2022 Commonwealth Games - Birmingham

The Naitch

Recommended Posts

Some really odd stuff going on in the men's hockey.

Scotland played (and won) this morning without their captain Alan Forsyth, who was suspended after an incident against Pakistan, where he accidentally clipped an opponent on the chin with his stick while being fouled by said opponent. No action was taken against him at the time by the umpires, but he was subsequently banned for "breaching the code of conduct by not immediately apologizing".

Meanwhile, the Canadian player who was red carded for grabbing an English player by the throat is playing against Pakistan, as apparently a disciplinary panel found there was no further sanction required.

There has been no official announcement by the FIH on either incident, and it basically sums up the standard of officiating on and off the pitch across the tournament

Have we got a chance of catching India in the medal table.  The bowls boy I guess is in with a chance of gold.  Laura Muir must have a shot in both the 800 and 1500.  Any other gold medal hopes?

Jake Wightman is world champion in the mens 1500. Josh Kerr is also a medal shot in that. 

I would guess McColgan is an outside shot at the 5,000m and the are also a few guys still in contention in the boxing.
