Hosea Gear to play Super Rugby for the Chiefs Sunday 10 August 2014| Former All Black winger Hosea Gear has agreed to return to New Zealand and play for the Chiefs in the 2015 Super Rugby season. The Super Rugby centurion winger played for the Highlanders and Hurricanes and Provincial Rugby for Poverty Bay, North Harbour and Wellington. The 30 year old winger is currently playing at the Honda Club in Japan and will return to New Zealand early in February 2015 at the conclusion of his club season. The outstanding winger who will join forces with Sonny Bill Williams is expected to provide impact both on and off the field for the Chiefs. Chiefs coach Dave Rennie said, "Hosea ticks all the boxes. He's a good man, very professional and experienced. He's also a *** of a player, powerful, quick and a quality finisher. We are really looking forward to working with Hosea next season." Gear said that he was looking forward to returning home to New Zealand and learning first hand about the Chiefs culture. "I'd like ...

Bird, Smith issues cloud Origin chances James MacSmith 19:20 AEST Sun May 11 2014 Greg Bird and Cameron Smith could be ruled out of the State of Origin opener following incidents from round nine of the NRL. NSW enforcer Greg Bird is squarely in the sights of the NRL's crackdown on lifting tackles after being placed on report by referee Ben Cummins for a 60th minute effort on South Sydney's Bryson Goodwin in the Rabbitohs' 40-18 win over the Titans on Saturday. An incident involving Queensland captain Smith and Manly hooker Matt Ballin wasn't noted by the referees but is sure to draw the interest of the NRL's match review committee Midway through the first half of Melbourne's 22-19 win over Manly, Storm skipper Smith was caught in a tangle at the play the ball with Ballin on the Sea Eagles goal line. Manly were penalised for slowing the play, but replays appeared to show Smith striking Ballin and the Sea Eagles' hooker came out of the incident with a head wound that required assistance.

Interesting Reading, what do you think? its a aussie article but I think it would surge interest in a deflating super competition... A draft should be introduced with the new Super Rugby competition from 2016, Brendan Cannon writes SANZAR needs to introduce a player draft if they are to reinvigorate Super Rugby under their expansion plan. I fear the tournament will become stale and frail if organisers do not inject new excitement and relax limitations on players. Putting the top 30 players into a draft pool – the best two from each club as nominated by rival teams – and allowing any franchise to bid for them at the start of the expanded tournament would bring huge buzz and excitement to Super Rugby. It would also allow players to experience life at an overseas club without being lost to Europe or Japan where they’re never seen again by the local audience. Teams will inevitably complain that they would lose their main drawcard; for instance NSW with Israel Folau. But under the draft system, there wou ...

England Sevens beginning to relish life under Amor May 1, 2014 Jamie No comments sevens The appointment of a new head coach is typically a time of huge upheaval for any sports team – training regimes are changed, focusses shift and coaches are replaced. The first season can often be a time of transition, and that is where the England Sevens squad have found themselves this year after new coach Simon Amor was appointed just a month before the start of this World Series back in September. Dan Norton has been around the England Sevens set-up for five years now, making his debut in 2009. A stalwart of the national team, he admits it was tough at first. “It was a little bit difficult at the start, coming back from pre-season and hearing the news [that Amor had replaced former coach Ben Ryan], and taking a few weeks for everything to fall into place,” says Norton, who holds the English record for number of tries scored in one season. “Before Christmas it was like rolling with what we already had – try ...

Sonny Bill Williams of New Zealand walks past the trophy after the Rugby League World Cup final between New Zealan
A frustrated Sonny Bill Williams will accept a three-match ban for a shoulder charge in last Thursday night's season opener, denying Sydney Roosters and the NRL of one of the game's biggest drawcards for the grand final replay against Manly. Roosters officials were stunned when Williams was charged with a grade-two shoulder charge over a tackle on George Burgess in the last minute of the premier's 28-8 loss to South Sydney but Fairfax Media has been told they have reluctantly decided against fighting the charge. It is understood the Roosters had considered seeking to have the charge downgraded to a grade-one offence, which still would have sidelined Williams for next Saturday's match against Parramatta and the following weekend's trip to Brisbane. Advertisement Sonny Bill Williams' offending tackle on George Burgess. Photo: Screen grab While the charge was laid against Williams because there was no separation between his arm and body when he made contact with Burgess's head, the involvement of team-mate S ...
Simply meeting his new Brisbane teammates made Ben Barba nervous. But the Broncos are backing a more settled Barba to prosper amid an anticipated hot reception from former Bulldogs colleagues and their passionate fans in the NRL clash at ANZ Stadium on Friday night. A glimpse of what Barba can expect following his off-season switch was provided 12 months ago when Canterbury vented their spleen at another former golden boy, Sonny Bill Williams. The Broncos aren't predicting fullback Barba will match Williams' two-try match-winning performance that day but they're quietly confident the ex-Dally M Medallist can help them crash Canterbury's opening round party. "Tomorrow night no doubt he will get a pretty hostile reception. Once he gets through that he will be fine," Griffin said. "But whether we are playing the Bulldogs or not, it is not an issue. "It probably makes for good theatre but we are trying to win a footy game." Griffin revealed Barba appeared nothing like the confident performer who led the Bulld ...
As we count down to season 2014, NRL.com identifies 30 players who will be crucial to their team's fortunes this year. From new faces to rising stars to proven performers who will need to lift this season, these are our 'MVPs' for 2014. What else is there to say about Sonny Bill Williams? In 2013 he came, he saw and he conquered – at NRL level, if not the World Cup – as the biggest of the Sydney Roosters' three big signings. The former Bulldogs-prodigy-turned-All Black lived up to all expectations in his return to the NRL, helping to transform the Roosters from bottom-eight strugglers into major and minor premiers. He couldn't repeat the trick with the Kiwis at the year-ending World Cup, falling to a mighty Kangaroos side in the final, but Sonny's return season in the NRL was undoubtedly a success. To top it all off, Williams was named the best player on the planet in 2013 by taking out the RLIF's International Player of the Year award. Have you picked your Holden NRL Fantasy team yet?

