THREE weeks of stay­ing up late watch­ing the Tour de France cy­cle clas­sic and lis­ten­ing to Phil Liggett and Paul Sher­wen’s mar­vel­lous call on SBS has been worth ev­ery minute. Tonight’s stage, a 55.5km time trial from Co­gnac to An­gouleme, will be no dif­fer­ent as it could de­cide who gets to wear the yel­low race leader’s jer­sey on to the Champs- El­y­sees to­mor­row. Cov­er­age tonight from 10pm, while to­mor­row’s fi­nal sprint into Paris starts from 10.30pm. It’s make or break time for the Syd­ney Swans. If they want to reach the AFL fi­nals, a win against Rich­mond is a must, live on Fox Sports 1 and Ten from 7pm. To­mor­row’s pick of the ac­tion is the Bomber­sCrows from Tel­stra on Seven, live into Syd­ney and Bris­bane from 2pm, 30 min­utes ear­lier in Ade­laide and on a one- hour de­lay into Melbourne. But Hawthorn and Kan­ga­roos fans may dis­agree with me. Their match can be seen on FS1 from 1pm to­mor­row. That will be fol­lowed by Port Ade­laide and the Melbourne Demons from 4.30pm into South Aus­tralia only. In the NRL, it is a must­win sit­u­a­tion for Cronulla against the Bron­cos in Bris­bane if they are to fig­ure in the play- offs, live on FS3 from 1.30pm to­mor­row. Base­ball fans are in for a treat to­mor­row, with the Los An­ge­les An­gels up against the Detroit Tigers live on FS2 from 5.30am.
