Default Sports Appreciation Thread (excluding Football)

I feel like Football gets celebrated a lot around most of the world, so I thought that it'd be good to appreciate some of the other Sports that get less of a push.

Especially in the UK where we're very Football mad in the Media and society in general.

I'll keep editing the OP over the days to include more Sports Matches.

And just to add they'll mainly be highlights being linked on here due to legal reasons.

1. Novak Djokovic vs Casper Ruud French Open 2023 - Tennis


2. Hull KR vs Batley Bulldogs Betfred Challenge Cup 2023 - Rugby League


3. Hull FC vs Warrington Wolves Betfred Super League 2023 - Rugby League


4. St Helens vs Wigan Warriors Betfred Super League 2023 - Rugby League


5. Sale vs Leicester Tigers Gallagher English Premiership 2023 - Rugby Union


6. London Irish vs Exeter Chiefs Gallagher English Premiership 2023 - Rugby Union


7. Bath vs Saracens Gallagher English Premiership 2023 - Rugby Union

9. Birmingham Moseley vs Taunton Titans English National League 1 2023 - Rugby Union


10. Plymouth Albion vs Cambridge English National League 1 2023 - Rugby Union


11. Denver Nuggets vs Miami Heat NBA Finals 2023 - Basketball


12. Birmingham Phoenix vs Southern Brave The Hundred 2022 - Cricket


13. Brazil vs Japan FIFA Futsal World Cup 2012 - Futsal


Technically it's not traditional Football, so it counts on this list imo.

14. Coventry Blaze vs Nottingham Panthers EIHL 2023 - Ice Hockey


15. Sheffield Steelers vs Manchester Storm EIHL 2023 - Ice Hockey


16. England vs Australia Quad Series 2022 - Netball


17. Spain vs England EDFC 2022 - Futsal


18. Josh Taylor vs Teofimo Lopez Jr. Welterweight Title 2023 - Boxing


19. Andy Murray vs Jurji Rodionov Surbiton 2023 - Tennis


20. Iga Swiatek vs Karolina Muchova French Open 2023 - Tennis

Any thoughts on the Nate Diaz fight tonight ??

I know hes not a boxer but his heart is in boxing first and foremost.


Hes probably my favourite UFC guy but ..

Sadly I see him getting sparked out eating doors

The bookies dont think Nate has a chance


Nate fought at 155 most of his career but Jake Paul walks around at 230 lbs normally


Thats 85 lbs heavier or 6 STONE !!

Plus Nate is a battered up 38 year old in his FIRST ever boxing bout

Yeah i have to agree with you. And yeah i've been following the odds. However, the bookies got it wrong in Paul's last fight against fellow knob Tommy Fury. They had Jake strong favourite in that. I just hope Nate can connect with a decent combo. Unfortunately i see Nate getting KO'd though.

Yeah very strange. But honestly, there's only one reason he took this fight, just like all the other ex MMA and sports people, a nice pay day. I don't think Nate cares if he wins of loses. It wont damage his reputation imo.

I dunno, i think he's past the point of caring. No one will ever take Jake Paul seriously as a boxer. The boxing world will happily make money off the back of his army of child followers. Nate just seems stonned (which he is) and care free all the time.

H wont be treating this as he would an MMA fight.

I've put 10 on Nate Diaz winning by KO or TKO @7/1. Not a very wise bet, more hope than anything, but it's not like im paying for the fight so meh.

Stayed up all night for this fight, watching the women's South Africa vs Holland match while waiting. They said the ring walk would be 4am, but we've still got another fight to go yet ffs. Looking like 5am at least.

Yeah Im still here ..

Jumping around a few Instagram accounts watching the fights LIVE thus far

The fights have all been good to be fair

That last fight was interesting.. a lad from the Diaz camp fighting their style beating a hard punching guy who concentrated on a big right hand


Looks promising for Nate

Yeah i've been watching the fights on and off. I have to keep switching servers though as all of them are getting nuked pretty quick. The longest one stayed up was for about 30 mins lol. I just know im gonna have to bounce around them for the Diaz/Paul fight.

Jake Paul dominated Diaz in the first, it's all over. Gonna be an easy win for Paul.
