Uninspired England defeat Argentina

Autumn internationals England (14) 21 Tries: Hughes, Rokoduguni Cons: Ford Pens: Ford 3 Argentina (3) 8 Tries: Sanchez Pens: Boffelli A rusty England battled to a third win over Argentina in six months as they began their autumn campaign in disjointed fashion. Nathan Hughes’ first-half try had given them a foundation that they struggled to build on, Semesa Rokoduguni’s third international try with 14 minutes left finally easing home nerves. But head coach Eddie Jones looked far from content, and if Argentina had not missed four kickable penalties and a conversion his mood may have been more fraught yet. Not since 2006 have Argentina beaten England, and with their only win all year coming at home against Georgia they arrived at Twickenham as clear underdogs. Nicolas Sanchez̵...

Italy in real trouble after Sweden loss piles pressure on Gian Piero Ventura

Gab Marcotti rips into Gian Piero Ventura for saying Italy deserved better than their first-leg playoff defeat at Sweden. Gian Piero Ventura says Italy will have plenty of opportunities to overcome Sweden’s advantage and reach the World Cup. “What rotten luck,” Andrea Pirlo sighed. A few days after playing the final game of his career, “il Maestro” was on the sofa with friends, glass of wine in hand, watching his country play Sweden in the World Cup play-off from the comfort of his New York loft. Matteo Darmian had just hit the post as Italy searched for an equaliser against Sweden. It was in vain. Aside from another chance that the Manchester United full-back set up for Andrea Belotti in the opening minutes, a free header he’d usually bury at the club l...

Michael Giacchino recently celebrated his 50th birthday with a few thousand of his closest friends: to herald the momentous occasion, the Cinematic Sinfonia Orchestra performed an evening of the composer’s most-loved scores at London’s Royal Albert Hall.  Giacchino, who got his start scoring video games, then moved to TV and now films, is three-quarters of the way to coveted EGOT status: He won an Emmy for his score for Lost, three Grammys for his work on Ratatouille and Up, and an Oscar for best original score for Up.  His score for War for the Planet of the Apes once again has him in Oscar contention.

On Saturday night, Angela Hill will step into a cage in the US state of Virginia and punch a woman in the mouth. If things go to plan, she’ll knock her out.
