Knights vs Broncos Live

Broncos coach Anthony Seibold has admitted to some regrets at granting a request from 260-game hooker Anthony McCullough to leave the club and sign with Newcastle.

McCullough’s invaluable experience and leadership would have been a boon for an undermanned and young Broncos side that’s gone 0-3 since the resumption of the NRL.

Now, as McCullough’s Knights prepare to welcome his old club this Thursday night, Seibold admits with the benefit of hindsight that having his old rake could have helped.

The decision to grant McCullough’s release was followed by an inopportune injury to first-choice hooker Jake Turpin, leaving the inexperienced Cory Paix as the only viable No.9 left on the roster.

“A lot of that was driven from Macca, he wanted an opportunity to go and start in the number 9 somewhere. Obviously at our club he was behind Jake Turpin in that position,” Seibold told reporters on a Tuesday press call.

“When Turps hurt himself a week later you have some regrets in hindsight but ultimately it was the right thing for Macca and our club at the time.

“Some decisions you get right, some decisions you get wrong.

“Macca asked the club for a release and we thought at the time with Jake starting at 9 and Cory we had that position filled but ultimately Turps broke his (leg) one week later.

“You make decisions you think are best for the player the person and the club at the time.”

The Broncos have been able to bolster their hooking stocks during Turpin’s lay-off by this week signing veteran Kiwi rake Isaac Luke, who was granted a release from the Dragons after just 150 minutes playing in the Red V.

“I just thought for that position to bring in who’s played 270-odd games and 50 or so for New Zealand… it was a good fit for Isaac and a good fit for us. He can help Cory Paix while Jake Turpin’s out,” Seibold added.

“We’ll name him in our 21 but he only arrived on (Monday) afternoon.”

Juventus vs Napoli Live

The first trophy of the Italian soccer season is up for grabs Wednesday when Juventus and Napoli square off in the Coppa Italia final in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.

Juventus reached the final after overcoming AC Milan in the semifinals, while Napoli defeated Inter Milan. The semifinal second-leg matches were played after the season was put on pause following the outbreak of the coronavirus.

The teams come into the final a little rusty after the hiatus. In their scoreless draw (Juve advanced on away goals after the series ended 1-1 on aggregate) last Friday against AC Milan, Juve showed flashes of brilliance. The attacking duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Pablo Dybala had a solid 30 minutes, but the team looked disjointed for the remainder of the match.

Ronaldo’s missed penalty was a highlight of failure, but defender Matthijs de Ligt ensured that the backline swept away any AC Milan threats.

Napoli, meanwhile, managed a 1-1 draw (advancing 2-1 on aggregate) on Saturday at home, thanks to striker’s Dries Mertens’ goal (he is now the team’s all-time leading scorer) and goalkeeper David Ospina’s outstanding saves in the waning minutes.

The Coppa Italia final will be played with no fans because of coronavirus restrictions. The game will go directly to penalties should it end in a draw.

Juve and Napoli are longtime rivals, something that stretches back decades and reached a crescendo during the 1980s when the Partenopei became title contenders. The Bianconeri, however, have historically been the best team in Italian history. Although Napoli fell on hard times starting in the mid-’90s, the rivalry again intensified in the 2010s with Napoli’s 2-0 victory against Juventus in the 2012 Coppa Italia final.

The Coppa Italia final between Juventus and Napoli will be broadcast live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes. Live streaming is available on ESPN+, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscriptions, either online or through the ESPN+ app.

Man City vs Arsenal Live

Manchester City may not have a lot to play for in the coming weeks if Liverpool wrap up the Premier League title quickly, but that won’t stop Pep Guardiola from demanding perfection against Arsenal this week.

City are 22 points behind the rampant Reds in the title race which could be wrapped up within two games of the restart.

However, City are still in the hunt for Champions League glory and will use the Premier League as a testing ground to hone their skills and fitness ahead of the European return.

Arsenal have everything to play for under Mikel Arteta. The Gunners boss got off to a slow start but has steadily improved their fortunes and strengthened hopes of a late charge for a Europa League spot.

Arteta will expect a gutsy final push to turn a transitional season into a successful one.

Blues vs Hurricanes Live

Super Rugby Aotearoa is here and sport is back with crowds in New Zealand after the coronavirus pandemic.

The revamped Kiwi competition’s second match will take place at a packed Eden Park when the Blues host the Hurricanes on Sunday afternoon.

After his move to Auckland, Beauden Barrett is set to finally make his Blues debut and against his former side, the Hurricanes.

Where: Eden Park, Auckland

Kick-off: 3:35pm, Sunday

Referee: Mike Fraser

NZ TAB odds: Blues $1.50, Hurricanes $2.45

Blues: Beauden Barrett, Mark Telea, Rieko Ioane, TJ Faiane, Caleb Clarke, Otere Black, Sam Nock; Hoskins Sotutu, Blake Gibson, Tom Robinson, Josh Goodhue, Patrick Tuipulotu (c), Ofa Tu’ungafasi, James Parsons, Alex Hodgman. Reserves: Kurt Eklund, Ezekiel Lindenmuth, Marcel Renata, Gerard Cowley-Tuioti, Dalton Papalii, Fin Christie, Harry Plummer, Matt Duffie.

