We of course start with the opening to the Champions Cup and what has been another thrilling start to the competition. It began on Friday with some Finn Russell magic as Racing 92 thrashed Northampton Saints.

Talking of magic moments and who else but Harry Potter produced his latest trick.

On a serious note, thankfully Leicester wing Potter was fine to continue and played his part in a stunning victory over Bordeaux-Begles as they maintained their winning in 2021/22.

Another heroic effort came from Ulster, who inflicted a rare home defeat on Clermont Auvergne. This showed how fired up they were for the contest.

Despite those impressive wins, arguably the story of the weekend came at Cardiff as the Welsh region gave it their all, despite being severely depleted due to Covid isolation rules. Even this young fan was offering his services.

Sandra Bullock Had An A+ Response To Possibly Joining Channing Tatum In Magic Mike 3

  Sandra Bullock Had An A+ Response To Possibly Joining Channing Tatum In Magic Mike 3 Sandra Bullock had the perfect response to the possibility of starring alongside Channing Tatum in Magic Mike 3.At the premiere for her new film The Unforgivable, Sandra Bullock simultaneously dazzled in a bejeweled Stella McCartney jumpsuit and fired off some zingy one-liners when Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight brought up Magic Mike’s Last Dance. Sandra Bullock has some experience onstage (Miss Congeniality counts, right?), so she’s obviously a natural choice to star alongside Channing Tatum in the next Magic Mike movie.

At the other end of the age spectrum – in professional rugby terms at least – Dan Fish has been doing his absolute best to retire but keeps coming back! Full credit to Dan for answering their SOS.

The whole Cardiff 23 equipped themselves superbly and there was even a standing ovation for a red card when Jacob Beetham was sent off. It was the correct decision but it wasn’t malicious and didn’t take away from what was a fine display from the youngster.

Ultimately, the Toulouse quality told in their 39-7 triumph with the outstanding Antoine Dupont stealing this show. There was this stunning individual try…

…And this simply wonderful assist.

The France scrum-half showed why he became World Rugby Player of the Year, an award the 25-year-old was proud of.

Dupont beat Maro Itoje and Australia duo, Samu Kerevi and Michael Hooper, to the trophy. The initial shortlist caused anger amongst Springbok fans, but they were slightly happier with the team of the year, which had five players nominated.

Elsewhere, there was some surprising transfer news as Vincent Koch moved from Saracens to Wasps. This was how the Midlanders announced it.

Meanwhile, our thoughts go out to Ospreys’ Ifan Phillips, who sustained “life-changing injuries” in a road traffic collision, but it was good to see this picture of him smiling following the incident.

Finally, you will do well to see a bigger hand-off than this from Exeter’s Chloe Rollie.
