Blues beat Reds 39-16 in Super Rugby Blues beat Reds 39-16 in Super Rugby
- July 02, 2018

We didn't show smarts with how we approached it. "For me, it's hard, I was a physical player - it's an interesting place". "In saying that, our set piece was excellent". The Blues were awarded a penalty early in the first half when Perofeta's kick went terribly wrong. Another strangely passive and mistake-ridden opening from the home side - skipper Kaino's first act after running through his guard of honour with sons Grayson, 2, and Kobe, 6, was to drop the kick-off - was soon ...

Her baby is ready for the tournament to start too. She wants other women to know that breastfeeding does not make one lose weight. She thinks it's unfair she gets drug-tested more than other players. It's weird, you know. "I actually thought the article was interesting, to be honest, because I never knew that I was tested so much more than everyone else", said Williams, who is in search of a record-tying 24th Grand Slam singles title.

- July 02, 2018

The short term deal buys the Raptors a little to decide where they want to go at the point guard position. The most obvious possibility would be to do something with Carmelo Anthony and his $27.9 million expiring contract. Of course, rumors pointed to Paul George signing with the Lakers, too, and that didn't happen. That also lent to some optimism for the Cleveland Cavaliers, whose general manager Koby Altman reportedly spoke with James and his agent Rich Paul minutes after free agency ... (more...)

- July 02, 2018

Guard Fred VanVleet, a restricted free agent, will return to the Toronto Raptors after agreeing to a two-year, $18 million deal, according to multiple reports. VanVleet would be a valuable addition to any team and turned the corner as an important part of Toronto's bench in 2017-18. VanVleet made a relatively paltry $1.3 million last season, when he averaged 8.6 points and 3.2 assists per game, often joining Lowry and DeRozan on the court in crunch time of close games. (more...)

- July 02, 2018

Toney Penna was the last Italian to win on the PGA Tour in 1947. Molinari matched the 18-hole course record with the lowest final round by a US PGA victor this season, his career low on the American tour by two shots.

Speaking to Britain's Sunday newspapers he said, "Maybe if I'd played against Belgium and didn't score, I'd be thinking, "I didn't score in the last game". If you want to be the best team in the world you've got to beat the best teams. Lingard never got to play a competitive match alongside Falcao, with the attacking midfielder ending the 2014-15 season on loan at Derby as he recovered from a knee ligament injury sustained on his United debut.
