Kenya Sevens reach cup final: Canada 2017/18

Kenya sevens, Canada, Kenya, Fiji

Fiji dashed our hopes of grabbing a second IRB Sevens main cup title in Canada, but still, kudos to the big boys of the Kenya Sevens team. You guys were strong strong all weekend long and certainly did us proud. If anyone was going to take us down convincingly at this leg it was going to be non-other than the Fijians seeing as how they already did during our Pool C matchup. Their style of play was much similar to ours, however, the addition of their natural style, flare and class in the sevens game is what set us miles apart.  Continue reading “Kenya Sevens reach cup final: Canada 2017/18”

Done and dusted: Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are taking it

Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are taking it

 

We think it’s safe to say that Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are taking it. And by “It” we mean the Premier League title of the 2017/18 season. City has simply been unplayable this season. In all its years, the Premier League has never seen such a dominant force as this spectacular Manchester City side entering the usually very hectic and jam-packed Christmas period. It seems likely that come May 2018, Pep will be lifting his first Premier League title. United, Chelsea and the rest can’t do anything about it.

Rashford vs Martial: Who’s better?

The in-house battle going on at the left flank position of the Manchester United side between Marcus Rashord and Anthony Martial has proved to be super exciting to watch so far, to say the least. Some may even feel it’s kind of bringing out the best in both of them because they’ve both been in blistering form so far. Romelu Lukaku’s signing in the summer meant that the young English lad and his French teammate would most likely have to compete for that left side position considering the fact that they both have clearly claimed to be more comfortable attacking from the left.

The fact that it was something that had never been done before is enough to win any argument on that matter.
