It's the third major of the year!

All eyes will be on the biggest names in golf as they hit the links at Royal Birkdale Golf Club.

3. TOUR DE FRANCE

We're in the final stretch of the Tour de France...

And things are heating up as to who will obtain the yellow jersey.

Defending champion Chris Froome will need to make some massive strides to get France's Romain Bardet and Colombia's Rigoberto Urán off his trail...

Also keep an eye out for our very own Louis Meintjes, who is second in the green jersey standings...

4. SUPER RUGBY EXTRAVAGANZA!

We're down to the final eight (well actually seven considering the Hurricanes have already advanced to the semi-final)!

But it's the Super Rugby quarter-finals and their are three mouthwatering fixtures to keep you entertained all Saturday.

We first travel to Christchurch, where the Crusaders will take on the Highlanders once again in their Kiwi derby (09:35 SA time). Then we're in Johannesburg for the South African derby, as the Lions host the Sharks (Kick-off is at 14:30) and then we end off in Cape Town, where the Stormers will battle against the Chiefs (Kick-off is at 17:00).

Who will reign supreme? Will we see any upsets? All these questions and more will be answered on Sport24...
