Eoin Morgan playing for England

All the action on Sky Sports

There’s a whirlwind of live sport this summer, including more smashing cricket – plan your week here

Skies are blue, barbecue coals are smouldering and pavements are flip-flop-meltingly hot. The great British summer has arrived, and with it, a quite exceptional abundance of action-packed sport…

Sky Sports round-up, from Saturday 23 June

But what exactly, we hear you cry, is on offer? Rugby league? Indeed. Rugby union? Of course. Golf? Oui. A Major League Soccer showdown and a side order of smashing one-day international cricket? Certainly.

 

And if that smörgåsbord of sport has you salivating for more, then compose yourself, because you can find out even more about it all below…

Rugby Union International: South Africa v England

South Africa v England

Saturday 23 June, 3pm, Sky Sports Action/HD (CH 517/507)

England’s Test series against the Springboks concludes in Cape Town’s historic Newlands Stadium. In what’s sure to be another no-holds-barred encounter between two relatively inexperienced international teams, highly respected coaches Eddie Jones and Rassie Erasmus will likely be biting their nails (and potentially their headsets) when their teams lock horns.

 

Major League Soccer: Atlanta United v Portland Timbers

Portland Timbers v Atlanta United

Sunday 24 June, 9.30pm, Sky Sports Football/HD (CH 513/503)

East meets West in an MLS showdown featuring the 2015 MLS champions and a team that’s topping the table in just its second year of existence. Atlanta’s gleaming Mercedes-Benz Stadium plays host to a Portland Timbers side looking to improve on their lacklustre start to the season, while United have defied their inexperience to lead both the Eastern Conference and the overall standings.

 

T20 International: England v Australia

Wednesday 27 June, 6pm, Sky Sports Cricket/HD (CH 514/504)

Chalk and cheese; Potter and Voldemort; England and Australia – three of the greatest rivalries in the known universe. But this coming week, only one will feature live on Sky Sports as the Aussies head to Edgbaston to face Eoin Morgan’s England in this standalone Twenty20 match.

 

Golf: Open de France

Thursday 28 June, 9.30am, Sky Sports Golf/HD (CH 515/505)

The European Tour heads to the Albatros course at Le Golf National near Paris for the 102nd edition of the Open de France. This year’s competition is shaping up to be a cracker, with England’s Tommy Fleetwood looking to overcome a tough field, including world number two Justin Thomas, and retain his title. Bon courage, Monsieur Fleetwood… bon courage.

 

Super League: Wigan Warriors v Leeds Rhinos

Thursday 28 June, 7.30pm, Sky Sports Arena/HD (CH 518/508)

The two northern heavyweights of British rugby league go head to head in what we are calling “t’clásico” of the Super League. Can Leeds improve on their disappointing start to the season and hold on to their place in the Super 8s? Can Wigan continue their quest to top the overall table? Will there be a floodlit shot of an engrossed, pie-eating fan? Tune in to find out.
