    Adjust and adapt is the All Blacks' plan over the next three days at the World Cup after the cancellation of their final pool game against Italy due to typhoon Hagibis.

    Coach Steve Hansen says rather than hold a captain's run today, they'll have a more traditional session.



    Meanwhile Italian captain Sergio Parisse has put in a bullocking verbal charge, claiming if it were New Zealand needing four or five points to qualify for the quarter-finals, the World Cup pool B match would've gone ahead.



    All Black Sonny Bill Williams has expressed interest in joining English Super League newcomers the Toronto Wolfpack.

    One of the Breakers' seasoned campaigners is determined to sort out their slow start.

    The Auckland-based club lost the opening game of their US tour to the Memphis Grizzlies, largely due to shooting just 29-percent in the first half.

    The Breakers play the Oklahoma City Thunder this afternoon.

    Russian president Vladimir Putin claims his country have met anti-doping body requirements and believes any "shortcomings" should be left in the past, despite ongoing questions about data tampering.

    Iranian women have been allowed to freely enter a football stadium for the first time since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
