Weekend Sport Preview - 26 May: Rugby, F1 and Tennis

F1: Monaco Grand Prix


Another weekend, another bonanza of gripping sports drama to look forward to. Here's what's in store over the next few days...

Rugby: Gallagher Premiership Final - Saracens v Sale

How to watch: Live 2pm, Saturday, BT Sport 1

Saturday afternoon is all about rugby, as Saracens, who are still smarting from last year's Premiership final defeat to Leicester, seek redemption against Sale. The north London club were denied by a last-minute Freddy Burns drop goal in 2022, and the devastating manner of that defeat must surely mean they'll be laser-focused on lifting their sixth title at this time of asking, a feat that would take them level with Bath and Wasps on the all-time list. Sarries will be favourites, having finished top of the league in regular season, but Sale have enjoyed an excellent campaign, epitomised by their magnificent 21-13 victory over holders Leicester in the semi-final. 

Keep an eye on the key match-up at fly-half, where England stars Owen Farrell (Saracens) and George Ford (Sale) both have the potential to make a decisive impact.

F1: Monaco Grand Prix

How to Watch: Live 12.30pm, Sunday, Sky Sports F1

F1 heads to the French Riviera for one of the most glamorous and challenging races in the calendar​. World championship leader Max Verstappen is vying for a second win at the Monaco street circuit having taken the chequered flag in 2022, and, given the Dutchman's dominance so far this season, it wouldn't be a surprising outcome. However, the circuit tends to throw up some of the most unpredictable races in the sport, so don't be surprised if Aston Martin, Ferrari and Mercedes manage to close the gap on the Red Bull cars and upset the status quo.

Tennis: French Open

How to watch: Watch every match on Discovery+

The second Grand Slam of the year gets underway on Sunday, and it will feel quite different with 14-time champion Rafael Nadal absent due to a hip injury. What it does mean is that there's a chance for a new generation of men's singles stars to shine, like Nadal's compatriot, the 20-year-old sensation Carlos Alcaraz, or 21-year-old Italian Jannick Sinner. Daniil Medvedev and Novak Djokovic will also be tough to beat.

In the women's competition, two-time winner and defending champion Iga Swiatek is a fearsome competitor on clay, with Aryna Sabalenka likely to offer the stiffest resistance.

Meanwhile, with Andy Murray focusing on his grass court game ahead of Wimbledon and Emma Raducano recovering from hand and ankle surgery, British hopes rest on Cameron Norrie and Jack Draper.