Things Learned from Auckland 9`s 1. Nines does not need a plethora of stars Fears that a low volume of superstars would hold back the tournament proved unfounded, with the squads really turning it on via a combination of emerging talent, some journeymen and a smattering of marquee players. Sure there was no Sonny Bill Williams, Johnathan Thurston, Sam (or any) Burgess or Jamie Lyon. But for every Shaun Johnson, James Tamou or Josh Dugan who got the crowd on their feet whenever they got near the Steeden, a Sam Tagataese, Fuifui Moimoi or Willie Mason generated a heap of excitement, too. Chuck in the enthusiasm and precocious skills of youngsters like Kyle Feldt, Semi Radradra, Valentine Holmes, Jake Mamo, Kodi Nikorima and Solomone Kata and it was a recipe for success. 2. Business as usual when it comes to early injuries It's same old, same old for some teams who will need to make contingency plans in key positions for the opening rounds of the NRL season following some bad luck with injuries at the Nines. ...

Cowboys wrecking-ball Jason Taumalolo has some bad news for NRL opposition currently tightening their defences: he plans to run over the top of so many of you that by the end of the 2014 season it will be as synonymous as Thurston's 'show-and-go' or Sonny Bill's offload. He doesn't have a name for it yet but with a renewed focus under new coach Paul Green, Taumalolo is determined to make every hit-up and tackle count for plenty this season. Shortly after making his NRL debut in 2010 at 17 years, two months and 21 days, Taumalolo was referred to as the next Sonny Bill Williams. But rather than working on an offload through the line, the 20-year-old is developing a trademark of his own that is a little more direct. "That's a huge compliment, being compared to one of the game's most elite players," Taumalolo told NRL.com. "Obviously I want to be playing at the same level as Sonny Bill but I definitely don't want to be the 'next Sonny Bill'. I want to play my own game and hopefully make a trademark as being o ...
Warrington Wolves complete NRL training week with trip to champion side Sydney Roosters. WARRINGTON Wolves completed a busy week of training alongside NRL clubs with a trip to reigning champions the Sydney Roosters on Saturday. Joing Trent Robinson's Roosters for the final session of their official first week of 2014 pre-Season training, Wolves completed a workout alongside Rugby League superstars Sonny Bill Williams and Anthony Minichiello among others. In the first of three sessions Wolves will undertake with Sydney Roosters, the players took part in a couple of mixed 9s games before some goal-line defence in a 13 v 13 format.
A humble Johnathan Thurston says it'll take him a few days to accept his status among Rugby League's greats after winning the coveted Golden Boot for a second time. The Australian, Queensland and North Queensland five-eighth is only the third player to take out the Rugby League World magazine award twice, alongside Andrew Johns and Darren Lockyer. Thurston, man of the match in the Kangaroos' World Cup final win over New Zealand at Old Trafford in November, edged out England forward Sam Burgess to follow up his 2011 success. Dual-code New Zealand international Sonny Bill Williams came third in the voting - which is conducted by a panel of journalists - with Australian captain Cameron Smith fourth and Huddersfield's Scotland captain Danny Brough fifth. "It's obviously a huge honour to receive it; there's a lot of great players running around in the game today," Thurston told reporters at Cowboys HQ on Friday. "To have my name alongside Joey and Locky to win it twice, it's pretty special. "It probably won't ...

WARNING WARNING WARNING. Here is the biggest lie of all, in 2012 Roosters where done for breaching the salary cap by $14,348 as you will read this in story 1, Now in Story 2 they will tell you that in 2012 Roosters where under the Salary cap by $300,000 that's how they where able to Lure SBW, JENNINGS, MALONEY, O'DONNELL. BUSTED! 1. Seven clubs have been fined by the NRL for salary cap breaches, with Cronulla and Canberra handed the largest sanctions. The Sharks have been fined $150,000, while the Raiders face a $144,393 penalty following the NRL's final salary cap audit of the 2012 season. Newcastle ($88,749), Manly ($85,000), Gold Coast ($16,217), Sydney Roosters ($14,348 2. The Roosters, traditionally one of the NRL's biggest spenders, went through 2012 with a playing squad $300,000 below the salary cap.

