AUSSIE POCKET ROCKET RULES TOUR DE FRANCE

AUSSIE Caleb Ewan continues to impress winning the biggest race of his life as he saluted in the iconic Champs-Elyess as his stunning Tour De France debut continues.

“The Aussie Pocket Rocket” as the fans are calling him now was in a state of shock edging out Dylan Groenewegen and Italian Niccolo Bonnifazio on the last day of Le Tour De France.

The actual winner of the Tour De France was Egan Bernal of Colombia becoming the youngest yellow jersey winner in over a century, but he’s not the Aussie Pocket Rocket.

One to watch in the future.

 

IS DON IS NOT SO GOOD

We have an AFL Club in crisis folks!

FOX Sports is reporting that the Adelaide Crows coach Don Pyke had called a club-wide meeting at his home after the Crows went down to Carlton by 27 points at the MCG on Saturday.

Adelaide has now lost four of their past five games with many suggesting that Pyke’s future is in the balance.

The Crows cling on to the eighth spot on the AFL ladder but with clubs like the Western Bulldogs making a charge, the Crows going down to the Saints this weekend could spell doom for Adelaide and Don Pyke’s coaching career.

It would be the second year in a row of missing out on finals since going down to the Tigers in the 2017 Grand Final and the Crows aren’t the kind of club that deals in mediocrity.

RICKY SAYS GAME IN DANGEROUS PERIOD

Hard to believe, but Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart isn’t happy about something.

With his Raiders feeling the brunt of the NRL’s crackdown on dangerous tackles, it’s the inconsistency in the grading that has many, including Ricky Stewart not happy about the match review committees judgement.

The inconsistency includes Jake Trbojevic with a grade-one charge on his tackle on Jahrome Hughes and will be clear to play if he accepts an early guilty plea and then Warriors Hooker Issac Luke faces two games out for doing something almost identical.

In his post-game press conference after the Raiders win over Penrith, Stuart unleashed

“Which one did they get wrong, do you reckon? Did they get Nick Cotric’s wrong, or did they get Jake’s wrong?,” 

“I commend the match review committee, because I reckon they got young Trbojevic’s right, it was an accident. Exactly the same way Nick Cotric’s was an accident.

“This game is moving into a very dangerous period in regards to consistent interpretation that are getting continually changed.

“We have a very high speed game, with such huge collision. And there are going to be accidents. James Maloney had a crusher on John Bateman, but for the game, we don’t need the penalty there, because it was a complete and pure accident.
