Event of the day

The event of the day is the British and Irish Lions second test match against New Zealand from the Westpac Stadium in Wellington. This is a must-win game for Warren Gatland's Lions who lost the first test match against the All Blacks 30-15 last week in Auckland. The Lions also failed to win their final midweek tour match, after squandering a 16 point lead to draw 31-31 against theHurricanes. The Lions are searching for their first series win on New Zealand soil since 1971. Gatland has brought Maro Itoje, Johnny Sexton and captain Sam Warburton in to the side - will the changes make a difference? With history against them, can the Lions level the series or will New Zealand trump them once again. Either way this will be an exciting and fantastic watch. 

Honourable mentions around the globe go to stage one of the 104th edition of the Tour De France. The world's most famous cycling race gets underway again, with 21 stages and 3,540km over the next 3 weeks from the world's best cyclists. It is the Royal London One-Day Cup final between Nottinghamshire and Surrey at Lord's for the first trophy of the English domestic cricket season. There are four matches from the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup with the contest between current world champions Australia and New Zealand at the Bristol County Ground the pick of the games.
