    France have moved to top of the Six Nations rugby standings with a bonus point in a 35-22 victory over Italy in Paris


    The hosts scored five tries to three to lead the table on nine points, ahead of Ireland on points difference.



    The Blues have arrived home knowing they may have unearthed a new game-breaker to unleash against the Crusaders.

    Wing Mark Telea scored a hat-trick in the win over the Waratahs in Newcastle.



    A final round eight-under-par 64 - including two eagles and four birdies - has earned Ryan Fox second at the European golf tour's Victoria Open in Geelong.

    He's finished at 17-under for the tournament, two behind Australian winner Min Woo Lee.



    The Breakers are into the Australian basketball league top four... for now.

    The Brisbane Bullets have dropped out after a 85-72 loss to Perth.

    The New Zealand franchise now has 14 wins and 13 losses with a game to play - they lead on points differential.



    Lockie Ferguson's still a while away from returning for the New Zealand cricket team.

    The pace bowler's been absent since the test series opener against Australia in Perth, after suffering a calf strain.

    He made his return to domestic cricket with Auckland in the Ford Trophy yesterday, taking none for 50 in the loss to Otago.

    Auckland's finished atop the table and host the final next Sunday at Eden Park outer oval against either Canterbury or Otago.



    Expect changes to the White Ferns for the remainder of the Twenty20 cricket series against the Proteas.

    New Zealand suffered a five-wicket loss in the third match at the Basin Reserve after South Africa chased 154.

    Opener Rachel Priest says they'll look to adjust in preparation for the World T20 start in 12 days.

    The fourth match of the five-game series starts at 2pm, again at the Basin Reserve.



    Pakistan pace bowler Naseem Shah has became the youngest player to claim a test hat-trick, against Bangladesh in Rawalpindi.

    Naseem turns 17 next week.

    Bangladesh have finished the third day at 126 for six in their second innings, still needing 86 runs to avoid an innings defeat.



    Bangladesh has claimed the under-19 cricket World Cup in South Africa, winning the final by three wickets over India on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method.



    A story for cricket fans with a pathological dislike for bowlers.

    Napier Tech Old Boys are on their way to pursue a hat-trick of national club championship this April for Central Districts after posting 301 for two in a Twenty20 against Whanganui's Marist... to save you the maths that's 15.05 runs per over.

    They won by 174 runs.



    Storm Ciara has largely wiped out the Sunday sporting schedule across the UK and northern Europe.

    Super League matches, including Israel Folau's debut for Catalans Dragons, were postponed along with Manchester City's English Premier League football match against West Ham.
