1. NEYMAR IS LEAVING SPAIN!

Neymar has decided to leave Barcelona.

The Spanish football club confirmed that the Brazilian striker officially requested to leave at a meeting held at the club's offices.

However, a record sum of money needs to be forked out of someone's (cough, Paris Saint-Germain) pocket to pay Neymar's buyout clause.

2. CRUSADERS TO SUFFER AT ELLIS PARK

According to New Zealand Rugby's medical chief Ian Murphy, the Crusaders could suffer from jet lag in Saturday's Super Rugby final against the Lions at Ellis Park.

Murphy suggested that the team will play at "less than 100 percent" because of travelling between time zones - Christchurch is 10 hours ahead of SA time.

3. NEW RUGBY LAWS IN SA

Domestic rugby in South Africa has recently-announced law amendments that will go on trial, following special dispensation from World Rugby.

These SIX amendments, which focus heavily on the refereeing of scrums and the tackle/ruck area, will be trialled in the Currie Cup (Premier and First Divisions), SA Rugby Under-21, -20 and -19 championships as well as PRO14.

4. OLD TRAFFORD TO BE DOMINGO'S SWAN SONG?

Domingo's contract with Cricket South Africa expires after the England series.
