It’s almost the weekend, which means it’s almost time to strap yourself to the couch with a shit load of tinnies and start watching some sport.
Cos we’re Victorians, lets start with some AFL. There is a couple of interesting games this round to keep an eye on. North vs Port should be a corker of a game, can the Roo’s break the Powers unbeaten run? Collingwood vs the Saints, can the Saints find form and smash the Pies? We doubt it, but it’ll be good to see Luke Ball back on the field for the Pies. Finally, last year’s preliminary final rematch, the Crows vs the Hawks. The Hawks are playing really well this year and well the Crows aren’t. The Crows don’t really have the same side as last year, but you can bet your bottom dollar, this will be one hell of a great game to watch.
Super Rugby news and Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has said that Israel Falou is a certain starter for the Wallabies against the British Lions. This will make Israel a duel international and we couldn’t be happier for Israel, even though, I’d like to see him back playing League for the Storm again. In other news, Kurtley Beale is set to make his come back against the Chiefs this Friday night for the Rebels. Good Luck Kurtley, we are hoping you have a blinder.
In the NRL, the poor old West Tigers with all their injury worries, can welcome back their massive superstar and New Zealand Captain, Benji Marshall. He just tweeted that he will be back to face the Bulldogs. The timing couldn’t have come any better, the Bulldogs are just finding form and the Tigers will need Benji if the are to have any hope of winning.
To Cricket and finally the selectors have got something right and selected George Bailey as Vice Captain for the one day side for the Champions Trophy. I thought George should have been in the squad to take on the poms in the Ashes. So lets hope he has a great Champions Trophy, then maybe he can make his way into the Ashes squad. He really should be in the Ashes squad, he did just lead Tasmania to another Sheffield Shield win this year.
Finally we’ve just gotta say, we love you Lizzie!
