    Should be a good game, although its probably going to be a bit wet so maybe not the same quality of enterprising play we saw last weekend, still a real tough one though, not sure who will win this one.

    Not related but Sonny Bill beat Frans “White Buffalo” Botha I see to get the WBA International Heavyweight title – hadn’t been following the build up that closely but didn’t realize it was actually a title fight.
