In a Rock Sport update: Morning Rumble Sports Reader Ali Williams has announced he is cutting his contract with The Rock short by eight days in order to play for his new French rugby team, Toulon, this weekend.
As a penalty, Ali has generously (read: reluctantly) agreed to fork out some cash to send two of you on a trip to France to see the big lock play for his new squad.
To get in the draw to win, all you have to do is read the sports news better than he can. Which is not exactly tough.
You can either make something up and read off the cuff for 20 seconds, or read the bulletin we've prepared below:
To rugby, and long suffering Hurricanes fan Bryce Casey has been made caretaker coach of the struggling franchise.
The 34 year old will be in charge of The 'Canes for next year’s Super 15, and promises that "next year will be the year, bro".
The main problem for Casey may be flying in and out of the country due to past issues at airports. Hurricanes management are describing this as "a work in progress".
And to Netball… News is coming through that Leah Panapa will become the new captain of The Silver Ferns.
Panapa hasn’t played netball since the 1987 Hawkes Bay Champs, and when questioned on her preparation for the task at hand, claimed that the media were racist and that this was just “another attempt to bring down her people”.
Panapa will be welcomed to the team with a rare, all nude haka from the national men’s netball team.
Equestrian now, and Roger Farrelly has been crowned as the winner of TV3 show Equestrian Idol.
The 5 foot 4 inch, former radio announcer said last night that he was “so happy to have found his true calling, after wasting years of his life at a shitty radio station”.
Farrelly will work alongside the likes of Sir Mark Todd and Blyth Tait, on such horses as Ready Teddy, and Small Man’s Syndrome, with a view to the Rio Olympics in 20-16.
Give The Morning Rumble a call on 0800 ROCK PHONE and have a crack at reading the sports news. Ali will judge the best entries and pick a winner on Friday morning (live from France).