Team news: Beauden Barrett gets the nod at fullback for Blues’ season opener against Hurricanes

Hurricanes: Chase Tiatia, Wes Goosen, Vince Aso, Ngani Laumape, Ben Lam, Jackson Garden-Bachop, TJ Perenara (co-c); Gareth Evans, Du’Plessis Kirifi, Reed Prinsep, Scott Scrafton, James Blackwell, Tyrel Lomax, Dane Coles (co-c), Fraser Armstrong. Reserves: Asafo Aumua, Tevita Mafileo, Alex Fidow, Isaia Walker-Leawere, Vaea Fifita, Ardie Savea, Jamie Booth, Billy Proctor.

Team news: Ardie Savea back for Hurricanes after 33-week rugby hiatus

The big storylines

– Super Rugby Aotearoa: Ticket sales in Auckland, Dunedin top 50,000 for reopening weekend

– Blues star Beauden Barrett lapping up the Dan Carter influence

– Black Lives Matter: Hurricanes halfback TJ Perenara adds voice to anti-racism movement

– Hurricanes confirm Jordie Barrett out of Super Rugby Aotearoa clash with Blues

– Hurricane warning: Beauden Barrett knows what’s coming from old mates in Blues debut

Prediction: Blues win by five. Before the wider Super Rugby competition was halted due to Covid-19, the Blues were in good form and sat second in the five-team Kiwi conference, five points ahead of the Hurricanes in fourth. Their previous meeting in Wellington this year was a dour contest won 24-15 by the Blues on March 6. However, it was memorable because the Hurricanes were briefly reduced to 12 men on a night of wretched ill-discipline. After a three-month break, the two sides clash again and the Blues, buoyed by Beauden Barrett’s long-awaited debut and a large Eden Park crowd, will shade the Hurricanes.

Highlanders vs Chiefs Live

Super Rugby Aotearoa is finally here.

Ten weeks of bone-jarring Kiwi derbies, starting with the Highlanders hosting the Chiefs under the Forsyth Barr Stadium roof in Dunedin on Saturday night.

Will Aaron Mauger’s southerners put their miserable form earlier this year to bed, or will the Warren Gatland-coached Chiefs continue the rot?

Where: Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin

Kickoff: 7.05pm, Saturday

Referee: Paul Williams

NZ TAB odds: Chiefs $1.33 Highlanders $3.10

Highlanders: Mitch Hunt, Sam Gilbert, Rob Thompson, Sio Tomkinson, Jona Nareki, Josh Ioane, Aaron Smith, Marino Mikaele Tu’u, Dillon Hunt, Shannon Frizell, Pari Pari Parkinson, Josh Dickson, Siate Tokolahi, Ash Dixon, Ayden Johnstone. Reserves: Liam Coltman, Daniel Lienert-Brown, Jeff Thwaites, Manaaki Selby-Rickit, Teariki Ben-Nicholas, Kayne Hammington, Teihorangi Walden, Vilimoni Koroi.

Chiefs: Damian McKenzie, Shaun Stevenson, Quinn Tupaea, Anton Lienert-Brown, Sean Wainui, Kaleb Trask, Brad Weber (capt), Pita Gus Sowakula, Lachlan Boshier, Luke Jacobson, Tupou Vaa’i, Mitchell Brown, Nepo Laulala, Samisoni Taukei’aho, Aidan Ross. Reserves: Bradley Slater, Ryan Coxon, Ross Geldenhuys, Naitoa Ah Kuoi, Dylan Nel, Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, Aaron Cruden, Etene Nanai-Seturo.

Prediction: 27-24 Highlanders. There is no better time to tip an upset. Nobody is giving the Highlanders a chance, not after their putrid showing pre Covid-19, when they won one of five (completed) games to sit 13th on the ladder. They’re so unfancied the NZ TAB is offering $31 for the Highlanders to go all the way. For context, the Hurricanes are fourth favourite at $7. But if ever there is a time to back them, it’s round one under the lid, in front of what’s sure to be a big crowd, against a Chiefs side without skipper Sam Cane, and one which should be rusty.

Charles Schwab Challenge preview

Back when the Players Championship was canceled after the first round in early March, no one knew when we’d next see live PGA Tour action. But ever since the revised schedule was announced in April, golf fans have been patiently waiting for the season to officially kick back into gear at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Played at iconic Colonial Country Club in Texas, this year’s tournament will feature an abnormally star-studded field thanks to the coronavirus-induced layoff. World No. 1 Rory McIlroy will be there, along with the next four players beneath him in the Official World Golf Ranking: Jon Rahm, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson.

