s current problems, with Robert Dickie now suspended after the defender’s red card at Oakwell. Cardiff are the visitors to Loftus Road on Saturday and Neil Harris’ men head to London on a run of five games without defeat – one win and four d

Hamilton Targets More Success in Italy

Formula 1 makes a long-awaited and poignant return to Imola this weekend, with the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari hosting its first Grand Prix since 2006. By Owen Goulding. For many, this will be an opportunity to pay respects to Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger, who lost their lives at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Imola is a circuit quite like no other. An old-school track, it is anti-clockwise and is not much different to a rollercoaster. Drivers will be leavin

Real Madrid Hoping to Build on El Clasico Success

Zinedine Zidane’s men lost back-to-back games against Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk earlier this month, but they responded well by beating rivals Barcelona at Camp Nou last weekend. In midweek, they managed to rescue a draw against Borussia Monchengladbach after being 2-0 down and confidence will be high ahead of Saturday’s battle. Real Madrid have won their only two La Liga games against Huesca, with both coming in the 2018/19 campaign. Since Zidane stepped into the dugout, Los Bla

Injury-Hit Reds Offer Hammers Hope

Saturday has the potential to be a day of surprises in the Premier League as Sheffield United, Burnley and West Ham look to claim the scalps of three members of the so-called ‘big six’. In the pick of the fixtures, David Moyes bids to end his Anfield hoodoo when his in-form Hammers side take on a Liverpool team that have been far from convincing in recent weeks. In 15 previous visits, Moyes hasn’t tasted victory once but his team have played well enough in recent matches to suggest they

Usyk Ready to Dispatch Chisora

Usyk is making the move up to heavyweight, while Chisora has been seen as the gatekeeper to world level for some time. There’s no doubt that the Ukrainian has the superior skill set and the advantage in terms of boxing ability but the question is can Usyk bridge the gap when it comes to size and weight?

UFC Fight Night: Hall vs Silva Preview

The UFC has bid adieu to UFC Fight Island (at least for now) and are back in the U.S. of A for this weekend’s UFC Fight Night: Hall vs Silva. It’ll take place back at their home gym in Las Vegas – the UFC APEX. And, speaking of adieus, someone will (allegedly) be saying goodbye to the octagon on Saturday night. The someone in question is much more than just a someone – he is the legendary Anderson ‘Spider’ Silva, the UFC Middleweight Champion from 2006 to 2013, and one of the names on the sh

Tyson Fury: The Rise of the Gypsy King

Tyson Fury may be something of a marmite figure in the boxing world, but love him or hate him, you cannot deny he is one of the best pound for pound fighters in the sport. Early Promise Went Under the Radar Fury turned professional in 2008 on the back of winning the ABA super-heavyweight title earlier that same year and he quickly made light work of his early opponents, winning his first seven fights via knockout inside the opening four rounds.

Strong Winds Could Play Havoc in Bermuda

Last year’s inaugural Bermuda Championship was a walk in the park for the PGA Tour competitors, with Brendon Todd closing with a 62 to reach 24 under par, but this week’s edition seems set to be played in tougher conditions. Strong winds are forecast for the final three days of competition, so punters are best advised to support players who have shown they can handle the rough stuff. The Port Royal course is short – at just over 6,800 yards – but can still cause problems when Mother Nature c

Cyprus Open: Punters Sweat on Resurgent Sullivan

Andy Sullivan ended a long winning drought in the middle of August and, as a result, the Midlander gets top billing in the betting for this week’s Cyprus Open. Sullivan, who won three times on the European Tour in 2015 and went on to play for Europe in the Ryder Cup, spent a while in the golfing wilderness before winning the English Championship at Hanbury Manor. The emphatic nature of Sullivan’s latest success – victory by a seven-shot margin – earned plenty of plaudits and he is just 1

The Royals have made a stunning start to the new campaign, picking up 19 points from their first seven games.

What Makes the US Masters So Special?

The Masters has been a cornerstone of the golfing world since its inception back in 1934, but just what is it about the August National Major championship that makes it one of the most loved tournaments around?

Rules Must Change to Stop Football Becoming a VARce

2020 has been a pretty miserable year for most. However, the resumption of professional sports has at least given some respite from the seemingly never-ending series of lockdowns and curfews caused by the Covid pandemic. The Premier League matches taking place in front of empty stands certainly detracts from the spectacle, and many would like to see at least some fans allowed back into the stadiums. That seems like a faraway ambition right now, but for those of us watching at home the situa
