Re: American Broadcast Schedule for the Rugby World Cup

My friend tells me that the full match replays are available on ITV player without any problems using ExpressVPN, but the quality isn’t as quite as good as he usually gets, speed test to the UK server is 5.8 down and 122 ping. What are your friend’s experiences?

My friend will be hoping that ITV moves games to ITVPlayer on demand within 2 hours of the match finishing so he can watch them at sensible times, obviously this means a media blackout until he's gets to watching the game.

Re: Tour de France 2019

Great TDF, thoroughly enjoyable, I always liked AP, but he’s an even classier ride than I previously thought, just a great around rider and human being. Irrespective of the two shortened stages, the outcome would have been exactly the same, Bernal first and Thomas runner up. Roll on 2020.

If Kruijswijk and Buchmann fall as well, then I don't see why Thomas doesn't go for it. Chances then though would be very small as officially 1'16" gap. Ineos do not have the muscle to drop Kruijswijk nor Buchman nor Landa, not even Porte or Barguil actually. Their train may be enough to drop an ex...
