Tuesday night leads with Australia’s newly formed football association pushing for a second division.

Football: Australia’s second-tier football clubs will continue their push for a national second division, but are reportedly willing to work with Football Federation Australia.

The newly formed Australian Association of Football Clubs met for the first time on Monday.

The association’s creation of a national second division is highest on the agenda, but delegates agreed that the best way forward is to work with the current system rather than breaking away from the FFA and the A-League.

Cricket: Cricket Australia has proposed massive pay increases, particularly for women, but breaks with the 20-year model of a fixed percentage of revenue from the game going to players.

The $419 million offer is a 35 percent increase on the current five-year pay deal which expires in July.

Rugby League: 2017 Rugby League World Cup organisers have signed wine brand Wolf Blass as an official sponsor.

Wolf Blass will receive pourage rights at all RLWC2017 matches played in Australia and New Zealand and will be the brand exclusively used in hospitality suites and functions at the tournament.

More Rugby League: Newcastle Knights have agreed a one-year sponsorship agreement with wagering firm Ladbrokes. The bookmaker’s branding will be visible on the lower back position on the club’s jersey for the remainder of the 2017 season, as well as the goalpost and corner-post pads at the club’s home games.
