Rugby - British Lions

After successfully negotiating the warm-up matches, the Lions take on South Africa in the first test on Saturday. We’re tipping the tourists to fall just short in this one (SA to win by 1-12 points at 13/8 with Blue Square) but we’ll also have a wager on Jamie Heaslip to be first tryscorer at 33/1 with William Hill.

Wimbledon - Men's

After winning Queen’s, all eyes will be on Andy Murray for Wimbledon. But at a best-priced 11/4, there’s no value. Likewise with Federer, who is worthy of his favourite status but not to the extent of the even money odds. So our money’s again going on Nadal who’s at 5/1 with Expekt.

Wimbledon - Women's

Both Williams sisters are too short to back and world number one Dinara Safina is officially now a choker after Roland Garros. So we’re backing 2006 finalist Marion Bartoli each way at an over-priced 40/1 with Paddypower.
