England footballers and their twitter feeds were making waves over the last few days, including Harry Maguire and his call for fans to eat their hearts out, and to reflect on how well Harry played at the Euros.

 

Given what’s going on in South Africa at the moment – a raging pandemic, violence on the streets, looting, a huge shortage of employment – it’s easy to see why the Lions tour has been largely ignored up to now. We talk to Craig Ray in Cape Town about the state the country is in and if the Boks can cope with all the obstacles they’ve had to hurdle thus far.

We ask Shane Horgan what the point is of going ahead with these matches given the background and the job Conor Murray has been handed as captain for the strangest Lions tour of all time.

And with the Open about to start tomorrow, we can always rely on Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau to add to the merriment of the nation.
