The America's Cup may just return to New Zealand after all.

After the deadline for hosting was delayed with no solid deal in place, Mark Dunphy has made a formal offer to Team NZ and Grant Dalton to host the next competition in Auckland.

Meanwhile, ahead of the weekend's Rugby Championship, former England coach Sir Clive Woodward has slammed South Africa's style of play.

Woodward, who coached England to the 2003 World Cup, said in a Daily Mail column that rugby will be dead in five years if the world champion's style is copied throughout rugby.

It came after the Springboks' shock loss to Australia, as well as their performances during the British and Irish Lions tour earlier this year.
