All your weekend's sport on the box, in one handy place.



Super Rugby Final, Hurricanes v Highlanders, Sky Sports 1, 8am

Come the end of this encounter in Wellington, one of the two teams will be crowned Super Rugby Champions for the first time in their history.

during the round eight Super Rugby match between the Hurricanes and the Stormers at Westpac Stadium Stadium on April 3, 2015 in Wellington, New Zealand.

With the likes of Ma'a Nonu, Conrad Smith and Julian Savea in the Hurricanes ranks and Ben and Aaron Smith and Malakai Fekitoa lining out for the Highlanders, there'll be plenty of All-Blacks to keep an eye on before the Rugby World Cup a little later in the year.


If you're not inclined to get up that early to watch it, meanwhile, you can catch it again on the same channel at 3pm.

Wimbledon, Day 6, BBC 2, 11.05am and BBC 1, 12.10pm

BBC have all bases covered throughout the day at SW19. Fingers crossed the rain stays away.

Live British Grand Prix qualifying, Sky Sports 1, 12pm


There are certain Grand Prix that fairweather F1 fans will tune into and for car nuts in these parts, the closest Grand Prix to Ireland is definitely one of those.

Find out who's going to be at the top of the grid at Silverstone from 12pm.

Tour de France Live, TG4, 12.55pm

Fair play to TG4, they really push the boat out when it comes to their sports coverage and they've secured another coup with live coverage of the Tour de France once again this year, starting with a time trial in Utrecht on Day One.


during the 2015 Tour de France Team Presentation, on July 2, 2015 in Jaarbeurs, Utrecht. The 102nd Tour de France starts on Saturday with a 13.8km individual time trial around Utrecht.

Live European Tour Golf, Sky Sports 4, 1pm

At this stage, it's less about seeing who might win a tournament rather than who's looking in fine fettle ahead of the British Open, which is a little under a fortnight away.

Sky Sports have all the action from the 2015 Alstom Open De France at Le Golf National in Paris, with coverage getting underway at 1pm.

The Saturday Game, Cavan v Roscommon, RTE 2, 4.40pm


One of the more appetising fixtures in the qualifiers takes place at Breffni Park, where two teams who have become very familiar with each other of late go head to head.

All-Ireland Hurling Qualifiers, Wexford v Cork, Sky Sports 1, 6.30pm

After two disheartening defeats to Waterford in league and championship, Jimmy Barry Murphy's side could do with silencing a few doubters this weekend.

Despite the Model County's heavy defeat to Kilkenny, however, they'll have nothing easy against Wexford in their own back yard. Throw in is at 7pm.

Live PGA Tour Golf, Sky Sports 4, 7pm

Day three of the 2015 Greenbrier Classic from White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Again, worth keeping an eye on who's looking in tip-top shape ahead of more important events in St. Andrew's later this month.

Copa America Final, Chile v Argentina, Setanta Sports 1, 8.30pm

Chile could claim their first ever Copa America title on home turf on Saturday evening, but they'll have it all do against an Argentina side who have looked in imperious form throughout the tournament, especially when hammering Paraguay 6-1 in the semi-finals.

Messi to win his first major trophy with Argentina? You'd be a brave man to bet otherwise.

Tour de France Live, TG4, 12.10pm

Live British Grand Prix, BBC One, 12.15pm, Sky Sports 1, 12.30pm

Can anybody stop him? Furthermore, will somebody please stop him from wearing ridiculous glasses/sunglasses combinations like this ever again?

Gabby Logan presents the highlights from Saturday night's event in Paris, which is due to feature the great Usain Bolt amongst others.

Two absolute cracking provincial finals to look forward to on Sunday, the traditional meeting of age-old rivals Kerry and Cork in Killarney and a repeat of the 2012 Leinster and All-Ireland finals between Galway and Kilkenny in Croke Park.

The Gooch is one of a number of high-profile Kerry stars to be kept in reserve by Eamonn Fitzmaurice, while, just like the county hurlers, the Cork footballers could do with delivering a big performance to silence the critics.
