Johnny Sexton seals late win for Ireland in Paris

perth_map

A wayward Sexton penalty let them off the hook inside the closing quarter, when they produced a moment of real quality to turn the game on its head. "Being honest, we're focused on rugby". Wales now need to give them that same licence.

Of course, to access this you'll need to sign up for Foxtel, which is a pricey affair. On Apple and Android mobile devices, you can turn to apps from the National Football League and Yahoo Sports (Verizon now owns the latter). Read More »

The 28-year-old, who spent 12 years with Arsenal , said: "When I came to Everton I said I wanted to be part of something which I felt can move to the next level and pushing more so next season but have a good end to this season".

But it was Ramsey who made sure of the points, with another new recruit, Henrikh Mkhitaryan , laying on the chances with an assured performance on the right. Read More »

Redskins considering franchise tagging Kirk Cousins before trading him

Cousins could also delay signing the tag for months, meaning the quarterback could tie up the Redskins' cap space in free agency. "I expect to be a free agent come March 14". Once that date passes, as it did for Cousins and the Redskins the last two years, players are stuck on a one-year deal. All of it. They botched the Cousins situation by refusing to pay him market value with the guaranteed money he deserved. Read More »

Fives stats to tell your mates from Saturday's Premier League games

I think it's a joke, an absolute joke. It's the second best record in the Premier League era after Arsenal in 2000/01, when they found the net in every one of their first 26 games. I'm not sure why he is peddling this theme. He's an absolutely incredible manager, the work that he has done with this team is unbelievable, and the team performance is absolutely outstanding, it really is. Read More »

But he was sacked halfway through his four-year contract, losing 17 of his next 22 games and presiding over his very own videotape scandal. However, some said that too much was being read into the embrace. Not many people will argue with you if you tell them that Ric Flair is the greatest wrestler ever.
