    A dominant day for Peter Burling and Blair Tuke at the 49er Sailing World Championships in Melbourne

    A dominant day for Peter Burling and Blair Tuke at the 49er Sailing World Championships in Melbourne


    They've had two wins and a third to lead the regatta with four wins from their first six races.

    Isaac McHardie and William McKenzie are 11th overall while Logan Dunning Beck and Oscar Gunn are 12th.

    Breakers owner Matt Walsh wants his full roster back.

    But he's unsure it'll happen.

    The Australian basketball league club have turned around their form in the second half the season, going from a 2-8 record to being a win away from the playoffs.

    That's largely been led by the likes of Scotty Hopson and Finn Delany, both who are garnering international attention.

    All Blacks prop Ofa Tuungafasi will enjoy a first run-on appearance of 2020 for the Blues in Friday's Super Rugby derby against the Crusaders at Eden Park.

    Tuungafasi has come off the bench in both of his side's matches to date.

    He starts at tighthead prop in place of Sione Mafileo.
