In rugby union & league

The Kangaroos have retained No.1 spot in the IRL World Rankings, despite suffering a record 30-0 loss to the Kiwis in the final of the Pacific Cup in Hamilton, New Zealand last month – their biggest loss in 115 years!

The Kiwis remain second, ahead of England, who are now No.3 on the back of a 3-0 series win against Tonga (4) and Samoa (5) suffering a 50-0 loss to Michael Maguire’s record-breaking New Zealand team and a 38-12 defeat by Australia in the Pacific Championships.

The Papua New Guinea Kumuls are sixth, Fiji Bati seventh, France and Lebanon are next, with the Cook Islands rounding out the top 10.



In football & SportsBiz

Remember when the European Super League made a big splash in 2021?

Well the European Court of Justice has just ruled that the actions of FIFA and UEFA in squashing it was achieved by “abusing a dominant position” in football.

“The FIFA and UEFA rules making any new interclub football project subject to their prior approval, such as the Super League, and prohibiting clubs and players from playing in those competitions, are unlawful,” the court said.

UEFA said, though, that it acted in liaison with fans — who were the main force against the Super League when it first reared its head as the pinnacle of European football club competition.

Nine of the 12 clubs involved — including six from the English Premier League — threw in the towel almost immediately, leading to the collapse of the Super League within 48 hours of its launch.

Two years on, only Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona have not stood down from the project, with Juventus withdrawing in July.

In Combat Sports

“My main focus is on Otto Wallin right now. I know where I’m going in my life. But if I don’t get past this, then there is no future,” Anthony Joshua on his fight tomorrow against a nobody, seriously – a punching bag who Deontay Wilder knocked out inside one round.

Only in America

The Los Angeles Dodgers pulled out all the stops to land Japanese baseball superstar Shohei Ohtani recently, including a big sales pitch from the land of the . . not so living!

You guessed it – the Dodgers used the late great NBA star Kobe Bryant.

According to ESPN, the Dodgers showed a six-year-old recorded video message from Kobe as part of their pitch to land Ohtani – OK, apart from a 10-year, US$700Million contract.

In 2017, Bryant made the minute-long video for the Dodgers as a favor in pursuit of Ohtani, but he instead signed with the Angels.

Not this time – the big Mamba got his man!

And that’s a wrap!
