Blitzbokke make a stop in Mossel Bay.  Big win for Bianca Buitendag on home soil.

Four boys and their coach still trapped in the cave, but the rescuers have done wonders until now.  

Brexit on the ropes.  EU determined not to allow Trump to destroy their new tax stream.  Trump in Europe to meet with NATO and Putin – expect some shifts in allegiances?

Someone has realised that the SAPS cannot be trusted with the safe storage of confiscated firearms.  The ANC’s land-restoration drive is now so riddled with hypocrisy, but desperation for votes drives one to do crazy things.  

JSE looks up on the news of a likely soft Brexit.  Nedbank takes over the running of VBS. but it’s too little too late.

Kevin Anderson to face Roger Federer.  Ravin Claasen and partner through to the QF’s.  Froome back in contention at the TdF.  SA Netball looking to host the World Cup.  Blitzbokke focus on San Francisco.
