    The All Blacks captain is poised to mix it with the best of the Heartland this weekend

    The All Blacks captain is poised to mix it with the best of the Heartland this weekend

    Sam Cane - out of rugby since March with pectoral and shoulder surgery - is fit to return this week ahead of joining the All Blacks for the northern tour.

    However, complicating matters is Cane's province Bay of Plenty were due to play Counties this week in the NPC - a match now postponed due to Covid.

    So, coach Ian Foster says they're looking to find a willing Heartland Championship union to take him on.

    Waikato's move into alert level three has seen Hamilton cough up the Silver Ferns netball series against the Aotearoa Men starting this Sunday.

    The series has been shifted from Claudelands Arena to TSB Arena in Wellington, with the matches to be played on three consecutive nights.

    Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers have outlasted the New England Patriots 19-17 in the quarterback's first ever NFL matchup with his former franchise.

    Brady steered his offence downfield to help set-up a successful field goal with a little under two minutes remaining, proving the decisive score for victory.
