Sport can be a rollercoaster of highs and lows from week to week. Here’s a quick look back at who had a good/bad week in sport this week.
After stuttering to two draws the week before last, Dundalk needed to win at home to Cork City on Friday to win the league. They did just that finishing 2-0 winners over Cork City claiming their first title in 19 years.
The Lions came from 0-21 down to beat the Atlanta Falcons 22-21 at Wembley on Sunday afternoon. The London crowd really got their money’s worth from this game with the Lions securing victory thanks to a last minute 48-yard field goal by Matt Prater. Detroit are now 6-2 for the season and with a bye round next weekend they’ll be looking to pick where they left off in two weeks time.
The Welsh winger scored all 4 of Northampton’s tries in a 34-6 win over the Ospreys. North looked unstoppable at times as he secured a win and a bonus point for the Saints to put them back on track in group 5 of the European Champions Cup after a first round loss to Racing Metro.
Ulster’s ten-point loss at home to Toulon on Saturday afternoon leaves them bottom of their group in the European Champions Cup after the first two rounds with only one point. If they are to qualify they would probably need to pick up 4 wins from their remaining 4 games, one of them being an away trip to Toulon.
Jurgen Klopp’s men’s fourth defeat in as many games on Saturday as they lost 1-0 at home to Hanover 96. Dormund now lie in 15th position in the Bundesliga after nine games. Things don’t get much easier for them either as they are set to play top of the table Bayern Munich in Munich next weekend.
