7 cracking Sky Sports picks

With rugby, wrestling, cricket and golf all live on the box, get ready for some awesome action

Catch all of the body-slamming, club-thwhacking, stump-splitting drama on Sky Sports

Sky Sports round-up, from Friday 15 June

Whether you like your balls red, white, egg-shaped or absent altogether, there’s plenty of spectacular live action on Sky Sports to keep you firmly rooted to your sofa this June.


Heavyweights of rugby and cricket are going head to head, while wrestling’s current crop of top tusslers are reaching for the stars (or, more accurately, a suitcase) as WWE Money In The Bank returns.


So grab your clubs, helmets, gumshields and ladders, and feast your eyes on this rollicking round-up of Sky Sports picks…

1. Rugby: South Africa v England

Saturday 16 June, 3pm, Sky Sports Action/HD (CH 517/507)

In the penultimate clash of their three-Test series, Eddie Jones takes his England side to Bloemfontein’s Free State Stadium to face his former employers. What better way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon than watching two titans of international rugby crash into each other, all in the name of sport?


2. Rugby: Australia v Ireland

Saturday 16 June, 10.45am, Sky Sports Action/HD (CH 517/507)

Ireland head down under for the second Test against an Australia side that’s looking to make amends following some bruising defeats. And with the Rugby World Cup kicking off in 2019, both teams will be looking to impress, with players staking their claim to a seat on the plane to Japan.


3. WWE Money In The Bank

WWE superstar Ronda Rousey

Sunday 17 June, midnight, Sky Sports Box Office, £14.95. Booking open now

Every sports fan’s favourite ladder-based sporting event returns, with feuds to be settled, titles to be won and a suitcase containing a coveted wrestling contract up for grabs. Chicago’s Allstate Arena plays host to one of the craziest nights in the WWE calendar, as stars such as Ember Moon, Ronda Rousey, Braun Strowman and more compete in match-ups that promise to be as entertaining as they are chaotic.

The second ODI gets under way in Cardiff, but can Eoin Morgan’s men avenge last winter’s series of thrashings? Or will Australia deliver another resounding defeat? Regardless of the outcome, there will be plenty of time for either side to make amends, with the third, fourth and fifth ODIs taking place live on Sky Sports on 19, 21 and 24 June, respectively.


5. Golf: BMW International Open

The BMW International Open rolls back into Germany, and this year’s event is teed up to be a memorable one. Held at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Gut Lärchenhof course in Pulheim, all eyes will be on the top of the leaderboard, with the past three winners all achieving the exact same score in their respective tournaments – a whopping 17 under par!


6. ODI cricket: England Women v South Africa Women

Friday 15 June, 1.30pm, Sky Sports Cricket/HD (CH 514/504)

Prepare to be well and truly bowled over, as women’s cricket returns to the Spitfire Ground in Cantebury. Follow all the action from the third and final ODI, but who will come out on top when world champions England look to repeat their World Cup semi-final win over South Africa?


7. Boxing: Josh Kelly v Kris George

British boxer Josh Kelly

Saturday 16 June, 7pm, Sky Sports Action/HD (CH 517/507)

Ha’way, the lad is back! With the niftiest of footwork, it’s safe to say that “Pretty Boy” Josh Kelly is fast becoming one of boxing’s slickest fighters. In his first bout since an impressive decision victory over former IBF Light Middleweight Champion, Carlos Molina, the Newcastle native faces New Zealand’s Kris George for the Commonwealth and WBA International Welterweight titles in front of what’s sure to be a raucous home crowd. And after starting his career with five straight wins in 2017, Kelly is looking to position himself as one of British boxing’s biggest draws.
