“Yeah... yeah... No”
I’ve been watching for five minutes, how many times does he let him go back in?!?

That dude has some fast fists, my god.
Though, the ref should have called it before that happened.
This is me saying I haven't had too much to drink right before my next shot
After convincing myself I'm ready to start the day
Just straight down the middle. He never stood a chance
Charlo no he can't!
He can count to two. Three is too much.
"Yo, you good?" "Ye- No, no I'm not."
Ref didn't even check. Wtf that was unsafe.
He nods and says “yeah, I’m fine!” With a confident grin.
Cota is my meat, Charlo is me and the ref is my brain thinking things should be fine at this funeral
Me checking on my stock transmission before my new turbo kicks in
Not his fault. It was a bunting situation needed to advance the runner.
I don't get it, what did he hit that a piece flew out like that?
I know all of those words but that sentence makes no sense.
My grandkids: who was the best batsman of your generation?
Me: Steve Smith
My grandkids: why was he the best?
Me: .....this post
What does this mean?
I understand the title but it didn't need to be so full of jargon.
Wow is that even a sentence
Oh 20/20. What have you done?!
Did he actually hit it for six? The"trying" is confusing me.
Alrighty non-cricketers here's a non-smartass explanation of that very crickety title
"Upper Cut" refers to a shot where you hit the ball in the air over the wicket-keeper (our version of the catcher)'s head where there is never any fielders. It is a very unconventional shot that very few batsmen play in any kind of cricket.
A "half volley" is a delivery (pitch) that bounces quite close to the batsmen and is normally hit in front of them, in about the same sort of area as a legal delivery in baseball. That means that the shot he played (the uppercut) is even more outrageous because he should have played this forwards.
"Leg Stump" is one of the three stumps on either side of the middle one (those wooden white sticks in the ground), it's either side depending on the handedness of the batsmen, in this case he's a right hander so it's on the camera's side of the middle stump. The "uppercut" is even more difficult to play when the bowl is directed to that stump because your body is in the way, hence why he's fallen backwards to play the shot.
"third man" is a fielding position about where third base in baseball would be if you flipped the field in the opposite direction behind the stumps.
"for 6" is our equivalent to a home run, where the ball clears the boundary on the full, and is worth 6 runs
4th Ashes test is just the 4th match in a 5 test series of the oldest rivalry in world sport.
The guy batting is essentially solo carrying Australia. He's averaging 134 runs, the next best is an English player averaging 59 (most very good cricketers average 45-50 over their careers), and everyone else except one dude have been atrocious for Australia. He's completely dominated every time he's batted, however he's mostly been very patient and precise with his batting.
Yesterday Australia needed runs quickly to try and win the game so he started trying to bat very aggressively and still spanked England around. He's also just come back from a match off due to a concussion he got in the second test match.
If this was FIFA my controller is going through the wall.
The attacker’s reaction to that 2nd save makes it ten times better
What a save!
Chat disabled for 3 seconds.
Better goalkeeper than his goalkeeper
That's some anime shit right there
I see so much stuff on the internet I'm not really that impressed with most highlights. This is freaking impressive.
See you on r/all boys!
Maybe a hand ball on the second save? Guess not though. Amazing play.
Give that man a medal!
In that split second he thought to use bottom of the goalpoast to launch himself into defending the second ball. If it were me I'd be wiggling furiously to make it back.
I bet his favourite childhood anime character was Ishizaki from Captain Tsubasa.
Does all the goalie's work for him and the goalie slide tackles him for it. SMH so ungrateful.
Damn that was impressive
Haha the camera man in the background is watching, throws a hand up, then is even more stunned after the second save. Probably should have snapped a pic or two!
This is why you practice your one tap shots. The two extra seconds is an age for a world class defender like that dude. Revered direction guessed where the shot would be, got in the way, all while tucking his hands so it's not a handball. Give this man a raise.
The athleticism and forward-thinking of this play is just insane! What a save!
This is one of the best plays over seen in sports period
Definition of effort
This looks like Rocket League in real life
28: look at me, I’m the goalie now.
Goalie is pissed cuz he realizes he may soon be out of a job.
Best save ever
Nutting in my jeanies people, I am nutting in my jeanies
Will still do 10 times the job Muschamp is doing today.
Freeze will essentially videoconference with his team pregame and at halftime and do so during postgame press conference. The plan is to fly him to Louisiana next week to be with the team on the road.

Liberty head coach Hugh Freeze will work from a hospital bed in the coach's booth tonight, per LU Athletics.Freeze's staph infection is gone, but he's only two weeks into a 4-6 week recovery from surgery. He's most comfortable when reclined and plans to fly to ULL next week.

