We’re celebrating UVA’s championship season and have a super newspaper planned for this Sunday

The RTD Sports team made it back home after covering the NCAA Championship in Minneapolis, but the pace hasn’t slowed down this week at The Times-Dispatch. From covering the UVA men’s basketball team when they returned to Charlottesville on Tuesday, to dedicating the rest of the week to creating a special section for this Sunday’s newspaper, we’re still playing hard at the RTD. Look for our UVA special section in this Sunday’s Times-Dispatch along with additional sections dedicated to the Monument Avenue 10k and Autism Awareness Month. And don’t forget – they’re racing under the lights at Richmond Raceway this weekend and we’ll have complete coverage in print and on Richmond.com.

Lomu's legacy looms over NZ-England World Cup semifinal

FILE - In this June 18, 1995 file photo, New Zealand All Blacks winger Jonah Lomu runs around England's Will Carling on his way to score the opening try in the Rugby World Cup semifinal at Newlands in Cape Town, South Africa. One trampling run launched Jonah Lomu to global stardom and ensured his name will be indelibly linked to a Rugby World Cup semifinal between New Zealand and England. The All Blacks winger’s rampaging runs during that era-defining World Cup in South Africa in 1995 were highlighted by his four-try haul against England in the semifinals. New Zealand and England meet again in the semifinals this Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, at Yokohama.
