In rugby – Los Pumas got close 20-22 deep into the second half, but then the Springboks crept away with their superior forward power too much in the end with monstrous Hooker Malcolm Marx crossing for a try converted by 35-year old tubby Francois Steyn – remember him? Boks 36-20 Argentina.
In rugby league – the NRL has confirmed details of the first ever semifinals of the NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership to be played at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday 25 September: Newcastle Knights will play St George Illawarra Dragons and reigning Premiers Sydney Roosters will face Parramatta Eels.
In boxing – So Canelo beat GGG in their trilogy fight by unanimous points decision in Las Vegas yesterday. The Mexican took home US$65Million made up of guarantees and a pay-per-view bonus with the 40-year-old Golovkin not too far behind pocketing US$43M.
In football – David Beckham paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II by joining the long queue to see her lie in state and waited for over 12 hours to pay his respects with the general public. He was happy to greet fans who recognised him when he joined the line at 2am and bought everyone doughnuts.
