In rugby union

Captains of the best 12 Men’s and Women’s rugby sevens teams in the world are in Perth, ahead of the hotly anticipated third round of HSBC SVNS 2024 starting tomorrow!

With victories in Dubai and Cape Town in December, Australia’s Women lead the standings, six points ahead of France and New Zealand and are set to go for another title on home soil where they will face Canada, Great Britain and South Africa in Pool A.

Rivals and reigning Series and Olympic champions New Zealand will meet USA, Ireland and Japan in Pool C, while France, Fiji, Brazil and Spain will compete in Pool B of the women’s competition.

In the Men’s comp, Argentina will take on Dubai champions South Africa in Pool A along with Canada and Spain. While Australia’s Men will play Ireland, Great Britain and USA in an exciting looking Pool B. Double Olympic champions Fiji face reigning Series title holders New Zealand as well as France and Samoa in a very tough Pool C.

In rugby league

The NZ Warriors have agreed to fly their former player Ronald Volkman to New Zealand and pay for the surgery on his injured shoulder.

For Volkman, it’s welcome news after what has been a brutal few weeks, with the young halfback left without a club for 2024 and career in limbo.

Volkman left the NZ Warriors at the end of last season to sign a 12-month deal for 2024 with the Saint George Dragons, however, that contract was torn up after the playmaker’s shoulder injury came to light.



In football

Ivory Coast has sacked their national team Manager Jean-Louis Gasset after their 4 nil thrashing by Equatorial Guinea capped a disappointing Africa Cup of Nations pool stage.

The AFCON host nation has a slim chance to qualify for the round of 16.

In SportsBiz

The NBA is less than four months away from opening up negotiations for its next set of US media rights deals.

Its deals with current broadcast partners – ESPN and TNT, worth US$24Billion in total, expire after the 2024-25 season, and the NBA will no doubt be looking for a huge increase.

The NBA has never sold an exclusive streaming package for the USA, and interested bidders apart from Amazon, ESPN, and TNT could include NBC and streamers like Apple and Netflix.

And one final look back as US Sports in 2023

And one final look back as US Sports in 2023:

  • · Saudi Arabia splurged billions on sports
  • · The streaming giants invaded live games
  • · In college football, the Pac-12 blew up
  • · Japanese baseball superstar Shohei Ohtani hit a US$700Million homer
  • · Crypto-currency took a nosedive, leaving some sports stars red-faced
  • · Sports media rights got a facelift and ESPN burped.

And that’s a wrap!
