Warren Gatland says the British and Irish Lions will treat next weekend’s crucial Third Test against South Africa as a “cup final”. Saturday’s (August 7) final match in Cape Town will be a winner-takes-all series decider after the tourists were defeated 27-9 in the Second Test thanks to a dominant second-half display from the Springboks, who scored tries through Makazole Mapimpi and Lukhanyo Am and got 17 points in total from the boot of fly-half Handre Pollard. The Springboks executed a familiar gameplan to perfection after the interval to avoid the ignominy of losing a Lions series for the first time since 1997 with one match to spare following a second-half fightback from their opponents last weekend that saw them clinch the First Test 22-17.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — After so many miserable seasons, including a winless one four years ago, numerous coaching mistakes, front-office flubs and busted draft picks, Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam finally have a legitimate team. Maybe even a Super Bowl contender. They're optimistic __ and cautious. “Listen,” Jimmy Haslam said Saturday with a hint of warning at training camp. “With our record the previous few years, we’re realistic as to how hard it is to win in the NFL.” But Cleveland's strong
