Rugby league in the NRL and Super League is still going ahead, for now...

I'm looking forward to Castleford taking on St. Helens this afternoon from Wheldon Road.

I watched the UFC card from Brasilia last night as well. Rather strange watching combat sports being played out in an empty arena.
That's all, folks!

Dana White says that the UFC will continue with their upcoming events. I have mixed feelings about this as UFC fighters aren't unionised like in many major sports and might feel under more obligation and pressure, and in many cases in need of a pay-day. At the same time, if everyone concerned is healthy and ready to go it could put back careers to call off fights. Tough one...

That was crashy. Jimmy Broadbent amateur youtuber came 5th in a race with just pros (even Juan Pablo Montoya was racing).
2nd race next.

The NRL (National Rugby League) reaching out to ESPN to potentially show more live games on their American channels, given the shut-down affecting virtually all of professional sport in America. This could offer rugby league to sports-starved new spectators and be a boon to the sport in difficult and unprecedented times.
