    Coming to you with tons of hanisi from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Blue Continent.

    In rugby union: So with the Super Rugby Pacific season kicking off again this weekend, many fans are asking, and betting on the Fijian Drua making the semifinals after making the quarterfinals last year, losing to defending champions, the Crusaders.

    With their mercurial Coach, Scott Razor Robertson elevated to the All Blacks and now the loss of try-scoring machine, Will Jordan out for six months with a shoulder injury, the Crusaders will struggle in 2024.

    Or will they?

    In rugby league: The NRL Las Vegas Launch Week Activities includes:
    · NRL Las Vegas Combine Saturday 02 March 8am – 5pm at Game Changers Sports (AM) and UFC Performance Institute (PM). 50 High Performance Athletes will participate in a series of skills and physical tests to see if they’ve got what it takes to play in the NRL.

    · Pre-Game Fan Zone Saturday 02 March 3.30pm - 6.00pm Allegiant Stadium, Northern Car Park with DJ, fan activations, food and drink trucks, big screen, merchandise and more.

    · Sunday 03 March is the big dance with
    o Sea Eagles vs Rabbitohs at 1.30pm (AEDT)
    o Roosters vs Broncos at 3.30pm

    In combat sports: Now only weeks out from his historic Pay-Per-View headliner Stateside – a feat not even his Hall of Fame father achieved – this newest Aussie champ Tim Tszyu is being written up, shouted out, even linked to a potential Terence Crawford blockbuster.

    In Football: Everton midfielder Amadou Onana rescued a 1-1 draw against fellow strugglers Crystal Palace with a late equaliser just hours after former England Manager, Roy Hodgson stepped down and the Eagles hired Oliver Glasner as their new manager in a dramatic day yesterday.

    In SportsBiz: After record-low US TV viewership ratings for both the Tokyo and Beijing Olympics, France is determined to do the Paris Olympics differently - such as bringing athletes down the Seine for the opening ceremony, beach volleyball at the Eiffel Tower and equestrian at Versailles.

    It’s going to be really cool.

    And that’s a wrap!

    In combat sports: Robert Whittaker has confirmed he is ready to headline an Australian blockbuster later this year – and potentially for the UFC Middleweight title – after securing one of the gutsiest wins of his storied career.

    While it has now been five years since he wore the UFC Middleweight strap around his waist, the 33-year-old Sydneysider is suddenly right back in championship contention after defeating Brazilian Paulo Costa at UFC298 in Anaheim, California.

    In Football SportsBiz: France Captain Kylian Mbappe will leave PSG on a free transfer later this year, but the blow to the Club will be softened by an agreement reached last summer which will see Mbappe waive bonuses amounting to around 70 million euros.

    After seven seasons at PSG, Mbappe, the Club’s all-time top scorer with 274 goals, looks set to seal a move to Real Madrid, the Club that he has dreamed of playing for since he was a child.

    Fly Mbappe fly!

    And that’s a wrap!

    Coming to you with tons of hanisi from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Blue Continent.

    In rugby union: Watch out for France superstar halfback, Antoine Dupont at the SVNS Vancouver 7s this weekend.

    is currently in 7th place.

    In rugby league: The Dolphins secured an impressive 26-14 win over the Titans, with Wayne Bennett unleashing a number of big-name recruits like Centre Herbie Farnworth, scoring only seven minutes into his debut and fellow former Bronco, Tom Flegler got to work in the middle and ate up metres, delivering several trademark runs for his new team.

    In combat sports: Spaniard, Ilia Topuria’s time has come, capturing his first UFC title and improving his record to 15-0 with a stunning second-round KO of 35 year old Aussie, Alexander Volkanovski in UFC298 yesterday in California USA.

    Volkanovski had branded Topuria a “Conor McGregor wannabe” after the challenger updated his Instagram bio to “UFC World Champion” and “Undefeated 15-0” before their fight.

    Is Volks too old now?

    In SportsBiz: The WNBA gets US$25Million annually from ESPN, and another US$13M per year from Scripps Ion, in deals running through the 2025 season.

    In comparison, the NBA receives a combined US$2.6Billion annually from Disney and Warner Brothers Discovery.

    Finally in Paris Olympic news: Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao’s bid to fight at the Paris Olympic Games has been rejected by the International Olympic Committee.

    A special request for the former multi-weight World Champion to participate despite being over the age limit for Olympic boxers at 40 was denied.

    Coming to you with tons of hanisi from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Blue Continent.

    In rugby union: Top Kiwi rugby commentators have tipped a Crusaders versus Chiefs final in Super Rugby Pacific 2024, with Damian McKenzie winning it for the Chiefs.

    At the other end of the comp, they also tip Moana Pasifika as wooden spooners again!

    In rugby league: It was a sloppy start early but the Rabbitohs flexed their muscles in the second half to kick away from the Dragons for a 28-6 win in the Charity Shield.

    Souths wing Braidon Burns crossed for a second half double as the Rabbitohs outscored their rivals 22-0 after the main break.

    Meanwhile, Parramatta big man Ofahiki Ogden crashed over for the first try and things were looking ominous for Canberra when Sean Russell scored to make it 10-0 after 12 minutes.

    But the Raiders stormed back, scoring five unanswered tries on their way to a 38-16 win over the Eels in their Pre-season Challenge yesterday.

    In the NBA: The Lakers make a family pitch to keep LeBron James in LA.

    With speculation around whether James will exercise his US$51.4Million player option after this season, or enter free agency, the Los Angeles Lakers are willing to explore the option of adding his son, Bronny James, for the 2024-25 season, according to The Athletic.

    Bronny, a freshman at USC, can enter the 2024 NBA Draft, suffered a cardiac arrest in training in July, but the Lakers are willing to consider adding him to keep LeBron happy, and in LA.

    In combat sports: BIG drama in California yesterday as Aussie-Samoan heavyweight beast, Justin Tafa is out of UFC298, injured in his last training session less than 48 hours before his fight … no worries, his little brother, 115Kg Junior will replace him against Brazilian Marcos Rogerio de Lima.

    In SportsBiz: Data from Nielsen shows the final audience for Super Bowl LVIII reached an average of 123.7 million, reconfirming that game’s status as the largest single event in the history of US television.

    It represents a 7.4% boost from a year ago, but across multiple segments, women showed even greater levels of growth, thanks to – you know who.

    Women aged between 18–24 watching the game on CBS and Univision posted a 24% jump over Super Bowl LVII viewers, while girls aged 12–17 posted an 11% jump.

    So women overall logged a 9% increase to 58.8 million viewers, or 47.5% of the game’s total audience.

    So the big question for the NFL is – will Taylor Swift marry or drop Travis Kelce in 2025?

    And that’s a wrap!

    This, after the Kiwi drove more than seven hours in and out of Auckland for an early morning coffee ahead of the Super Rugby Pacific season launch on Wednesday in New Zealand.

    Instead of walking into his living room and jumping on a Zoom call, Schmidt woke up at 3am and made the three-and-a-half hour drive from Lake Taupo into Auckland for a 7am catch-up.

    The 58-year-old Kiwi doesn’t officially start the role until March 1.