It will be the first major sporting event to occur since the shutdown began, and millions of people will be tuning in on TV and online. Below you can find out how to watch the Charles Schwab Challenge, along with complete first round tee times.

2020 Charles Schwab Challenge basics

What: Charles Schwab Challenge
Where: Colonial CC, Fort Worth, Texas
When: Thursday-Sunday, June 11-14
Purse: $7.5 million ($1.35 million winner’s check)
Last year’s champion: Kevin Na

How to watch Charles Schwab Challenge on TV

Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Live

Bayern Munich will be relying on the red-hot strike partnership of Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller to steer them past Andre Silva’s Eintracht Frankfurt and into a third consecutive DFB Cup final on Wednesday evening (kick-off 8:45pm CEST/7.45pm BST/2:45pm ET).

Match stats

  • Lewandowski has three DFB Cup goals this season, one behind leader Rouwen Hennings. The Poland international could now become the first player ever to finish as top scorer in four consecutive seasons.
  • Manuel Neuer is one away from equalling Oliver Kahn’s DFB Cup record of 33 clean sheets. The current Bayern skipper has even played 16 games fewer, not conceding in 62 per cent of matches – a competition record.
  • Should Bayern win without the need for a penalty shootout, Thomas Müller will join Sepp Maier and Gerd Müller at the top of Bayern’s internal standings for DFB Cup games won (47).
  • Hinteregger scored a brace from corners, as well as an own goal, in Frankfurt’s 5-2 loss at Bayern just 18 days prior to this semi-final.
  • Eintracht’s sole victory at the Allianz Arena came in the DFB Cup but against 1860 Munich in the 2005/06 quarter-finals (3-1). They haven’t beaten Bayern in the Bavarian capital since November 2000 (2-1).
  • However, Frankfurt did beat Bayern 3-1 in the 2018 final in Berlin to lift their fifth DFB Cup title, exacting revenge for the 2006 final where Claudio Pizarro scored the only goal of the game for the Munich club. Marco Russ featured in both of those matches.

Probable line-ups

Bayern: Neuer (c) – Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies – Kimmich, Thiago – Gnabry, Müller, Perisic – Lewandowski
Out: Coutinho (ankle), Mai (ankle), Süle (match fitness), Tolisso (ankle)
Doubtful: Cuisance (gastroenteritis)
Coach: Hansi Flick

Frankfurt: Trapp – Toure, Abraham (c), Hinteregger, N’Dicka – da Costa, Rode, Kohr, Chandler – Kamada – Silva
Out: Kostic (suspended), Fernandes (calf), Paciencia (thigh)
Doubtful: –
Coach: Adi Hütter

Stevenson vs Caraballo Live

WBO featherweight world titleholder Shakur Stevenson goes up in weight to face Felix Caraballo in the main event of a Top Rank Boxing card on Tuesday at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas. The fight will air live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes at 7 p.m. ET.

Stevenson (13-0, 7 KOs), of Newark, New Jersey, fought four times in 2019: a fourth-round TKO victory over Jessie Cris Rosales in January, a unanimous decision against Christopher Diaz in April, a third-round KO victory against Alberto Guevara in July and a unanimous decision over Joet Gonzalez in October to win the vacant title. Stevenson was scheduled to defend his belt against Miguel Marriaga on March 14, but the fight was canceled the day before due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Caraballo (13-1-2, 9 KOs), of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, has won five consecutive fights — three by stoppage — since a close decision loss to Pedro Marquez Medina more than two years ago.

To follow social distancing guidelines, ESPN boxing commentator Joe Tessitore will call the fight from the Bristol studios, with former world champions Timothy Bradley Jr. and Andre Ward and boxing analyst Mark Kriegel providing commentary from their respective homes. Reporter Bernardo Osuna will conduct interviews from Las Vegas.

Nunes vs Spencer

The UFC is in Las Vegas for Saturday’s UFC 250 pay-per-view event. In the main event contest, two-division UFC champion Amanda Nunes puts her featherweight title on the line against former Invicta FC 145-pound champion Felicia Spencer. UFC 250 takes place at UFC Apex.

Nunes captured the women’s bantamweight title in July 2016 with a first-round submission win over Miesha Tate. In her first title defense, Nunes knocked out former champion Ronda Rousey in 48 seconds. In her next title defense, Nunes earned a decision over current flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko. Nunes successfully defended her belt a third time in May 2018 with a knockout win over Raquel Pennington.

Nunes moved to featherweight in December 2018. She faced then-featherweight champion Cris Cyborg in that matchup. Cyborg had not lost a fight since her 2005 debut. She was 20-1-0-1 heading into her matchup with Nunes. The bantamweight champ put a second loss on Cyborg’s record in 51 seconds via knockout.

Nunes has defended her bantamweight title twice since defeating Cyborg. Nunes’ matchup against Spencer is her first attempted defense of the featherweight crown.
