The citys 2.7 million residents have thus had genuine world champions in their midst. However, many of them appear not to have noticed.Such ambivalence has also stretched to the media, with only three local journalists attending the All Blacks first press conference in the city, leaving some Kiwi scribes pointedly concerned about the whole concept of this trip. Assurances have followed, from New Zealand players and staff, that anonymity made rather a refreshing change yet by the end of the week reports came in of taxi drivers asking questions.

Jonathan Trotts England Lions selection revives the glow of past times | Barney Ronay

www.guardian.co.uk - The batsmans return gives him a deserved chance to heal the wounds of his sudden demise and is a comforting throwbackAt first glance there was something very welcome, but also slightly startling about the news this week of Jonathan Trotts selection in the England Lions squad, accompanied by some cautious talk of a possible reinstatement in time to the full Test team. For the bruised and wary England cricket follower this was all a little unexpected, a rustling back into life from some improbable corner. From a certain angle it feels a bit like the Beatles split up six months ago but no one told Ringo, and here he is now bounding back in through the patio doors, drumsticks under his arm saying yeah that yogic retreat really did the trick lets get back in the studio and  Hey. Wheres John? And Paul. And, er, Kevin.In reality enough time has passed now for Trotts return to seem, if not likely, then a reasonable prospect on its own merits. November will bring the one-year anniversary of the traumas of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane and the moment England became effectively post-Trott. If it feels longer this is perhaps a consequence of what came after, and also of the way things ended. Continue reading... More... (Cricket)

From a betting perspective, its hardly ideal for one of the good early races of the core jumps season but it may be that there are more non-runners to come because the going at Wetherby is good, good to soft in places after little recent rain and well find it today whether it might actually be riding even a little faster than that.
