    Peta Hiku will have the daunting job of filling Roger Tuivasa-Sheck's boots for the Warriors NRL match against Brisbane.

    Tuivasa-Sheck has been suspended for a game following a shoulder charge during the loss to the Storm.

    Interim coach Todd Payten says Hiku's no stranger to the role.

    A cash injection from FIFA could help ensure New Zealand stadiums are ready to host Womens World Cup games in 2023.

    FIFA's bid evaluation for the 2023 tournament finds Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch's stadiums all need improvements to floodlights and other facilities.
