Mark Percival’s late try welcomes Justin Holbrook to St Helens with derby win

• St Helens 22-19 Wigan• Mark Percival’s second try edges thrilling derby against WiganSt Helens celebrated Justin Holbrook’s first game as head coach by edging one of the most thrilling derby fixtures in recent years as Mark Percival’s late try secured a dramatic victory against Wigan.Holbrook watched on from the stands last week as Saints beat Hull 45-0 at Magic Weekend: but this was always going to be a far more nerve-jangling experience for the Australian in his maiden outing as coach – and neither team disappointed throughout as rugby league’s greatest rivalry lived up to the billing once again.

L'Amant Double review – camp-classic status beckons for François Ozon's softcore silliness

The director of Jeune et Jolie returns with another slice of erotica-lite, in this tale of an ex-model in therapy who ends up with two lovers – who are twinsThe softcore silliness and lite-erotic stylings of François Ozon’s horribly middleweight psycho-suspense thriller may yet give it camp classic status, like a super-porny version of Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected. There’s admittedly a cheeky wit to the opening visual gag, which converts a gynaecological image into a crying eye. And it has what future cultural historians may come to think of as the best female strap-on scene since Myra Breckinridge. Who knows? Continue reading...

Lil Yachty: Teenage Emotions review – idiotic, startling and brilliant outsider rap

(Universal)If you are a hip-hop fan who considers a rapper’s talent as directly proportional to the size of his or her vocabulary, and for whom the phrase “back in the day” is always accompanied by a wistful sigh, prepare for your worst nightmare in zeitgeist-surfing 19-year-old Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty. There are certainly some idiotic moments on his 21-song debut LP. On one chorus, he just says “Harley” over and over again, while, on Better, presumably floundering for a word that rhymes with “whatever” and “clever”, he shoehorns in the name Trevor. His mum will be charmed by the song dedicated to her, less so by him telling a female house guest, on DM Freestyle, that “there’s piss all in the bathroom, bitch go clean it up”.There is a fundamental misunderstanding of woodwind instrumentation when he says another young lady can “blow that dick like a cello”. There are precious few punchlines and still fewer original images – just a zoetrope of sex, money and Xanax. Continue reading...

Oscar De La Hoya: boxing may not recover from a McGregor-Mayweather fight

UFC star McGregor says he has agreed a deal to fight boxing greatMayweather, 40, has not fought since September 2015 Few people see the proposed Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight as anything other than a money-making sideshow. But just in case anyone is on the fence, Mayweather’s former rival in the ring, Oscar De La Hoya, has written an open letter attacking the putative bout as a “farce” that will hurt boxing. “To my fellow boxing fans, I write in the hopes that together we can protect the sport of boxing,” De La Hoya, who is now a promoter, wrote. “With each passing day, it looks more and more likely that the circus known as Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor will be coming to town in the near future. As undercard fights start to take form, athletic commissions give their blessings in exchange for millions of dollars, and the fighters start counting even more cash, one group will eventually be left to make sure this farce doesn’t occur – we, the fans, who are the lifeblood of our sport ... Our sport might not ever recover.” Continue reading...
