Rugby Union Sonny Bill Williams wants New Zealand Rugby to include someone with Pacific Island or Maori blood in the next All Blacks coaching unit. Midfielder Williams, who is expected to announce his retirement from the All Blacks after the Rugby World Cup bronze final against Wales in Tokyo on Friday night, is of Samoan heritage. When asked to explain what qualities attack coach Ian Foster would bring to the All Blacks if he succeeds in replacing outgoing coach Steve Hansen after the tournament Williams replied that it was his understanding a number of applicants would apply for the position. Instead of addressing the question about Foster, who has assisted Hansen for eight seasons, Williams deviated to the issue of how the All Blacks coaches can communicate and assist players of Maori or Pacific Island heritage. “There are a lot of coaches leaving at the end of the year, and one thing that I would probably put to the NZRU, it would be good to see a Pacific Islander or Maori in the coaching system that would have a bit of influence,” Williams said. “Because of the way the game is going, and it is today. There are a lot of island boys, a lot of Maori boys who play for the All Blacks. “I am just thinking how we can get a lot more out of those boys. I know that there is a bit of space there for that growth.” A large number of All Blacks coaching staff and management crew are of European descent. Steve Hansen, Mike Cron, Scott McLeod and Foster are Pakeha. A leading member of the management team, Gilbert Enoka, is of Rarotongan descent and media manager Joe Locke is also of Maori descent. The exit of Hansen, who has been head coach for eight years and previously assisted Sir Graham Henry – another Pakeha – has already created speculation about who should replace him when NZ Rugby starts searching for his replacement after the tournament in Japan. – stuff.co.nz

As part of their 10-match unbeaten run to end the season, the Gunners drew 0-0 at Sunderland.The game also marked the second of a six-match unbeaten run for Sam Allardyce’s side, as ‘Big Sam’ fashioned another Great Escape on Wearside. However, it’s all change for the Black Cats this season, and you wouldn’t predict that anywhere near 15.15% of Spiffx punters will be backing the home win this time around.David Moyes’ Sunderland will equal the worst points return after 10 matches in Premier League history if they lose at home to Arsenal on Saturday. Meanwhile, Arsenal are unbeaten in eight matches, and will be fired up after a disappointing display against Middlesbrough at the Emirates last time out.For the first time in his managerial career, Pep Guardiola has now gone six matches without a win. When you combine that with EFL Cup elimination against Manchester United and the prospect of facing Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday, the Spaniard is under a bit of pressure.On the opening day of last season, City made the trip to Hawthorns off the back of a disappointing 2014/15 campaign, and brushed aside the Baggies with a dominant display. However, on Saturday they will be without the driving force from that game, as Yaya Toure continues to be exiled for comments made by his agent Dimitri Seluk. Toure recorded a goal and a 96% pass completion, on the day that Raheem Sterling made his City debut.This time, home manager Tony Pulis will again set up to contain the superior City side, and so a repeat of West Brom’s 31% possession would come as no surprise. The Baggies may have managed at least a single goal in their last five matches, but a similarly high percentage of Spiffx punters (74.63) will be backing the table toppers to get back to winning ways. For those wanting a reason to back the Baggies – record signing Nacer Chadli has three goals and two assists in just two matches at the Hawthorns.This is the info for this week:Sunderland v Arsenal – 24th April 2016Result: 0-0Sunderland – 15.15%Draw – 24.24%Arsenal – 60.61%West Brom v Man City – 10th August 2015Result: 0-3West Brom – 19.40%Draw – 5.97%Man City – 74.63%
Aaron Ramsey has reportedly signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus.The Arsenal midfielder becomes a free agent in June after the Gunners withdrew their offer of an extension last year.According to reports from Sport Media Set, the Welsh star is preparing to head to Italy after penning a four-year deal with the Serie A giants.There are also claims that Ramsey will pocket £145,000-a-week at Juventus.A host of Europe’s biggest clubs have been linked with a move for the popular ace.However, it now looks certain that Ramsey will be lining-up alongside Cristiano Ronaldo for the Old Lady next season.Ramsey moved to The Emirates from boyhood club Cardiff City in 2008 as Arsene Wenger beat old foes Manchester United to the then-teenager’s signature.He has made over 300 appearances for the North London side and achieved cult status with their supporters with his FA Cup-winning strike against Hull City at Wembley in 2014.Ramsey helped Arsenal to retain the trophy the following year and then scored the decisive goal to defeat Chelsea in the 2017 final.Arsenal‘s Premier League rivals Chelsea were believed to be plotting a swoop along with AC Milan and Real Madrid.Related
