+

Twenty years old, 11 days into his rookie season, up by one, 6.4 on the clock, Scottie Barnes walked to the free-throw line in Indianapolis. He heard boos and thundersticks. It was Barnes' second road game as a member of the Toronto Raptors. He'd missed three of his four free-throw attempts. If he was feeling any nerves whatsoever, he had a strange way of showing it. We're down to the final two matches of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, with England and South Africa in Saturday's final match.
