Titanic clashes set to shake up the weekend
Die-hard sport fans can be forgiven for feeling a bit overwhelmed with the lineup SuperSport has dished up this weekend.
On the other hand a bumper weekend of the best sporting action is enough to make any supporter feel like a kid in a candy store – the problem then becomes what candy you taste first.
While day three in the crucial third Test between India and England on Friday might decide which team wins the match, antipodean cricket's heavy-hitters come out to play Down Under in the K Big Bash Twenty20 in the Melbourne Derby between the Melbourne Renegades and the Melbourne Stars.
Before the football completely dominates proceedings, sevens rugby in Port Elizabeth will be the main focus for rugby enthusiasts, with the Blitzbokke and Kenya in action, this is a tournament not to be missed. The East Africans have gone from strength to strength so far and find themselves in third position behind powerhouses Fiji and New Zealand. A good showing in the Friendly City could see them improve their position in the HSBC Sevens
World Series standings.
In the beautiful game, two derby games will separate fans in both England and South Africa. In Mzansi on Saturday, the Soweto derby kicks off between the oldest clubs in the country as Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates
do battle at the FNB Stadium. The next day the Barclays Premier League offers the Manchester derby
between Manchester United and Manchester City.
