In  rugby – our world famous tips for the Women’s RWC in Whangarei:  Australia to lamington Wales, New Zealand to pavlova Scotland, Fiji to  fruit salad France and in Auckland – Italy to tiramisu Japan, Canada to  cherry apple pie the USA and England to bread and butter pudding South  Africa.

Papua  New Guinea Kumuls flyer, Xavier Coates and Fullback Edene Gebbie are  heading home after suffering tournament-ending injuries. The Melbourne  Storm Wing missed the PNG Kumuls’ first clash against Tonga due to a  hamstring injury, and now will be flying home with Gebbie.

In football – Liverpool  legend Steven Gerrard has been sacked as Aston Villa Manager barely an  hour after his side collapsed to a 3-0 loss to promoted Fulham. Villa  have won just two of their 11 games this season and Gerrard won just  four of his 22 games in charge from last season.

In  boxing – Sunday’s UFC280 in Abu Dhabi will be massive with the main  event featuring Charles Oliveira (21-8 UFC) versus Islam Makhachev (11-1  UFC) for the vacant Lightweight title. In the co-main event, TJ Dillashaw (13-4 UFC) takes on Bantamweight Champion Aljamain Sterling (13-3 UFC).

Only in America – the NBA is expected to net at least US$75Billionfor  its next media rights package starting in 2025. It boasts rising  superstars like Ja Morant and Jayson Tatum with global appeal, plus a  tech-savvy audience of younger consumers used to streaming services.

ABC/ESPN and TNT pay the NBA a total US$2.6B annually, but the footprint of pay cable operators is shrinking radiply.

Just last year, ESPN’s distribution shrank 10% to 76 million US homes — a 24% drop from a high of 100 million a decade ago.

Meanwhile  the gorillas in the room – cash-rich Amazon and Apple are expanding  into streaming live sports with each boasting market capitalizations of  over US$1Trillion.
