Nowell stars as Lions brush Chiefs aside

In the backs, a fit-again Owen Farrell is likely to start at fly-half, with Johnny Sexton on the bench, while Elliot Daly made a late claim in the Chiefs match to start on the wing ahead of George North . "We had a massive emphasis in the week with Sanjay and Nowellsey about limiting their attacking kicking game", said Daly. But against the Chiefs the Exeter man finally delivered with a non-stop two try performance. Read More »

S Africa win after Roy's freakish exit

Finally, Roy was ruled out for obstructing the field, which drew a negative response from the crowd at Taunton . A target of 12 off the final over became four off the last delivery after Liam Dawson hit Andile Phehlukwayo for a boundary, but he could not repeat the trick and South Africa had a morale-boosting victory to follow their first-round exit at the 50-over ICC Champions Trophy, with this win achieved despite the absence of coach Russell Domingo, who had flown home after his ...

Philadelphia 76ers: 5 reasons Markelle Fultz was the right pick


Embiid fired the first salvo between the new-look 76ers and Lakers on Thursday night telling him teammate Simmons through social media to dunk on Ball.

#NBADRAFT: Sixers make Fultz top pick, Lakers snag Ball second


Markelle Fultz , Lonzo Ball and the future of the National Basketball Association arrived Thursday night. Who do they have to thank for all this young talent? The 2005 draft was the last time high schoolers could enter the draft. And by the way, it's going to be a lot of fun to argue about this Sixers-Celtics trade for the next decade. When he heard the news that he was working out for the Sixers, Fultz's first thought was about fast-food chicken sandwiches. Read More »

Hirving Lozano strike against Russian Federation puts Mexico into Confederations Cup semis

New Zealand stuck to their task and did not let the quick-fire double deflate them, despite knowing they were staring at their third defeat from three games at the tournament and their 11th in 12 games ...

LSU beats Oregon State 6-1 to reach CWS finals


Without his exploits Saturday, LSU wasn't sure that would be the case. It was one of his best. The right-hander, whose postseason resurgence pushed the Beavers deep into the postseason, allowed four hits and four runs - three of which came on a two-out second inning home run to right field by LSU catcher Michael Papierski .

76ers focused on extending Joel Embiid


In a blockbuster trade days before the draft, the Boston Celtics traded the first pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft for the third selection owned by the Philadelphia 76ers . No other U.S. university player averaged 14 points with six rebounds and six assists a game as well. Tom Thibodeau has enough young players in Minnesota and wanted a veteran like he had during his successful run coaching the Bulls . Read More »

Indian police arrests 15 for cheering Pakistan in champions trophy final

Boston? Phoenix? Duke's Jayson Tatum awaits NBA Draft fate


Jackson accolades would include being named All-Big 12 first-team, Big 12 Freshman of the Year, and AP third-team All-American. In the second round, the Celtics picked up forward Semi Ojeleye from SMU at No. "We anticipate being very active to try to improve our roster". Stars Paul George, Jimmy Butler and Kristaps Porzingis have all been the subject of trade rumors, with many believing George is definitely on his way out of IN after he told the Pacers he has no plans of re-signing ...

No concerns for Gatland if Warburton misses out


However, Sexton has gradually grown into this tour and his partnership with Farrell against the Crusaders has probably encouraged Gatland to have another think about a potential on-field partnership between the two. The Dunedin-based Highlanders , lacking nine frontline players, set out to play the match at a frenzied pace and the Lions resistance to that style was fully tested. Read More »

Did Suns Have Something To Do With Josh Jackson Skipping Celtics Workout?


I had a ball with the Porzingis talk on Twitter yesterday. It was unlikely that Ainge put Tatum or the third pick into play with the Pacers, considering that most believe George ultimately will join his hometown Lakers. On this roster, which is loaded more with depth than stars, he might be 9th or 10th. Jackson is a defense-first swingman who struggles to create his own shot and has an in-progress jumper-the exact same type of player Boston selected previous year in Jaylen Brown . Read More »

Top pick Fultz introduces himself to 76ers fans

The Sixers gave up conditional future draft picks for Pasecniks, a 7-1 center, who could be stashed overseas and continue to develop before he is brought over.

Matt Mitrione Finishes Fedor Emelianenko At Bellator NYC


Mitrione has won all three of his fights in Bellator since ending his last UFC run on a two-fight win streak, but the win against Emelianenko marks the biggest win of Mitrione's MMA career.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez gives one-word reply to question about Bayern

City boss Pep Guardiola has made the signing of Sanchez his number one priority this summer as he continues to mould his first-team squad in his image. The Argentine striker is most definitely amongst the best strikers in the world, but for some insane reason Pep Guardiola sees him as unimportant while he looks to build his own team at the Etihad, and Alexis' arrival will apparently see them slap a £60Million asking price on Sergio's head.

'Ronaldo Won't Leave Madrid For Less Than €1bn'


Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid looked guaranteed after lifting his third Champions League title with the club earlier this month, the Portugal global scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus. Barcelona's Lionel Messi was sentenced to a 21-month jail sentence and 2.09 million euro fine a year ago for tax fraud. For example, tax on any earnings in 2012 could be paid as late June 30, 2013 which would also enable the Spanish tax authorities to look back that far in their records for what ... Read More »

Mexico vs. Russian Federation in 2017 Confederations Cup

Portugal only need a draw to advance (and might do so even with an unlikely loss), so they might take their foot off the pedal if they get a lead early. And they nearly gave themselves a lifeline just before the hour, as Doyle flashed a sensational ball into the six-yard box for Chris Wood , whose eventual effort was crucially blocked by Bruno Alves.
