Sport shorts - 2 July

  • The weekend saw the Second test between the All Blacks and Lions. I was lucky enough to attend the game in Wellington. The atmosphere was awesome, even if the All Blacks fans were a little quiet. In terms of the game, Sonny Bill Williams send off certainly made it difficult, as did Barrett's inaccuracy with the boot. The All Blacks attack was a little disappointing creating few chances. The Lions certainly made the most of their opportunities. On the send off - I don't think the referee had any choice. Bring on the third test. 
  • The Swans are now 7-7 and in this incredible season while they sit ninth are only one game from 5th. If they keep winning being in the eight is a distinct possibility. 
  • Looking forward to a few games this weekend.  The Hawthorn-GWS and St Kilda-Richmond games are the two I'm most looking forward to aside from the Swans-Suns. 
  • Perhaps no surprise but with another big win, the Storm firm as competition favourites. 
  • The Warriors let another lead slip - leading Manly 16-0 before losing 22-26. 
  • Manly and St George are my surprise packets for the year both doing better than I expected. 
  • Wimbledon started this week and I'm looking forward to following the twists and turns of the tournament. 
  • Confederations Cup - Germany was impressive through the tournament, and were deserved winners,
