SportMoose Sport News Round-Up: Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy Trail

 

Congratulations! You have finally made it to the last SportMoose Sport News Round-Up of the week and to celebrate we are going to end this article with two fantastic conditional bets from TonyBet. Let's plough on and get this round-up out of the way!

 

In case you missed them earlier.....

 

Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect, after a long an illustrious career that began in 1996. The 39-year old score 13,228 runs in 164 Tests and is second to only Sachin Tendulkar in the all-time run scoring charts for India. Read more about his retirement here.

 

All 20 teams are in action in the Barclays Premier League between now and Monday night and we could see the return of Carlos Tevez in a Manchester City shirt for the first time since that ill-fated night in September when he refused to come on as a substitute against Bayern Munich and the now infamous Tevez saga began. The SportMoose took a look at some of the bigger games taking place.

 

Tiger Woods and and Rory McIlroy Trail at WGC Cadillac Championship

 

It was not the best of days at the WGC Cadillac Championship for the likes of Phil Mickelsen, Tiger Woods or the new world number one Rory McIlroy as all three trail the current leaders by some distance. Woods shot an even-par 72 to finish six shots off the leaders, the same as Mickelsen but McIlroy faired even worse, finishing with a one-over 73; the first time he has been over par in four stroke-play events this year.

 

The windy conditions were always going to be a factor but both Jason Dufner and Adam Scott seemed to cope very well indeed and both finished with an impressive six-under 66 by the final holes.

 

ESPN have more in-depth reporting on how the trio got on.

 

England Unchanged For Six Nations Clash With France

 

Stuart Lancaster has named an unchanged side for the RBS Six Nations match with France on Sunday meaning that Owen Farrell has retained his place at fly-half. Charlie Hodgson returns to the bench after recovering from a finger injury whilst Tom Palmer keeps him company after Courtney Lawes was ruled out for the rest of the campaign.

 

Lancaster explained why he has not changed his starting XV,”It was a forced change going into the Wales game but it was a chance to see Owen, Brad and Manu together and I felt they delivered. They played well and there was no reason to change it really.”

 

England go into the match as slight underdog with odds of 3.80 to win compared to the 3.40 of France. You can bet on the England match here.

 

BBC Sport has even more on the England camp.

 

Former Saints Defensive Lineman Admits Favre Hit Was a Mistake

 

The former defensive lineman of the New Orleans Saints, Anthony Hargrove, released a statement yesterday about his role in the highly scrutinised 2009 NFC Championship game between the Saints an the Minnesota Vikings. The NFL claim the Saints had put a bounty on Brett Favre's head that would be paid if the quarterback was injured by a Saints player but although Hargrove admits the two late hits were both mistakes there was no bounty involved in them.

 

Part of the statement reads, “Players all over the league do the same thing every Sunday, make late hits and say stupid things. But I can say with absolute certainty that neither the late hit nor the comment have anything whatsoever to do with the issue being so hotly discussed in the media.”
