In rugby union

Hooray for upsets at the McDonald’s Fiji’s Coral Coast 7s at sunny Lawaqa Park RugbyTown yesterday!

And it started early too, in the McDonald’s Men comp’s pool B, where Fire doused the Zack Test-coached USA Falcons 5-22, followed by McDonald’s Saunaka beating EMS Tabadamu with two converted tries to Ratumaitavuki 14 zip in pool D.

In Round 2 of the Men’s comp, despite Pacific Nomads losing heavily to BDK Yalovata 43 nil and the USA Falcons falling again – this time to Ba Originals 14-10, the Sir Gordon Tietjens-coached Ambassador All Stars “titched” Devo Babas 5-26 with tries to Rico Syme, Fletcho Carpenter, Gaspo Lalli and Sairo Vunisa.

The New Zealand 7s Development side also recorded a good win, just pipping Ravuka 15-17.

In the final McDonald’s Men game of day one, Army ambushed Ratu Filise 12-19.

So Army, Fire, New Zealand Development 7s, Fiji Babars and McDonald’s Saunaka teams all recorded two-out-of-two wins and so are looking good for the quarterfinals late today.

In the Shangri-La Yanuca Island Fiji Women’s comp, Fresh’et Navy sailed into port late and scored two good wins to lead pool C, while champions Seahawks had their make-up smudged by Matakesi 22-7 to prise open pool A.

In pool B, Mount Masada and the beauties from Kadavu lead a tight race for top spot with two wins apiece.

In the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort Youth games watch out for Japan SDS U18 in pool B. They played some excellent rugby 7s yesterday with wins over Dominion Bros Youth 17-22 and the Barbarians 7-28.

The Fiji U20 lead pool A and Southland Broncos head pool D also with two wins each heading into day two, while pool C is wide open.

Games in the McDonald’s Fiji’s Coral Coast 7s kick off today at 9am, with the Women’s and Youth competitions running through until about 1pm, before the Men’s games kick in until 3.30pm.

From then on it’s finals playoffs games, with the Women’s Cup quarterfinals from 3.25pm followed by the Youth Cup quarters from 4.45pm.

The Men’s competition restarts at 12.55pm, with their Cup quarter finals kicking off at 6.05pm.

In rugby league

The Broncos have rejected a release request from Tristan Sailor to take up a lucrative deal with the Leigh Leopards in the UK Super League.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting the Broncos want to keep Sailor as a back-up to Reece Walsh after he signed an extension with Brisbane through until the end of the 2025 season.

Sailor was outstanding as a fill-in for Walsh in four games last season and his added value is, that he can cover multiple backline positions.



In football

Manchester United’s failure to advance out of UEFA Champions League pools this season has forced the Club to lower its 2024 fiscal revenue forecast by nearly US$20Million. 

After originally expecting to bring in US$862M, Man U is now only projecting US$843M, with the additional prize funds of the Champions League no longer attainable.

In SportsBiz

$31,500,000 – that’s the fees that the Raine Group will collect for advising Manchester United owners, the American Glazer family on bringing in new investor, British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe, who acquired a 25% stake in the English Premier League Club for US$1.3Billion according to Bloomberg.

In combat sports

Top British promoter cum fighter Manager, Eddie Hearn has bet US$1Million on his fighter, Anthony Joshua beating former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, managed by Frank Warren, who has happily taken the bet for when the two fighters clash in Saudi Arabia in March.

And that’s a wrap!
