Last weeks roundups


  • In an impressive display of resilience, the managerless Chelsea managed to hold Liverpool to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge.
  • In a thrilling encounter filled with drama, Robert Firmino scored a crucial late equalizer for Liverpool, as Arsenal's lead at the top of the table was cut to just six points. The match, played at Anfield, was packed with incident from start to finish, with both sides putting on an impressive display of attacking football.

Mens Golf Major: Masters Tournament

  • In a stunning display of skill and composure, John Rahm emerged as the victor at Augusta, overcoming formidable opponents in Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson.
  • In a magnificent display of skill and nerve, 28-year-old John Rahm shot an impressive three-under 69 to finish the tournament at 12 under and claim victory by a commanding four-shot margin.
  • Brooks Koepka and veteran Phil Mickelson finished joint second in the tournament, with both players delivering impressive performances. Koepka had been in contention for the title going into the final round, but a difficult day on the course saw him finish with a score of eight under. Meanwhile, Mickelson produced a stunning display of golf, carding an impressive seven-under 65 to end the tournament on the same score as Koepka.
  • Former champions Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed were a shot further back.
  • Brooks Koepka entered the tournament with a chance to secure his fifth major title, and his first since 2019. However, his preparations for the event were somewhat unconventional, as he had opted to switch to the controversial Saudi-backed LIV Golf tour, resulting in him having played relatively few 72-hole events in recent months. Despite this, Koepka remained one of the most formidable competitors in the field, and his strong play in the earlier rounds made it clear that he was still capable of producing top-class golf when it mattered most.

Grand National 13/04/23 - 15/04/23

  • Venue: Aintree Racecourse Date: Saturday 15 April Time: 17:15 BST
  • Despite having already claimed victories in some of the most prestigious races in horse racing, including the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, and Cheltenham Gold Cup, Irish trainer Jessica Harrington has yet to add the Grand National to her impressive CV.

  • Jockey Rechael Blackmore faces a tough decision ahead of the upcoming race, as she must choose between two talented horses: Ain't That A Shame and Gin on Lime. Given Blackmore's impressive track record and reputation as one of the sport's top jockeys, her choice is sure to be closely watched by racing fans and could significantly influence the betting markets.
  • Can last year's 50-1 winner Noble Yeats repeat victory in the 175th Grand National or will runner-up Any Second Now go one better?
