In rugby league

Only two clubs haven’t recruited any players ahead of the 2024 season, while the Bulldogs, almost shockingly, have a third of their squad as new faces.

How is your NRL Club shaping up, as we await the pre-season challenge to see new faces don their Club’s jerseys.

Some Clubs have recruited big-name players slated to make a huge impact on their respective teams, like Luke Brooks at the Sea Eagles and Jack Wighton at South Sydney.

Others, however, have made savvy signings, hoping to improve deficiencies in their squad.

Is your Club set?

In combat sports

UFC Middleweight Champion Sean Strickland has posted a video on his Instagram page in which an alleged domestic violence suspect, sought to hide out at Strickland’s house after apparently trying to outrun security — and Strickland held the man at gunpoint.

“Here’s what I know….,” Strickland explains: “The guy was drunk stomping out a girl, a security guard seen it, the guy jumped in his car and drove off. Security followed him, he hit a curb, completely shredded his tire, drove on the rim for a while then jumped out and tried to hide at my house.”

“I initially thought he was stealing my car.”

Strickland added that the suspect was arrested.

In SportsBiz

Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been hit with a US$1Billion class action lawsuit for promoting under-fire cryptocurrency exchange Binance.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in the Southern District of Florida on Monday, alleges that Ronaldo’s promotion of Binance was “deceptive and unlawful” and convinced them to invest in “unregistered securities” like Binance’s own cryptocurrency, BNB.

Ahead of the 2022 World Cup, the Portuguese star partnered with Binance to release a range of NFTs – celebrating his life.

The collection of seven animated statues ranged in starting price from US$77 to US$10,000, but the value has collapsed in the last 12 months to around US$1 per NFT currently.

Ronaldo is not the first celebrity to face a lawsuit over their promotion of cryptocurrency exchanges or online assets – last year a raft sports stars and Hollywood celebrities including Tom Brady, Stephen Curry, and Naomi Osaka were named as defendants in a class-action lawsuit against FTX.

And that’s a wrap!
