In football – Marcus Rashford continued his hot scoring streak as his two goals in stoppage time helped Man U to a 3-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final victory over Sky Bet League One side Charlton, after Antony’s first-half strike had put United in front.
Meanwhile French Football Federation President, Noel Le Graet has apologised for saying that he “wouldn’t even have taken his call” if Zinedine Zidane rang him about coaching France.
Boy did that backfire spectacularly!
In rugby union – Bristol Wing Siva Naulago 31, is available for the Bears’ Challenge Cup match away to Zebre on Saturday, after recovering from knee surgery and then a hamstring injury. In fact, the Fijian flyer has not featured at all this season.
“Siva Naulago is back finally, so he’ll be available for selection this week,” Bristol’s director of rugby Pat Lam told BBC Radio Bristol yesterday.
In sports Biz – with Qatar spending US$300Billion for the FIFA World Cup plus Saudi Arabia committing US$500B to host the 2029 Asian Winter Games, you gotta wonder about their returns on investment?
Well a recent study of 130 cases in the US where public funds were doled out for investment in sports facilities, events and related infrastructure, shows that in most of these cases, local economies and tax payers got back much less than what was promised in benefits for their tax dollars spent.
In boxing – former unified World boxing champ, Anthony Joshua is plotting his way back into contention and to do so he plans to fight unknown but Top 10 ranked Australian heavyweight, Demsey McKean later this year.
AJ hasn’t fought since his rematch loss to Oleksandr Usyk last August. McKean is unbeaten in 22 fights.
If I were a betting man . . . oh never mind.
Finally in rugby league some BREAKING NEWS – on his way to Papua New Guinea, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has gone nuts!
First he expressed his support for an NRL expansion team based in Papua New Guinea.’
Then Albanese really went overboard by also backing a Rugby League World Cup to be hosted by Australia and some Pacific Island countries.
Is he chewing betel nut again?
