In rugby league – just three days out from their season opener and Parramatta is stuck “in a staring contest” with their best player, Halfback Mitchell Moses who is yet to re-sign beyond 2023 with a monster offer of A$1.4Million for five years, that’s A$7M on the table from Wests Tigers which dwarfs the Eels deal of A$1.25 million for four years.
In football – Liverpool’s humiliating 5-2 Champions League defeat at the hands of Real Madrid was emphatic proof that the Reds have reached ‘the end of an era’.
After winning two domestic cups last year, missing out on the Premier League trophy on the final day of the season, and losing the Champions League final – to Madrid no less – Liverpool has fallen off a cliff.
They sit eighth in the EPL, have already been knocked out of both domestic cups, and are now all-but-out of the Champions League.
In boxing – Youtuber Jake Paul’s undefeated run has come to a shuddering halt as Tommy Fury defeated ‘The Problem Child’ via split decision, with two judges awarding it 76-73 in his favour and one in Paul’s favour, 75-74.
Fury landed 49 power punches compared to Paul’s 24. He also out-landed the social media star with 88 shots to 49.
Jake Paul had three hair pulls, two face scratches a bitch slap and a handbag whack LOL! See you later Faker!
