Today’s highlights


The morning kicks off in nail-biting fashion, with the Silver Ferns facing England in a ‘must win’ match. After their devastating loss to Malawi, our netballers will be hoping they can overcome the English side to proceed through to the semi-finals. The action kicks off at 11am, LIVE on TVNZ 1.


The trans-Tasman rivalry heats up in the hockey this evening, with the men’s Black Sticks taking on Australia from 6.20pm, LIVE on TVNZ DUKE.

Lawn Bowls

It’s a Lawn Bowls bonanza, LIVE on TVNZ Games Extra from 11am. The men’s Singles and women’s Pairs are up first, with games against India and Canada respectively. The two games have the same start time, so we’ll be covering them simultaneously to keep you up to speed with the action. Local commentary will be provided by John McBeth in the morning and in the afternoon we have Duane Dell’Oca.


It’s crunch time in the Boxing on TVNZ 1! LIVE from 2.15pm, we’ll have the women’s 45-48kg semi-final, featuring Kiwi Tasmyn Benny up against England’s Kristina O Hara. At 2.45pm, it’s Troy Garton’s turn in the women’s 60kg quarter final. Troy is up against Botswana’s Aratwa Kasemang. In the evening, we’re over to the men, with Ryan Scaife fighting Cameroon’s Dieudonne Wilfried Seyi Ntsengue in the 75kg quarter final.
