    The Panthers have won 18-12 in Gosford after the Warriors fought back from 16-nil down just before the break.

    Warriors coach Todd Payten says they had their chances but weren't clinical enough.

    The match has been marred by alleged racial abuse directed by a group of Warriors fans at Panthers wing Brent Naden .

    The fans were ejected from the ground before half-time and the NRL has launched an investigation.

    Meanwhile the Dragons have upset Paramatta 14-12.

    The Blues are taking a massive financial hit with Sunday's game against the Crusaders cancelled.

    The Eden Park match was a sell-out, with more than 40 thousand due to pack in.

    Chief executive Andrew Hore says it's not just them affected though with stadium workers and bar staff around the suburb missing out too.

    A one over par 71 has Lydia Ko in a tie for 16th, five shots off the pace during the second round of the LPGA Tour's Scottish Open in Troon.

    Meanwhile Ryan Fox has carded an even par 71 in the second round of the European Tour's Celtic Classic in Wales to be two under for the tournament, nine shots off the pace.

    Rain and bad light has ruined day two of the second cricket test between England and Pakistan in Southampton.

    The tourists have reached 223 for 9 with just 40.2 overs possible during the day.

    Lewis Hamilton has topped the practice times ahead of the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix in Barcelona.