Sonny Bill Williams now looks set to skip the Auckland Nines, only hours after speculation to the contrary. The fledgling tournament appeared to have been granted a huge boost by securing Williams' services, but his manager has now said the code-hopper will not join his Sydney Roosters teammates next month at Eden Park. Khoder Nasser told TVNZ his client would skip the two-day tournament in favour of preparing for the Roosters' clash with Super League champions Wigan at Allianz Stadium the weekend after the event. The news means Williams will not play alongside league great Brad Fittler, who last week announced he was coming out of retirement to compete in the inaugural edition of the Nines.
Sonny Bill Williams manager Khoder Nasser has confirmed SBW won't have any part in the Auckland Nines comp
Fun fact Friday! Did you know that Rugby Union and Rugby League player Sonny Bill Williams and actress Lucy Lawless both grew up in Mount Albert? One of New Zealand's greatest athletes, Sir Peter Snell (triple Olympic gold medalist, world mile record holder and NZ's athlete of the 20th century) was educated in and was a long-time resident of Mt Albert as was Bryan Williams, an All Black great and president of the NZRFU.
Sydney Roosters great Brad Fittler says he would love to line up alongside Sonny Bill Williams at the Auckland Nines but concedes it's unlikely. Fittler has been lured out of a 10-year retirement to join the tricolours for the inaugural two-day NRL pre-season tournament next month and believes Williams would be a formidable Nines player. The Roosters haven't finalised their squad for the Nines but Fittler said he spoke with coach Trent Robinson on Wednesday who suggested the NRL premiers would rest Williams from the Nines with the World Club Challenge scheduled for the week after. "I spoke to the coach today and they have the World Club Challenge game the week after and they are still indecisive as to whether certain players will play the Nines or the World Club Challenge," Fittler told 2SM's Talkin' Sport. "There hasn't been a final conclusion but there is a big chance Sonny won't be playing which is a shame. "I have played against Sonny and I reckon it would be fun to play with him." When told Williams' ...

Other key mentions: Scott Dixon, Lauren Boyle, Andrew Nicholson, Sonny Bill Williams for switching codes and winning a premiership...

Sonny Bill Williams' stunning return to Rugby League was a bright light for Rugby League in 2013, in a season when the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority supplements scandal constantly lurked in the shadows - two themes that are set to continue well into next year. At the beginning of the season when Williams joined the Sydney Roosters after almost five seasons out of the game, there were plenty of pundits happy to say they didn't want him back and just as many lining up to say he couldn't cut it any more. Those doubters were emphatically silenced as Williams got better and better as the season wore on, spearheading the Roosters to the NRL premiership and New Zealand to the World Cup final. Now the question is ... what more can he do in 2014, in what will likely be his final season in the NRL? SBW was on the couch at home watching on though as Queensland secured an unprecedented eighth successive State of Origin series win. Things went well for NSW early as they went 1-0 up in Sydney but in a recurri ...

The guys over at Undisputed Sports have compiled a list of the most improved players in 2013. Do you agree or disagree with the list? To be included in this list, the player must have already played 20 first grade games before this season. Jake Friend Under the tutelage of new Rooster coach Trent Robinson, Jake Friend has taken his game to a whole new level. His running out of dummy half is up there with the best and he has developed a very effective short kicking game. Friend has been a crucial part of the Roosters season and is being hailed as the next Australian and Queensland hooker when Cameron Smith retires. While his attacking game hits new heights he is maintaining a high work rate in defence with an average of 37 tackles a game. Trent Robinson has worked wonders on Friend who still manages to shine in a team containing stars such as James Maloney and Sonny Bill Williams. Dean Whare The young former Sea Eagle was bought by Penrith to play fullback and started off the season in that no1 jersey. Des ...

Sydney Roosters skipper Anthony Minichiello says a clean six-week break from football will ensure the tricolours' World Cup-weary stars will be primed to defend their NRL title when season 2014 kicks off. The premiers fielded 16 players at the World Cup in Britain, more than any other club, with four - Sonny Bill Williams, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Frank Paul Nu'uausala - all named in the Kiwis' team for Sunday morning's (AEDT) final against Australia. With the Roosters to face Wigan in the World Club Challenge on February 22 at Allianz Stadium and the NRL Nines to be staged in Auckland the week before, there are fears the Roosters' campaign for back-to-back titles could hit a snag due to player burnout. But Minichiello, who has returned from playing for Italy in the international showpiece, is confident fatigue won't be a problem. "It's important to get away from football and freshen up, not just physically but mentally as well," Minichiello told AAP. "And that's what we will look ...
