New Zealand betting agency TAB has put up cheeky billboards for the Irish rugby team touring New Zealand in July. One billboard simply says: “0 wins in NZ”. Another one says: “Think the flight was long? Try a 28-year unbeaten streak at Eden Park”. While another says: “4 Kiwis in the team. That might help your odds a little.”
Geez I hope the All Blacks win.
All the smaller Pacific Island nations playing international rugby league against each other this weekend – Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the Cook Islands have named teams stacked-full of NRL stars and it only costs A$10 for adults to watch these Tests, compared to F$30-185 for Fijian Drua home games.
I’m never gonna give up on that rip off.
How about this for a sports headline – Ronaldo Wins In Cycling!
That’s right – Ronaldo Singh made history yesterday as the first Indian cyclist to win a silver medal in a continental tournament finishing second in the sprints on the final day of the Asian Track Championship in New Delhi.
Japan’s Kento Yamasaki won gold and Kazakhstan’s Andrey Chugay won the bronze.
Cricket is shrinking – from five day test cricket, to 50 overs in a one day game, to twenty overs in the lucrative Indian Premier League, and now Cricket West Indies is launching a new T10 tournament in August – so just 10 overs per side.
In the NFL – Tom Brady’s favourite Tight End, apart from his supermodel wife Gisele’s I guess, er Rob Gronkowski is hanging up his cleats after ten seasons in the NFL winning four Super Bowl rings, rushing 9,286 yards for 92 touchdowns plus making a stash of cash just hanging around fellow Patriot Tom.
