This weekend brings a host of sporting action to enjoy, including a Premier League clash that’s sure to be a cracker, a pre-season rugby friendly that will be anything but friendly, and a cricket match-up that will undoubtedly be packed full of entertainment.
Chelsea vs Manchester City (English Premier League)
The two most promising title hopefuls go head-to-head at the Bridge on Saturday evening, with the managerial battle between Pellegrini vs Mourinho coming to a boiling point.
Unfortunately for Chelsea, the participation of some of their star players is in doubt, as Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas look likely to miss out on the match altogether. In Man City’s favour, they see the return of Frank Lampard who will be sure to get a mixed reception from his old fans.
Saracens vs Bulls (pre-season friendly rugby)
Rugby fans becoming a little impatient waiting for Super Rugby to kick-off will be glad to know that the Bulls pre-season friendly against Saracens will be broadcast on SuperSport.
In something quite different to the Pretoria side’s usual preparion plans, the two-time Super Rugby champions are in London to face the mighty Premiership side that is Saracens. No South African team has managed to beat them, but the Bulls are looking to get their season off to a flying start following some disappointing performances last year.
South Africa A vs England Lions (international cricket)
Proteas Cricket World Cup squad members Quinton de Kock, Wayne Parnell and Aaron Phangiso and have been included in the South Africa A one-day squad for the third match against the England Lions in Potchefstroom on Saturday.
The England Lions lead the five-match series 2-0 after their 70-run win in Kimberley on Wednesday.