This is actually a rare view. F1 teams try to keep as much of their car hidden as possible as the technical development of their cars is even more crutial than who's behind the wheel.
This is Canadian driver, Lance Stroll's, car who's sidepannel came off during Practice today - which is how we got this view.
Sports fans: cool!
F1 fans: Grosjean shows us this on a weekly basis...
That's in Hawaii not Kenya.
So we are to believe his high school saw all that "greatness" as mediocre undistinguished basketball player in high school, someone thought "hey, Im gonna this jersey aside for future generations to slobber over".
Not buying a word of this
Link to LA Times article
What was his stat line?
This was from a shootout back in 2011. The spin-o-rama move is prohibited now since 2015.
Isn't that illegal?
Always liked him as a Leaf. Also always knew he'd get crushed in a huge hit at least once a game lol
I have so much respect for hockey players. This sport looks so difficult. I could never
Does he still have that big spot on on his forehead?
Link to the TD run
Fucking hell, his speed and acceleration though! He flies.
Really cool to see someone from England in the NFL and doing well!
Shady low-key worried about his job.
This program is gonna create some monsters. I love it.
Such a cool reaction from the bench
Damn. I didn't know Christian Wade had left rugby. Should have played more for England. Fast f*ucker. Good luck to 'im.
"Why doesn't everyone just do this?" - Wade
Here we go, another foreigner taking our precious jobs. /s
I have no clue about American football but I've seen Wade play rugby plenty of times. He was always a quality attacking player but lacked a bit defensively and under the high ball which seemed to stop him from ever breaking into the England side fully. Not sure how much those skills will impact him in American football but I hope he does well.
Apparently he ran a 4.53 at his pro day. He looks faster than that.
He completely fucking scorched that safety.
Wade was an outstanding rugby player.
From this one clip, how good does he perform vs your expectations of an outstanding football player?
What does he do well?What is unexpected?Are there any negatives?
Lol you can tell he so badly wanted to hold that ball like a rugby ball during his breakaway.
Good for him.
Rugby players need vision and a sick ability to cut and that's what he did.
At least he didn't follow his instincts and ground the ball in the end-zone.
Congrats Mr. Wade!
Jesus that dude is fast!! Anybody know his 40 time?
Thumbs up for Wade. Bills Mafia
I saw a bunch of “scouts” on twitter saying it doesn’t count because it’s 4th qtr preseason, but you don’t have to be a pro scout to realize he hit that hole super fast.
I'll take anyreason to root for the bills
My oldest sister was a Buffalo Jills Cheerleader back in the 90's for a few years
Can I finally say I'm proud of my hometown team?
Hes a rugby superstar?
Dude was insanely fast. He'll do well.
That was amazing! I’m hyped for the dude.
the red-headed lady in the back almost looks like she's going into the group hug too!
I had no idea that such a program existed. How does it work?
Is he signed?
‘An international rugby superstar’ - couldn’t get a look in for the England national team so quit to play American football
A pretty good English born rugby player at that!
Wade is the joint 3rd all time try scorer in the English Premiership. Had he not moved sports he would have likely ended up breaking the record by some margin as he is considerably younger than those ahead of him.
Unfortunately, while a prolific try-scorer, other areas of his game were not considered strong enough for him to play for England more than a handful of times, which I suspect is why he decided to switch sports.
People forgot about Jerrod Hayne and the 49ers.
Wish I could see his face. If his teammates are smiling like that, imagine the smile on his face.
Where do we draft him? Mid 5th round? Lol
He carries the ball high and tight just like rugby players do!
I smell a Madden ‘21 cover!
go bills baby
While impressive and I hope he makes the roster and excels, it's not an NFL carry.
Preseason stats are not official in any way.
That was freaking awesome!!!!
Fucking immigrants playing our sports now?
Still will never be enough to carry the Bills to a Superbowl.
Running from the cops speed
Preseason. Don’t care.
What are the chances his teammates make 21 Savage jokes?
Didn't the 49ers try this with Jerrod Hayne already? That experiment crashed and burned.
Anyone else feel bad that you played football for years and never really had a chance at going to the next level, and now there’s a rugby player in the NFL playing well at the professional level who probably never touched a football until relatively recently?
Congrats to him though, that’s awesome. I’m not bitter, just jelly.
No wonder the bills are garbage, they have English players
What stood out to me was how he actually held the ball while running full speed. It seemed to be particularly high and moved very little compared to what I'm used to seeing in football. Maybe my imagination?
