Kildare’s Andriu MacLochlain has a few choice words with referee Cormac Reilly after yesterday’s game in Croke Park between Dublin and Kildare. The man in black was centre of attention as he adjudged the Kildare corner back to have fouled Bernard Brogan in injury time resulting in the winning point. Dublin move forward to play Wexford in the Leinster Final while Kildare must go down the qualifier route
The Copa Libertadores final between Brazilian club Santos and Uruguay’s Penarol erupts into a mass brawl moments after the final whistle. The Santos celebrations were cut short as both teams exchanged punches and kicks until police stepped in and intervened. The flair up reportedly kicked off after a Santos fan entered the field and started provoking Penarol’s players. Our picture shows Chelsea target Neymar lashing out at a vulnerable Penarol player… And Pele claims the Premiership will not suit the young Brazilian prodigy as it may be too physical for him… I reckon he’ll be able to hold his own!!!
By the looks of Bethanie Mattek – Sands, she didn’t know whether she was going to Wimbledon or a fashion parade. The American supported an extravagant jacket that was frilled and doused in white tennis balls, along with black stripes on her cheeks. Unfortunately her tennis didn’t match her outfit as she was knocked out by Japan’s Misaki Doi in three sets.
They might not be receiving the same viewing figures as their US counterparts CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, but RTÉ’s own version of the hit series, CSI: the Sunday Game, has gained a cult following throughout the GAA over the years causing much debate and even greater controversy. This summer has been no different and in the past month alone we’ve been subject to both ‘Twittergate’ and ‘Carthygate’. Although the latter wasn’t technically induced by the Sunday Game, it does make one wonder which inter county star ‘Sheriff Cahill’ and his “Deputies” will be gunning down next??? Donegal got a lashing
Russia’s Vitalia Diatchenko shows her physique during yesterday’s action at Wimbledon. Unfortunately for the 20 year old she was beaten by Slovakia’s Daniel Hantuchova in three sets.
Yesterday saw the commencement of Wimbledon and there were no real surprises at the All England Lawn Club with all the favourites coming through unscathed. Our picture shows ninth seed Gael Monfils retrieving his racquet from the crowd in his straight sets victory over Germany’s Matthias Bachinger.
There was only one winner today… Rory McIlroy put his nightmare final round at Augusta behind him to produce a near flawless display to lift the US Open last night. Twelve months after fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell lifted the title McIlroy posted a monumental 16 under to win by 8 clear strokes from Jason Day. The first of many we hope! Move over Tiger…..
AND THEY’RE OFF… However it’s not the jockeys at the starting line!!! Punters got more than they bargained for during yesterdays racing at Royal Ascot. A mass brawl erupted within a posh champagne bar on the course which left on-lookers running for cover. Our money was firmly on the gentleman weilding the chair leg to come out on top…
On day two of Royal Ascot, a jubilant Frankie Dettori does his famous “flying dismount” after steering Rewilding to victory in the Prince of Wales Stakes. Celebrations were abruptly halted however as he was given a nine-day ban for excessive use of the whip.
