New Zealand World Cup wing player Caleb Clarke is training with the NRL’s Rabbitohs in order to improve his skills for Super Rugby, and has expressed a desire to switch codes in the future. The NRL has made it easier for players to make the transition from union to league with salary cap relief after Australia lost star winger Mark Nawaqanitawase to the Roosters for 2025.
Caleb Clarke finds league to be quicker and is confident it will help him on the rugby field, especially with the aerial game. He has expressed his dream of playing league in the future, describing it as a life goal. However, his primary focus remains on Super Rugby. Clarke is still young and hopeful that his legs can carry him through the transition.
TJ Perenara, a veteran of 80 tests who suffered a career-threatening injury, is determined to make a return to the Test team in 2024. He has been putting in extra training sessions to aid his recovery and is eager to get back to playing. While he faces competition from Cam Roigard, he sees this as an opportunity for both of them to become the best two nines in the country and work together effectively.
Twickenham Stadium and the Stadium of Light have been selected as the venues for the 2025 Women’s Rugby World Cup. Twickenham set a world record for attendance during a women’s international, and organisers hope to break that record at the World Cup finale.
