In rugby – the Springbok women play their “final” on Sunday against Fijiana, the one team they have a chance of beating in Pool C of the Women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. Fijiana is ranked 21st and this is the one game the Boks can definitely win. Equally so it is a do or die game for Fijiana.
In rugby league – The Rugby League World Cup kicks off on Saturday as England take on Toa Samoa at St James’ Park. Straight after that battle in Newcastle, the Australian Kangaroos take on the Fiji Bati at Headingley as they begin the defence of their title which they won in 2013 and 2017.
