Extra Time for 14 May 2021
Side line violence and abuse continues on New Zealand's sporting fields and it appears there is nothing in place to stop it. A violent confrontation after a premier club rugby game in Wellington is the latest incident emphasising the bad behaviour of some supporters. Extra Time discusses the issue of clubs and teams taking responsibility for the actions of those playing and watching. The New Zealand Rugby Players Association has come up with an alternative plan to the proposed sale of part of New Zealand Rugby commercial arm to a foreign investor, but is the game's governing body interested. And more and more of our top women's sports stars are suffering from mental fatigue and are taking time away from their sport.... are they getting the necessary support. Join Barry Guy on RNZ Sport's Extra Time and hear from a former rugby referee about abuse in sport, World Cup winning captain David Kirk on giving New Zealanders the chance to invest in the game and Black Fern Kendra Cocksedge on why she might not make it through to the next World Cup.
