CAN the Wal­la­bies build on the rugby plat­form they es­tab­lished against the All Blacks in Melbourne last week when they play a Spring­boks out­fit in Syd­ney tonight? It’s an out­fit that, on pa­per at least, ap­pears to be a some­what un­der­manned team South Africa coach Jake White has as­sem­bled. All will be re­vealed from 7pm on Fox Sports 2 and from 7.30pm on the Seven net­work in Syd­ney and Bris­bane and on three- hour de­lay in all other mar­kets. The big ques­tion will be asked of the Swans in the AFL to­mor­row when the Freo Dock­ers hit the har­bour city. It’s live on Seven in Syd­ney from 1pm and from 11am in the west. Melbourne and Ade­laide read­ers will be able to catch the Navy Blues and the Demons from 3pm. But re­ally, folks, all that pales into in­signif­i­cance this week­end with the Tour de France start­ing tonight. There’s live cov­er­age on SBS of the pro­logue from the heart of Lon­don from 11.50pm in all mar­kets ex­cept West­ern Aus­tralia, where it starts at 11pm. To­mor­row’s cov­er­age of stage one, which kicks in at the ear­lier time of 10.30pm for Phil Liggett and Paul Sher­wen’s call of the great race, will show rid­ers head­ing off from Lon­don to Can­ter­bury. In soc­cer, the Soc­ceroos’ Asian Cup gets un­der way to­mor­row night against min­nows Oman; catch the ac­tion live on FS2 from 8pm.
