Everyone in Union's happy about it will be infectious and I hope this positive news throughout the organisation. for the dynamic back's services Neil admitting the tug-of-war for the struggling Waratahs, had been a distraction an intense final day of negotiations. climaxing in a last ditch bid from League. As expected, and Peter Holmes a Court South Sydney's Russell Crowe

the conversation. The meeting was very productive,

pressure and pull from Union We understand the financial and we wish him the best of luck. Their efforts ultimately in vain. Tuqiri committing to a 4-year contract with another year optional which will keep him in rugby beyond the next two world cups. The deal rumoured to be worth upwards of $1 million per year, sealed within minutes of the 5:00pm deadline after almost a half year of negotiation. This was biggest contract I think Lote was ever going to sign and it was probably going to set him up for life, one way or the other. So you gotta respect that decisions of that magnitude don't come easy and you get one shot at them. So certainly, from my point of view, I respect how hard that decision must have been for Lote and the pressure on him. A points decision to Union in the eternal battle of the codes. The NRL putting on a brave face at the launch of Monday night league. I'm not really surprised with what happened today. I'm sure that he had a genuine interest in Rugby League. But other factors have swayed his decision and we'll all get on with life. Every now and then,

a marquee player will come along that you just have to have a go at. We had a go at Lote. We couldn't make it in the end. But our priority now turns back to the players we have inside the club.

Anthony Goodridge for Sports Tonight. Hawthorn is facing the prospect of being without Brownlow medallist Shane Crawford for its Round 1 clash with the Brisbane Lions. The veteran midfielder has been given a 1-match suspension after being reported for two separate incidents on the weekend. It wasn't caught on camera, but with Peter Bell holding his throat, Shane Crawford was always in trouble. The veteran Hawk facing a 1-match ban for striking after the incident was deemed intentional and high. Crawford was also reprimanded for striking Dockers youngster Ryley Dunne. But no charges were laid as a result of this melee, which followed the incident. Geelong midfielder James Kelly has been charged with rough conduct and offered a 2-week ban, following this hit on Lions youngster Jed Adcock, early in the third quarter of last Friday night's NAB Cup semi-final. COMMENTATOR: And I tell you, if he's staying down, you know that's not good. He might be knocked out. The incident assessed as reckless and high, and of medium impact. ?TAKE GRAB NAME: kelly incident IN WORDS: oooh' OUT WORDS: Oh, a bit more than a bump, Andy Maher. In Brisbane, the Lions are hoping powerhouse forward Jonathan Brown will make a big impact, when he returns for Saturday night's NAB Cup grand final. Brown hasn't played since round 10 last year, but is fit and raring to go. We've thought he'd be rady to play this weekend, for a few weeks now. He's been a little bit fragile lately, I guess, so I hope he get's through this week's training and he'll be ready to go. Carlton's Jarrad Waite has been pencilled-in to stand on Brown, his biggest challenge in his new role as a defender. But the Blues are confident they can complete the ideal pre-season campaign.

I think it'd great for club if we come out and have a win this week. We weren't planning on getting this far at the start. Now we're there we want to win it. The Lions already with one win this week - they've finally been able to secure their accommodation in Melbourne during the Grand Prix. Dave Adamson for Sports Tonight. Cricket's World Cup is officially under way after a colourful opening ceremony in Jamaica. And it seems the Aussies are still the team to beat. Welcome to the World Cup, calypso-style. 2,000 performers launched the 51 matches over the next 47 days, the tournament opening with some choice words at the home of reggae music. One love, one heart. Welcome to Jamaica and feel alright. And that's how the Australians say they're feeling, despite their run of losses, serious injuries and the demise of their world number one ranking. I guess it's an interesting situation for us to be in.

