Qatar has made a surprise bid to host the finals of the new Rugby Nations Championship from 2026.

The 12 team competition will pit the best Northern Hemisphere sides against the top Southern Hemisphere sides.

The bid is reportedly around 800 million pounds over eight years.

And NZR has just announced  that two governance reform proposals - one designed by the NZR board, the other by the provincial unions - will be voted on at a Special General Meeting at the end of the month.

And in Mini-Golf news, Kiwi Matt Ansley finished second in the world adventure golf tour final in Czechia.
