Read said on Friday. But he set the record straight when grilled on the topic on Friday. New Zealand-born Lowe – recalled after being dropped for March’s Guinness Six Nations win over England – set the ball rolling by diving over in the left corner just four minutes in. Jones was set to play in a record-equalling 148th test against Scotland in the Six Nations in March but the match was postponed at the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently on his first-ever Scotland overseas tour, he is in Vancouver preparing for the match against Canada which will be held in Edmonton a week today. The Wales-Scotland match is now scheduled for Oct. 31 in Llanelli, where Jones is expected to equal the mark. Head coach Farrell could not have wished for much more from his side’s opening match of the month but they will face a far more serious…

12 Messi is once again the scourge of Manchester City as his goal in the Nou Camp sets them on course for a 2-1 second leg win, wrapping up the tie comfortably 4-1 on aggregate. Manchester United must be kicking themselves after Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane revealed that he chose not to join the club in 2011 due to their purchase of Phil Jones. In Argentina, Ford returned to being the main man, calling the shots and kicking all his goals. After a patchy season, George Ford was magnificent in both Tests and as his confidence came flooding back it is noticeable how his goal-kicking returned to true Test-match quality. With Saturday’s win over Argentina in Santa Fe for a 2-0 series win, the England coach has brought down the curtain on another excellent season, the only blemish being that Six Nations defeat in Dublin. Joe Launchbury continued where…

Statistically I think that playing against the most transcendental player in history will be no easy task. The national squad, called the “Bokke” in the Afrikaans language, became an international power with a playing style that emphasises raw physicality, brute strength and strict discipline. Coach Gerardo Martino was asked if he would change the way he does things, the country’s style of play, just to get a result. Meyer’s predecessor Peter de Villiers, the first and so far only non-white Springbok coach, who helped propel the team to the top of the rankings during an uneasy 2008-2011 tenure, told Reuters some of the country’s best-performing players were black, but were not being given a chance to shine. Juan Antonio Pizzi, La Roja’s coach, acknowledged Messi’s threat in his pre-match press conference. Chile know it and are preparing to combat his threat, just as they did in the 2015 final when…

So, today I want to look back to that famous game and I will start with Argentina. For this edition of “Flashback Friday” I want to go way back to the 1990 World Cup in Italy. While the 1990 final is best forgotten, I want to turn my attention to the first game of this World Cup, which featured one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history. But diehard fans who want to snap up the full range of replica kit and branded items will need to put a large chunk of cash aside – for the full collection will set supporters back more than £3,000. Yankee Stadium has always been known for its World Series banners, but now it’ll be recognized as a place where the people of the surrounding community in the Bronx can receive the vaccine doses that they need and deserve. This World Cup was…
