The Six Nations returns this weekend after a two-week hiatus, with Ireland and Scotland both looking to maintain their perfect starts. The Italians will start this weekend’s clash as huge 9/1 outsiders, with the 10/11 handicap a massive +23 points. England recorded their first tournament victory with an unconvincing but ultimately sufficient 31-14 win over Italy last week to give Steve Borthwick his first victory as head coach. Scotland continue to develop as a side, adding a resounding 35-7 win over Wales last week to their Calcutta Cup success against England in their tournament opener. Gregor Townsend’s men look a shoo-in to improve on their fourth-placed finish last year and are second in the outright betting at 4/1 – realistically providing the only competition to runaway favourites Ireland.
Shortly after the text messages were released, Utah Democrats aiming not to split the anti-Lee vote decided to back McMullin rather than nominate a Democrat. McMullin has framed them as proof of how Lee’s transformation from onetime Trump critic to loyal supporter puts him at odds with Utah voters yearning for an alternative to the direction that Trump has taken the Republican Party. The faith’s support for refugees and culture that teaches self-restraint often clashes with the direction that Trump has taken the GOP. Members of the faith lean Republican, yet polling has shown Trump commands less robust support among them than other prominent GOP politicians. Trump failed to win support from a majority of Utah voters in 2016 and Joe Biden lost but performed better with Utah voters in 2020 than any Democrat since 1964.4 months ago Capitol Hill Blue

While not shocking that the Astros are here in the World Series once again, it is astonishing that the Phillies are left standing as National League Champions.

Players to WatchBryce Harper – Obviously, Bryce is a player to look out for on the big stage, especially when it’s his first World Series appearance.
