    The Crusaders say the controversy around coach Rob Penney has brought them closer together

    The Crusaders say the controversy around coach Rob Penney has brought them closer together


    The struggling Super Rugby Pacific champions were forced to apologise to a reporter who Penney used an expletive to describe, following a press conference.



    Former Kiwis coach Sir Graham Lowe believes the Warriors' call to drop star prop Addin Fonua-Blake for disciplinary reasons is a milestone moment.

    Coach Andrew Webster made the decision after Fonua-Blake missed the Warriors' post-game celebrations after last week's upset win over the Panthers.

    Lowe says it was brave and difficult, but it's a fantastic call.



    And the Aussie NBL has confirmed that Perth will host the new "Hoops Fest", a full extra round to kick off the season in September.

    But Basketball Australia CEO Matt Scriven denies it's an additional home game for the Perth Wildcats.
