Weekend sport preview — 28 April: Rugby, F1, Tennis and Golf

Weekend sport preview - 28 April


All set for a weekend of sport? We’ve got you covered — be sure to catch these four highlights over the next few days…

Women's Six Nations: England v France

England's women are seeking a fifth consecutive Six Nations title in Saturday's historic match at Twickenham, which looks set to be played in front of a record 53,000 crowd, eclipsing the 42,579 fans who watched their World Cup final defeat to New Zealand inside Auckland's Eden Park last November

The Red Roses face France, who they've beaten 11 times in a row — most recently a 13-7 win in the 2022 World Cup pool stage. As highly-decorated head coach Simon Middleton steps down after the match, he'll be hoping to end on a high note, and will be bolstered by the return of skipper Marlie Packer and prop Hannah Botterman, who've bounced back from injuries.

How to watch: Live from 1pm, Saturday, BBC Two

F1: Azerbaijan GP

Formula 1 returns this weekend after a month-long hiatus, and the burning question is, can anyone close the gap on championship leader Max Verstappen? It looks unlikely given the Dutchman's domination so far—he holds a 15-point advantage over teammate Sergio Perez in the drivers' championship, while the dominant Red Bull Team is 58 points ahead of Aston Martin in the constructors' standings. Mercedes is among the teams that have spent the past few weeks making significant updates to their cars, so it'll be interesting to see if they can make strides on the Baku city circuit. Lewis Hamilton finished second last time out in Australia and will be eager for back-to-back podiums. Also, watch out for the all-new sprint races on Saturday, with the top eight  finishers set to score Championship points.

How to watch: All sessions are live on Sky Sports F1

Tennis: Madrid Open

As the French Open approaches, the clay courts of Madrid will offer a glimpse into potential frontrunners for Roland Garros' top honours. With Rafael Nadal's injury concerns, the focus shifts to fellow Spaniard and world No.1 Carlos Alcaraz, who has been in stellar form in 2023, securing three titles including the recent Barcelona Open. The 19-year-old, who claimed victory in Madrid in 2022, is emerging as a new powerhouse in tennis.

In the women's tournament, injuries have dominated headlines in the lead-up. Defending champion Ons Jabeur, Britain's Emma Raducanu, and former world No.1 Karolina Pliskova have all withdrawn. However, current rankings leader Iga Swiatek is expected to fiercely contend for the title.

LIV Golf Singapore

If last weekend's tournament in Adelaide was anything to go by, there should be plenty of entertainment — and spilt beer — when LIV Golf arrives in Singapore this weekend. The $21 million event takes place at the Sentosa Club and will see America's Talor Gooch looking to build on his first tournament victory last week, while Dustin Johnson's 4Aces aim to continue their winning streak in the team event. Australia's Cameron Smith, a popular figure in Adelaide, will join the competitors in Singapore, where they'll vie for the mega-money prize in the rebel circuit's fifth tournament of 2023.

How to watch: Live coverage is free on the LIV Golf Plus app.
