Waka Nathan has passed away at aged 81.

The former All Black was credited with saving Maori rugby when he coached them after his playing career ended.

He suffered with dementia in his later life.

The America's Cup drama continues.

Mark Dunphy wants to provide money for Auckland to host again, but Grant Dalton and Team New Zealand have ceased all conversation with him.

Israel Adesanya is vowing he will never fight in New Zealand again.

It comes after his frustrations over not being able to do training bubbles in lockdown, mainly regarding his teammate Dan Hooker, despite not preparing for a fight himself.
