SAMOA rugby fans have rallied to the aid of their team after warnings that the Samoa Rugby Union is insolvent and players may go unpaid for Tests in Europe this month.
A combined radio and telethon in Samoa on Wednesday raised $150,000 in a nation which has a population of less than 200,000 and an average annual household income of around $15,000.
The national appeal followed a dire warning from Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi that the Samoa Rugby Union is unable to meet its debts or pay player wages.
Samoa’s Tests against Scotland tomorrow and England and Romania over the following two weeks will go ahead as scheduled.
The Samoa players and coach Fuimaono Timitaea Tafua are likely to be fully paid following the fundraising drive. The England Rugby Union has also indicated it will make a goodwill payment of almost $100,000 to Samoa to help meet players’ match fees.
England’s Rugby Football Union offered a similar “goodwill” amount to Fiji ahead of a Test at Twickenham last year from which it received an estimated $13.1 million. Rugby’s revenue-sharing system, which allows major nations such as England to retain all revenues from home matches, has been strongly criticised by Samoa and other Pacific Island nations.
Because those nations rarely play at home and generate little income when they do — a result of small stadiums and necessarily low ticket prices, lack of broadcasting rights and consequent sponsorship — there is a significant wealth gap between rugby’s richest and poorest national unions.
Samoa has been known for its ability to compete on the field with top-tier nations: it qualified for every Rugby World Cup bar the first in 1987, beating Wales in pool play in 1991. But it has been eliminated in the pool stages of every Cup since 2003 and its individual Test results in recent years have been poor.
Almost all of its top players are based in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Britain or Europe and their availability for Test matches is often constrained by the demands of their clubs. At the same time many young Samoan players make themselves available to represent the All Blacks, England or other teams because the financial rewards are much greater.
Heavyweight hype packs a new punch
ANTHONY Joshua woke up on Wednesday to find himself more of a wanted man than ever in boxing’s entertaining new era of old-fashioned heavyweight hoopla and intrigue.
The Briton is at the heart of a long-overdue heavyweight revival, the money-spinning focus for three other unbeaten champions who, like him, believe they can unify the division and become undisputed owner of the sport’s most prestigious title.
Joshua, who holds the WBA and IBF versions of the crown, was called out by both America’s WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and New Zealand’s Joseph Parker, the WBO holder, on Wednesday as the hype really began to take hold.
The pair both see a fight with Britain’s 2012 Olympic champion as their passport to global superstardom while in the background another Briton, Tyson Fury, the unbeaten former threebelt holder, still keeps trumpeting his claims too.
Between them the quartet have had more than 100 professional fights and not lost one. So something has to give once, as seems inevitable in 2018, boxing sees the first punches thrown in a bid to find the first undisputed champ since the WBO was founded in 1988.
It is all a far cry from the fairly stagnant decade during which Wladimir Klitschko ruled the division with mechanical efficiency. Once beaten by Fury and Joshua, though, the Ukrainian’s era was consigned to history.
The chiselled Joshua’s perfect 20-fight, 20-knock-out record, allied to a personality that has turned him into the poster boy of the division, has given him a profile that puts his camp in the driving seat for big fight negotiations.
Yet his potential challengers, encouraged by how Joshua made hard work in disposing of tough late replacement Carlos Takam in his last defence, are now ramping up the noise as they jostle for position to face the 28-year-old.
POTENTIAL FIGHTS Wilder, whose one-round demolition of Bermane Stiverne in New York on Saturday took his blemish-free record to 38 knock-outs in 39 wins, delivered a taunting message on social media, declaring he would beat Joshua in his British “safe haven”.
“You know I’m coming for you... 2018 is what you should be worried about. The people want it. Do you want it? Or do you have some hidden agendas? Are you hiding anything? We’re on it so you either fight or shut up,” boomed the 32-year-old in classic trash-talking fashion.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn had proposed Wilder should face another Briton, Dillian Whyte, a former Joshua victim, before any potential match, leaving the American to growl: “A king doesn’t chase the peasants, a king takes on kings.”
On Wednesday, though, Hearn told Sky Sports that negotiations with Wilder’s representatives over a potential fight with the American would now begin next week. – Reuters
Chung takes new rules in his stride
SOUTH Korea’s Chung Hyeon maintained his 100 percent record at the Next Gen ATP Finals with a crushing victory over Russian Andrey Rublev on Wednesday to surge ahead in Group A.
Just as he did on Tuesday, the 21-year-old showed a liking for the various new innovations being tested out in Milan as he proved too solid for Rublev – the highest ranked player in the ATP’S new showcase event for the best players aged 21 and under.
World number 54 Chung won 4-0 4-1 4-3(1) to follow up his defeat of Canadian Denis Shapovalov – sealing a semi-final place with one round-robin match to spare.
Chung finished off Rublev in just over an hour, slightly longer than it took Karen Khachanov to beat American Jared Donaldson 4-1 4-3(2) 4-2 in Group B.
Donaldson is still without a set after two matches.
The 18-year-old Shapovalov notched his first win when he beat Italian wildcard Gianluigi Quinzi 4-1 4-1 3-4(5) 4-3(5).
Shapovalov, ranked 51st, raced through the opening two sets against his fellow former junior Wimbledon champion before the match burst into life when the Italian found another gear.
Despite double-faulting on match point, however, Shapovalov claimed victory and will need to beat Rublev to reach the semis.
The eight-man tournament, showcasing the players who are tipped to be the future of men’s tennis, is using radical new rules aimed at increasing the popularity of the sport. – Reuters
