    - article from

    Football Federation Australia, the 11 clubs and the PFA have reached agreement on a resumption which now just needs sign-off from broadcaster Fox Sports

    New Zealand's top ranked tennis player Michael Venus is defending his decision not to play in the just launched New Zealand Premier League.

    The Parramatta Eels sit atop the NRL Premiership after demolishing the Brisbane Broncos 34-6 in the competition's first game in two and a half months.
