2. SANZAAR TO INVESTIGATE SBW KNOCK

All Blacks centre Sonny Bill Williams, who just came off a four-match ban for his red card during the second Test against the British & Irish Lions, has made SANZAAR scratch their heads again.

Williams stumbled after making a tackle early in New Zealand's 54-34 victory against the Wallabies in Sydney.

According to reports, SANZAAR had opened an investigation after reviewing footage of the incidents.

3. MAYWEATHER MUST NOT EMBARRASS BOXING

Conor McGregor is not the outright favourite as he prepares for the biggest fight of his life against Floyd Mayweather this weekend.

WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn hopes that Mayweather will "annihilate" the mixed martial arts fighter for the sake of boxing.

He also took a stab in the dark saying that he would love a crack at Mayweather and McGregor... (sigh)

4. BOKS NOT BOTHERED WITH RED JERSEY

It's safe to say that everyone is NOT pleased with the Springboks red attire when they play against Argentina this weekend in their Rugby Championship Test in Salta.

The jersey had been commissioned to mark the 25th anniversary of rugby unity in South Africa.

The decision to play in red has been met with critical reaction from the South African rugby public including former national coach Jake White and former Bok lock Bakkies Botha.

However, Bok flank Jaco Kriel came out to defend the red jersey saying that it will be an honour to wear it in Salta.
