Peter Ebdon progressed to the semi-finals of the Australian Open with a narrow 5-4 victory over Shaun Murphy in the last eight to set up clash with Marco Fu, who thrashed world number eight Stephen Lee 5-1, on Saturday morning.
Barry Hawkins and Mark Davis meet in the day's other semi after quarter-final victories over Matthew Selt and Martin Gould respectively. Live streaming from Bendigo commences at 04000 BST.
Rugby league fans must have been given a bit of a shock last weekend as Melbourne Storm were given a hiding by Canberra Raiders to bust the coupons so can we expect more surprises this weekend?
The Storm remain the favourites for both Regular Season and Grand Final glory in spite of the 40-12 setback at home, although their advantage at the top of the table has been eradicated by the Canterbury Bulldogs – albeit having played a game more.
Craig Bellamy’s men were certainly given a wake-up call with that defeat to a team currently out of the play-off picture, and it remains to be seen whether punters will think twice before backing the Storm.
However, the league leaders are strong favourites to bounce back to winning ways this week when they take on North Queensland Cowboys.
In football, there are several live streaming fixtures on offer with J-League action kicking things off at 1000 when Shimizu S-Pulse face Kashiwa Reysol.
There'll be plenty of interest in Shanghai Shenhua's Chinese Super League fixture with Beijing Guoan at 1230, as Didier Drogba looks set to make his debut for big spending Shenhua.
Fellow big spenders Paris Saint Germain meanwhile, begin their pre-season preparations in earnest when they take on CSKA Moscow at 1600.
