terry1So the English Premier League season has closed with not too many shocks or surprises in the final order at both ends of the table.

citizenThere is plenty of International rugby to bet on this coming weekend and while I will be getting involved there is an event starting next week Thursday that has already caught my eye.

CouchBlogThe Brumbies hosted the Rebels in a match which would have lured less grown men as viewers than a Justin Bieber concert. In the end the Brumbies were clinical in disposing of their opponents by four tries to zero.

terry1A Premier League season as outstanding as the one which has just finished deserved to have a thrilling, high quality climax. And this time it certainly had one with an FA Cup Final packed with skill, endeavour, excitement and, perhaps most important of all, superb entertainment for the crowd packed into Wembley and the millions watching on television around the world.

citizenI have to admit that my enthusiasm for Super Rugby is at an all time low. That is probably because I went on a terrible betting run a few weeks ago to the point where I have taken a step back of late only punting the occasional game. The past 3 weeks I have focused on cycling and the Giro which turned out to be both profitable and exciting.

CouchBlogDespite a moment of idiocy from Robbie Coetzee the Lions were able to get out of third gear in the second half and operate at as close to full speed as they transformed a 19-3 advantage into a comfortable 54-10 romp in the end.

terry1Well it was certainly a high quality final day to the Premier League season on Sunday. In the battle at the top for European Championship qualification, we had superb teams in action, excellent individual displays and perhaps above all, plenty of really great goals.

citizenWith the Tour de France just over a month away I have started to take a keen interest in cycling. Of all sports it is the one I get the most satisfaction out of watching and of course I enjoy nothing more than having a few bets on the stages as well as the overall classifications such as the Race Winner, Points Jersey and King of the Mountains.

CouchBlogIt promised to be a tight tussle in Fiji yet in typical New Zealand fashion these was still some sublime skill and flair on show. The crowd in attendance didn’t have to wait long for the action to get them out of their seats. Between the 20th and 30th minute four tries were scored.

terry1An epic Premier League season, packed with uncertainty and unexpected results throughout, saw most of the unknown factors cleared up  following Sunday’s games last week end.

Post Match Scuffle, After all is said and done

Since there was only one game I considered giving the post weekend review from the couch a skip, but alas I know my millions and millions of followers will just not be satisfied by that. So, here we go on my thoughts of the weekend and the Super Rugby 2018 season as a whole…

Lions face a massive task!
Lions face a massive task!

The Lions came from behind for the second weekend in a row when they saw off the Waratahs in Johannesburg this past weekend.  They conceded two early tries before eventually taking control of the game up front and ultimately drawing clear to win by a double figure margin which was enough to see Lions handicap punters collect.

So after months of scrapping it out we have only two left standing. The flamboyant South Africans and the ultra-professional, disciplined defending champions who seem to perennially be at the sharp end of the competition.
