Hello. Russky here, Please join me from 4pm for the build up and match text commentary as our own beloved Cardiff Devils travel to Altrincham Arena to face the Manchester Storm.
If you have any comments or predictions please email them to email@example.com. Also if you want a 'shout out' on the coverage use the aforementioned email addy too. I will be posting the latest scores from the other three games taking place today.
Right, i am off to sort out my sunday lunch and watch the rugby, catch you all later.
Well the F1 has finished, the Tennis is still going on despite the fact GB have already won the match and Wales' havent really had to get out of second gear at the Rugby!
There are 3 other games today: Blaze host the Panthers, Capitals entertain Fife and finally Braehead travel to Dundee.
My erstwhile texters have been located and primed. My thanks today go to Jon Wildthing and Colin, who are travelling with the mass ranks of the mighty Devils' Red Army.
Blaze Panthers game faces off fifteen minutes after the Devils/Storm game
Edinburgh/Fife start at 5:30 and Braehead/ Dundee are on the late shift, starting at 6:30, so we wont be able to bring you the result of that before we finish here.
No predictions yet, but feel free to send yours to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post here it before the end of the first period.
Again, once our game starts, I will only post the latest scores from the other games during the period breaks unless its a very quiet and uneventful game at the Altrincham Arena. But I doubt that!!!!
Wales are winning 47-9 with 5 minutes remaining in the game, followed by the All Blacks v Pumas (New Zealand v Argentina for the uninitiated! )
just time for a cuppa now before it all kicks off!!!
Final Score Wales 54 Uruguay 9
we have our first two predictions! Both Anthony Lewis Kevin Batch go for a 5-3 Devils win
5-3 is proving to be a popular scoreline! Gareth Brookes also predicts this scoreline.
I wont give out the F1 result yet as the highlights start on BBC1 shortly! Email me if you are desparate to know the result!
No I havent nodded off! I am still here!
No doubt the Red Army have settled into their seats at the Altrincham Arena. It must seem like a home from home as it is a virtual replica of the BBT in structure and interior appearance.
No doubt the Red Army are singing Loud and Proud!
John Wildthing says the PA is awful so catching the game announcements are going to be fun!!
we should be underway by now, wondering is there is a delay for some reason!
