An ill wind has been blowing through local sport this past week. Firstly it was the Cape Town Cycle Tour that surrendered to the dreaded South Easter, as for the first time in its 40 year history, the organisers had to pull the plug on said event.

Over in London, while SANZAR debated the merits of a 15 team tournament, it looks like Stormers fans are taking matters into their own hands. So while the men in suits debated the Cheetahs and Southern Kings fate, this particular supporter is already evicting Kings fans from the arena. Still, it's an 18 team tournament for now, so let's enjoy it while it lasts, and between ourselves here at Gallo Images as well as Getty Images, we pretty much have all angles and teams covered.

Another victim to fall foul of boardroom discussions this week was the Durban Commonwealth Games, due to take place in 2022. Sadly, Africa won't get to host its first major multi-sport event, it looks like either the United Kingdom or Australia are in line to host this particular event.

Sporting events that are actually happening on these shores include the conclusion to the Momentum One Day Cup as we enter the final week of the round robin phase, while Varsity Cup rugby is also reaching the end of the league phase this coming Monday.
