IT seems strange to be writ­ing about the Bledis­loe Cup be­tween the Wal­la­bies and All Blacks at the MCG, but that’s ex­actly where the two south­ern hemi­sphere rugby union pro­tag­o­nists find them­selves tonight, bat­tling it out for one of the code’s great pieces of sil­ver­ware. It’s live on Fox Sports 2 from 7pm and 30 min­utes later on the Seven net­work in Syd­ney and Bris­bane, but on de­lay else­where, so read­ers in the so- called non- union states should check their guides. There’s no short­age of AFL ac­tion on FS1 to­day, start­ing with Essendon up against Melbourne, with coach Neale Dani­her look­ing to rid him­self of the demons that have plagued his side all sea­son, live from 2pm. The pick of the ac­tion to­mor­row is the match be­tween the Kan­ga­roos and West­ern Bull­dogs, live from 8pm in all mar­kets ex­cept Melbourne ( here again check your lo­cal guide for the time). Mean­while in soc­cer, the long road to Jakarta and Asian Cup glory starts tonight for the Soc­ceroos with a friendly against Sin­ga­pore, live on FS3 with kick- off slated for 9.30pm. The race for Mo­toGP supremacy also con­tin­ues tonight with ac­tion com­ing to you live from Assen, the Nether­lands, on FS1 from 10pm and on a 21/ 2- hour de­lay on Ten. For ten­nis trag­ics, Wim­ble­don con­tin­ues from the All Eng­land Ten­nis and Cro­quet Club in Lon­don, at 10.30pm on FS2, or 30 min­utes later on the Nine net­work.