Probably right at the moment, we're the number two-ranked team in the world,

but we're probably favourites to win this event. So it's a bit strange. And most of Ponting's fellow captains agreed after a special photo call at Montego Bay. Any team can win the Cup. But Australia, when you look at the record for the past 10 years, I would call them still favourites. We don't see them as vulnerable in any way. I think we've got a huge amount of respect for them and, you know, we're not taking that game lightly

just because they've had a few injuries. The new world number one team is as confident as always - just don't call them chokers. That word is quite a laughable word, except when you're out eating spare ribs or something like that, you know? Leanne West for Sports Tonight. Well, it's finally happened - someone has beaten Roger Federer. The world number one suffering an early exit at the Masters Series event at Indian Wells. It was a day of upsets with Aussie Lleyton Hewitt unable to continue his winning form from Las Vegas. Federer defeated in straight sets by Argentine lucky loser Gullermo Canyas. After bowing out in the qualfiers, Canas was included into the main draw following the withdrawal of Xavier Malisse and the Argentine was clearly keen to make the most of his chances, having recently returned to game from a 15-month drug suspension. COMMENTATOR: He's got him. Wonderful play from Guillermo Canas. Canas breaking Federer early, but this Swiss master quickly got the match back on serve. The Argentine forced to save two set-points before rallying to close out the opener 7-5. He's done it. UMPIRE: Game and first set. Federer's feet strapped during the break

and he attempted to run Canas off his in the second. But the South American had all the answers. Right up the middle. The world number one's 41-match winning streak and hopes of breaking a 30-year-old Open era record eventually dismantled, as Canas bolted to a shock straight-sets win. Guillermo Canas with perhaps the biggest win of his career and certainly the biggest upset. The upsets rolled on as Lleyton Hewitt failed to continue his recent Los Vegas form. World number 100, Janko Tipsarevic, claiming a double-break in the deciding set, before defeating the former champion 6-2 to advance through to the third round. A big win for Tipsarevic. And with Federer out of the tournament it was left up to the others to replicate his style. Oh, it's brilliant - absolutely sensational. Frenchmen Michael Llodra's efforts unfortunately not enough to halt a straight-sets hiding from Tommy Haas. Andrew Brown for Sports Tonight. Brad, all of Australia hopes so but reality has no heart for patiotism Mark Webber has a car that doesn't agree with him. but reality has no heart for patiotism or a man who's been dealt a cruel lot of luck in recent times. And it appears reality is, once again, Mark Webber has a car that doesn't agree with him. The RB3 has a shrink wrapped body and that's causing cooling problems. Webber's former boss at Minardi, Australian Paul Stoddart, is equally concerned with the Red Bull car's preseason performance. The testing times at the moment are not good. The Red Bull doesn't look as though it has delivered the promise everybody thought it would but that doesn't mean you would right Mark off from Melbourne because it's a special place and I think if there is any place he's going to want a good result it's here. Here's Webber's GP record - 86 starts. 0 wins. Just the one podium at Monaco. But so much potential and so much praise in his time. Unfortunately, also so many DNFs. In fact, more than half of his F1 season last year was did not finish results. His former Williams team-mate Nico Rosberg, the yougest driver in the field, in Sydney today.

He says Red Bull may come good later in the year. They are struggling a little bit initially with the new car so it won't be the easiest I think but in the long term I think it won't be a problem. Well, the F1 circus rocking into town. Things are about to get extremely manic. The race can be seen here on Ten. That begins on Friday with practise. Tomorrow we'll be speaking with Mark Webber. We'll speak to him what we just spoke about, and that is how red Bull will fare this year. But now, Brad, it's back into your hands. V8s now, and Mark Skaife will have to wait to learn if his Holden Racing Team will be suspended from the Supercar championship. A long board meeting on the Gold Coast today failed to reach a decision on Skaife who must prove to the V8s ruling body TEGA that he is the sole owner of Holden's number one Supercar team. If found guilty of being in breach of the sport's licensing agreement, Skaife and his team-mate Todd Kelly could be suspended from the next round of the championship in Perth in a fortnight. Nine caution periods dominated today's NASCAR race in Las Vegas with 15 cars wrecked on the high speed, high banked oval, just north of the famous casino strip. Fortunately all drivers walked away unscathed including pole sitter Kasey Kane. Defending series champion Jimmy Johnson took the win. New Zealand Soccer has until Wednesday to prove it's capable of funding an A-League team, or be replaced by an Australian franchise. Outgoing FFA Operations Manager Matt Carroll announced this afternoon there will be no New Zealand team next season announced this afternoon next season unless a Wellington consortium can come up with $2 million. Without the necessary funding, it's very hard to run an A-League club.

So we've asked them to provide better particulars. We did that on Friday. We've still yet to receive those. So we've gone back to two of our local consortiums who are interested in A-League licences and started discussions with them. should New Zealand's bid fall short.
