Bet Central’s Moments of the Weekend: 24-26 July
The team at Bet Central and watched a lot of sport this weekend so check out our list of things we loved from the sporting weekend.
Canes break the Saders streak
Super Rugby Aotearoa just keeps on producing quality week on week and this weekend was no different. The Hurricanes did the unlikely, they beat the dynastic Crusaders at home for the first time since 2016 – ending a 36-match winning streak.
Lingard breaks punters heart
Antony Johnson must have been thinking about how he would spend his money after placing (what seemed to be a superb) punt on Jesse Lingard not getting a goal or an assist the entire season.
Johnson was on track to pick up his winnings until Lingard decided to score with Manchester United’s last kick of the season, literally, the last kick of the season.

Scenzeny gives Sarri a lung-warming gift
Juventus extended their Serie A dominance after sealing a ninth successive Scudetto after beating Sampdoria.
It was manager Maurizio Sarri’s first league title and Juve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny gave him the most meaningful gift post-match.

Kemar Roach 200th wicket
Kemar Roach became the first West Indian bowler since Curtly Ambrose in March 1994 to reach 200 Test wickets. A crazy stat considering the Windies historic excellence in the bowling department.
Kemar Roach becomes the 9th bowler to take 200+ Test wickets for the West Indies; joining Walsh, Ambrose, Marshall, Gibbs, Garner, Holding, Sobers & Roberts

KDB equals King Henry
Kevin de Bruyne has arguably been the best player in the Premier League despite his side falling well short in the title race. On Sunday, he equalled the great Thierry Henry’s 20 assists in a season record which is pretty remarkable statistic considering the number of great players we’ve seen in the league over the past two decades.
In 2019/20, not only did Kevin De Bruyne equal Thierry Henry’s Premier League assist record, he set a new one for most chances created from open play in a single season – beating Eden Hazard’s tally of 98 from 2014/15.
