    The Cagliari event is under threat due to the coronavirus outbreak, which has swept across Italy.

    The Adelaide Thunderbirds have been fined $105,000, $95,000 of which is suspended, after breaching the salary cap during the last Australian domestic netball season where they finished second-to-last.

    They held the Proteas to 92 for five, chasing 98 in 13 overs.



    The Highlanders have all their All Blacks back for their Super Rugby match against the Bulls in Pretoria on Sunday morning.

    Liam Coltman moves from the bench to start at hooker, with Shannon Frizell back from a rest to start at blindside flanker.

    Aaron Smith retains the halfback role, and will start as captain due to the injured absence of James Lentjes.



    A bleak outlook looms for Rugby Australia.

    Sydney's Daily Telegraph claims that three weeks after dropping their broadcast package line into the waters of the open market, the governing body hasn't had a single nibble.

    The lack of formal interest has forced them to extend their offer period another week.

    A coronavirus scare for New Zealand's Olympic boxing hopefuls.

    Featherweight Amy Andrew was in quarantine after showing 'flu symptoms at their training camp in Italy.

    She since tested negative for the illness and has rejoined the team in Jordan at the Games' qualifiers.
