WEEK­END SPORT

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv -

I’D like to think the Syd­ney Swans can claw their way to an­other win against the Cats in Gee­long to­day, but the go­ing down at Skilled Sta­dium isn’t go­ing to be just an­other stroll in the park against the red- hot de­fend­ing AFL pre­miers. The game is live on Ten from 2pm. To­mor­row’s ac­tion on Fox Sports 1 from 1pm fea­tures Melbourne up against a resur­gent Carl­ton. On Seven, Syd­neysiders get a look at what they are miss­ing with the first of three street races at Hamil­ton, New Zealand, for the V8 Su­per­cars, with the week­end ac­tion un­der way from noon. My pick of the Su­per 14 rugby union tonight is the Waratahs at home to the Li­ons of South Africa, live on FS3 at the ear­lier time of 5.30pm. The way young Freddy Fit­tler has had the Syd­ney Roost­ers crow­ing of late in the NRL makes me think the Knights of New­cas­tle will find their next as­sign­ment hard go­ing. Kick- off is slated for 1.30pm to­mor­row on FS2. Two crack­ing lo­cal der­bies high­light to­mor­row night’s English Pre­mier League fare with As­ton Villa at home to Birm­ing­ham on FS3 at the ear­lier time of 9pm, fol­lowed by New­cas­tle United at home to Sun­der­land from 10.30pm on FS1. For those read­ers who have dis­cov­ered Se­tanta Sports, to­mor­row night’s fea­tured live game from the Scot­tish Pre­mier League sees Celtic at home to Aberdeen, with kick- off slated for mid­night.
