In rugby union – the Flying Fijians should have had a warm up game before playing Scotland last weekend. It is tough to go in cold against Tier One Test nations and it showed in a couple of soft tries for the Scots due to defensive lapses.
Ireland up next, will be a big test for Vern Cotter and his boys.
In rugby league – Toa Samoa will appeal the one-match suspension handed out to their Captain Junior Paulo, which means they will be without him for their Rugby League World Cup semi-final against England at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.
Paulo was issued with a Grade A charge against Tonga.
Rugby League World Cup organisers say the UK domestic broadcast audience for every game so far has totaled more than 18.7 million viewers on the BBC, with last Saturday’s quarter-final between England and Papua New Guinea peaking at 1.7 million.
Great exposure for PNG.
In football – Neymar has named France, Argentina, Germany, England and Belgium among his favourites for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar as he looks to lead Brazil to glory.
In boxing – Kiwi-Nigerian UFC superstar, Israel Adesanya has vowed not to “waste energy’ in the build-up to his UFC title clash when the UFC Middleweight Champion
takes on Brazilian KO artist Alex Periera at UFC281 at Madison Square Garden New York this weekend.
In athletics – Kenyan Evans Chebet survived brutal heat and humidity to win the New York City Marathon on Sunday after Brazilian Daniel Do Nascimento collapsed during the race.
The Brazilian set an aggressive pace and had a two-minute lead at the halfway mark but collapsed after mile 20, stunning onlookers.
In a surprise move, New York City Police officers assisted him instead of drawing their guns!
Chebet, who also won the Boston Marathon earlier this year, accelerated around mile 15 in a final surge to cross the finish line in two hours eight minutes and 41 seconds.
Ethiopian Shura Kitata finished second in 2:08:54 and Dutchman Abdi Nageeye took third.
