Well another weekend of sport done and it was huge. If sport was junk food Id be well on my way to Type 2 Diabetes,

NRL- 3 games decided by Field goals in one round. Is that some sort of record?Roosters to strong over the Broncs, Warriors blitz the Titans with 90% completion rate GC had way to many errors in their game and poor kicks from Roberts didnt find space
—–
Penny Panthers scrape home at the death after the Tigers lead 8-2 early, Manly who had 20 errors and less possession cause the upset of the round over Souths in a game that saw the usually solid kicker in Reynolds have a shocker which cost them the win,
—–
Canberra hand Cowboys their 3rd loss with Croker and Rapana running circles around Nth Qld, Parra bring home the bacon over the Sharks in a back and forth game and the Storm win 4in a row over Canterbury who scored a late try but missed the conversion by 3 postcodes
—–
AFL- Swans picked up their 1st win of 2019, GWS put the hurt on Richmond with Cameron kicking 7goals, West Coast sent Collingwood fans home sad, Suns Hawthorn and Freo also picking up wins in tight clashes with my prediction of StKilda being blow out of the water
—–
Curling-Hard luck for the olympic gold medalists with USA bowing out to Japan 7-6 and Switzerland losing to Canada 5-6, Japan played the Swiss in the bronze medal game unfortunately losing 8-4 with the Swiss picking up 4 shots in the 7th end. Sweden v Canada for the gold today
—–
Darts- Players Championship 9&10 were held, no joy for the Aussies with Simon Whitlock and Kyle Anderson out early with PC9 going to James Wade over Michael Smith 8-2 and PC10 saw Jonny Clayton win 8-4 over Gabriel Clemens
—–
FA Cup- Man City beat Brighton 1-0 with Gabriel Jesus scoring in the 4th minute. Theyll be singing his praises, Man City dominated possession giving little away and Watford beat The Wolves 3-2 in extra time after leading 2-0 with Deulofue bagging a double
—–
V8s headed to Tassy with DJR 1,2 finish in race1, SVG the best Holden in 3rd and standout performance from Mark Winterbottom in his new team unlucky to not hang onto 3rd. Race2 saw SVG win by 5seconds with Coultard 2nd and Reynolds 3rd, point leader McLaughlin in 4th
—–
WSBK saw hometown hero Alvaro Bautista claim both races in Aragon Spain by 6second margin who currently leads by 39 points overall
—–
Rugby7’s from Hong Kong, what an absolute pleasure this was to watch with Fiji winning over France 21-7 which saw a few yellow cards thrown at players and a penalty try for a high tackle. This win has put Fiji in the record books winning 5 7s comps in a row
—–
Cycling- Took to the streets of Belgium with Aussie Michael Matthews crossing the line in 6th after 270km which saw Italian Alberto Bettiol win in by 14seconds in an overall time of 6h18m49s
—–
Weight lifting was held in Georgia, I caught snippets of this via youtube in bed and Im no expert on this or the competitors but its just amazing to see people lifting close to double their body weight I know I cant do it
—–
Surfing (its still going)- Steph Gilmore went out to USA Caroline Marks in the 1/4 finals, Sally Fitzgibbons beat Sage Erickson to go through to the semis and is on now. In the men Aussie Wade Carmichael went down in the 1/4 final as well as Champ Gabriel Medina, semis up next
—–

If you’re not following Mendy on Twitter @BigMendy180 here’s what you’re missing out on #MendysWeekendUpdate

Well thats another sleepless coffee beer and pain killer fuelled weekend of sport over with a sigh of disapointment for some fans. NRL AFL F1 Darts UFC Cricket Cycling WRC and I lose Drone racing virginity. its all covered
@batsandballspod
—–
The Dragons pipped the Broncos in rnd3 opener. The Broncs didnt complete sets well in a back and forth game sealed by a field goal to Norman. Gareth Widdop suffered a big shoulder injury to add to their list of woes
—–
Raiders beat the Knights 17-10 and Parra suffered their fisrt loss to the Roosters 32-18 which was neck and neck until the 62nd minute. the scoreline doesnt reflect how good of effort Parra put in. Again Fergo killing it for the Eels
—–
Manly picked up their first win roasting the Warriors 46-12 with DCE and Turbo Tommy running riot. Sharkies did the same to the Cowboys as did the Storm over the Penny Panthers who took their game to Bathurst in a dismal display. The only thing worse than Penrith was the weather
—–
Tigers suffered their first loss to Canterbury. The Bulldogs controlled every minute of that game with only 4 errors and 89% completion rate.
Bunnies beat Titans 28-20 in a hard game that saw GC hang around on the scoreboard like that annoying cousin at a wedding
—–
AFL- Big margins were all the rage in rnd2 with West Coast bouncing back over GWS, Collingwood cleaning up against Richmond and Geelong pumping the Dees by 80. AFLW Adelaide Crows destroyed Carlton 63-18 in the GF in a game that saw an unexpected huge crowd turn out
—–
Daniel Ricciardo again suffered in Bahrain GP with his car Renault failing again with then fears of being electrocuted when getting out. I know Renault have a black and yellow theme going but thats also the colour of rotting lemons. Hamilton claimed victory
—–
Darts- Euro tour 2 was taken out by Daryl Gurney 8-6 over Ricky Evans. Superchin rocketed to a 5-1 lead early only to see Evans claw some legs back in a tight finishing game
—–
UFC- saw a couple of big KOs but stand out for me was Michelle Watersons strawweight fight. Her leg speed and kicking technique was outrageously good which she won on decision in a dominant performance
—–
Aussies wound up the series 5-0 against the Pakis in Dubai with Glen Maxwell putting on a masterclass belting 70 of 33 balls. Finch, Khawaja and S Marsh also had big scores though the Pakis bowling attack is a little lacking
—–
Cycling from Belgium was taken out by Norwegian Alexander Kristoff with the 4 Aussies in the race failing to finish the 251km race
—–
WRC- Hit the tarmac hills in France which was overall taken out by German Thierry Neuville in his Hyundai i20 by 40seconds. He also leads the championship by 2 points over Citroens Sebastien Ogier.
—–
Drone Racing hit the snow fields in Laax, Switzerland. Its a bit like redbull air race twisting through tight course gates at 130kmph controlled via remote person wearing a VR headset with Veloce Racing from Korea taking maximum points. Its different Ill put it that way
