    Comment


      Idk why I thought the hockey was women's.

        Number of changes you have used so far, max 4 (though this year hasn't really been a non-runner fest so they've been less utilised)

          Unlucky - India led early but Belgium won 5-2 with late goals putting a gloss on it. Belgium v Australia hockey final.

          Poland (3 picks) just beaten in the volleyball qf. Interesting that the first 4 in group B all won their quarter-finals against the first 4 in Group A.
          Anyone on USA (5th in the 'good' group) can probably feel hard done by the group draw.
          Only Brazil of our selections still left in Thursdays semi's (tough game v Russia there)

              Two more on Saturday to finish off the summer feast, before the temporary autumn lull.
              In the morning, Brazil (5 picks) have a chance to gain one point in the volleyball bronze medal match v Argentina. We've no-one in the final.
              The final Lions Test is on Saturday evening. Hasn't exactly been a try-fest so far (I really don't know how to frame these rugby events!) but the fact only one player has scored so far means even one try for any of our selections will get some decent points. Anthony Watson is dropped, Josh Adams finally gets a start whilst DVDM and Rob Henshaw get another go.

                    Darts World Cup will finish in 3 weeks time, Sunday 12th. US Open Tennis final will be sometime over the same weekend.

                    Aussie Rules league phase ended yesterday. Richmond (6 picks) were a high profile failure, not finishing in the top 8 this year. Geelong (5 picks) and Port Adelaide (mdoug) play each other next Friday - winner will go through to a home semi-final though the loser will get a second chance.
                    Cricket T20 Blast quarter-finals take place this week Tuesday->Friday. Surrey (4 picks) failed to get out of the group, but everyone else is still alive. Notts (4 picks) against Hampshire (Strewelpeter) is the standout tie.

                              World Cup of Darts starts on Thursday evening, with the final scheduled for Sunday night.
                              Port Adelaide and Geelong both safely into the semi-finals of the Aussie Rules, which take place on Friday and Saturday lunchtimes. 1 point guaranteed but now is the time to turn 1pointers into 4pointers.

                                I see Gary Anderson pulled out a few hours after you used the change (probably a co-incidence ).
                                Big John Henderson replaces him, dropping Scotland from #1 seeds to #6.

                                    Wouldn't be entirely troubled by it. WCOD is a lottery of sorts and Big John is better than he's often made out to be.

                                              Cracking event, though the failure of Holland to take any of about a dozen chances to kill off Scotland in the quarter-final was so annoying for me.

                                                  If only Anderson changed a few hours earlier, that lead would be well shorter

                                                  Ryder cup change to Justin Thomas.

                                                          Scenes at the first semi-final.
                                                          Hampshire bat poorly, rally a bit late on to a still sub-par 150.
                                                          Somerset have a mare chasing, 40/5 early and 105/7 after 17 overs with just tail-enders left. At which stage I switch off as 46 off 3 overs isn't happening based on anything that's gone before.
                                                          Going to have to rewind just to see how the fuck Somerset actually won.

                                                                        Rugby League has some potential for the chasing pack - Wigan beaten in their quarter-final so won't score. Up to St Helens in their home semi-final v Leeds next Friday to put some points on the board. Points are 4-2 in that event, nothing for beaten semi-finalists.

                                                                                          Super League final on Saturday . St Helens (9 picks) against unpicked Catalan. I'm off travelling again, so Sunday before you get an update.

                                                                                          Just 1 game left for each team in the baseball regular season, and surprisingly still a bit left to play for play-off wise.
                                                                                          My hipster pick of San Diego has gone down in flames, whilst Chicago White Sox (SP) are safely into the last 8.
                                                                                          Dodgers (6 picks) could yet top their group and be into the last 8 and the cushion of best of 5 games, or could finish second & have to play a once-off wildcard game.
                                                                                          That one-game playoff is the best case scenario for the Yankees (4 picks) who are in a 4 way tussle with Boston, Toronto and Seattle for two places in the wildcard round.
                                                                                          That's my read of it anyway.

Was very surprised when i looked yesterday to see Russia are in fact massive favorites!

I was originally going Italy with partial home advantage until Berettini got injured. Then I thought UK must be the favs with two T20 singles players and a topnotch doubles pairings. Never really considered Russia and then see they are 6/4 when a market finally developed this week.
