Fri, 22 Jun 2007 6:42p.m.

South Africa has lost its two first-choice loosies for the weekend’s Tri-Nations clash against the All Blacks. Injuries have forced Juan Smith and Pierre Spies out of the Durban test, and there is doubt over the fitness of key play-maker Jaque Fourie.

Rugby: All Blacks tipped as favourites against SA
Sat, 23 Jun 2007 6:44p.m.
The All Blacks will finally get to gauge their progresses tonight in their opening tri-nations test against South Africa in Durban. After big wins over an under-strength French side and Canada the All Blacks are looking forward to finally facing up to a real test. Betting agencies seem certain the All Blacks can shake their jet lag and win in Durban.
They are $1.45 favourites to beat the Springboks in tonight's Tri Nations clash of the giants. The Springboks have easily adjusted to some late tinkering in the side after being struck by injury.

Toeava centre of Mauger's attention
Jun 23, 2007

Isaia Toeava may have his doubters in the New Zealand rugby public, but don't count Aaron Mauger in that number.
Mauger and Toeava line up for just their second test of the season as a second five-centre pairing on Sunday morning against the Springboks in Durban.
Mauger says Toeava has helped him as much as he's helped "Ice junior", and he knows the young man will show his talents against the Springboks.
Mauger says he's sure Toeava will be sorted and ready for the game and he's got much more confidence and self belief this year.
Meanwhile hooker Anton Oliver's just taking it one game at a time in this the all important world cup year.
Oliver says while it's no good as a team to deny that a world cup lies ahead, he's just focussing on the Boks.
He says if you start thinking too far ahead you get yourself in trouble.

Yachting: Huge crowds predicted for America’s Cup race one
Fri, 22 Jun 2007 6:11p.m.

Race day of the 32nd America’s Cup is drawing close and both teams are making their last-minute preparations. It has been quiet in Valencia but the event organisers are anticipating a massive crowd for race one, which also coincides with a Spanish festival.


With all the respect I have for Chill's country, I am totally against this new "rule".
I think it's quite sad for rugby and for South Africa in general. I really don't think it will weaken the teams (national or Province). I do hate quotas in general, but this one is (excuse me) totally stupid!

Tell us your thoughts about it in the comments below (thank you)
